Review Vanguard University of Southern California
Amazing Campus! The professors seem great and many people to look forward to seeing. I love the diversity and the personal relationships everyone has with one another. I know that if I have the chance to attend this university I will be more than blessed the second I step on that campus. It is also a great school for any kind of liberal arts of Christian major. You will learn a great deal of information that you won't be able to find anywhere else. The campus is beautiful and always so clean. Thank God for an institution such as this.
Vanguard had not been my first choice when I was considering which college to attend, but the longer I've been here, the more I've fallen in love with the school. The community is absolutely fantastic. I have made such amazing friendships here, both with students and professors. Academics are decent, but the school's strength is in its camaraderie among the people. During my time here, not only have I learned from the courses I have taken, but I have also learned many lessons about life that cannot be taught in a classroom. I love being a student here. Lots of fun, very safe, easy to make friends and get plugged in, awesome professors who truly care about their students, wonderful location. Vanguard is 10 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from Disneyland! I love it here.
Vanguard is great for students who want a small school with small class sizes and attention from their professors. In general, you won't receive the typical "college experience" as Vanguard doesn't really feel like a college campus. Not a ton going on in the way of activity, but there are lots of ways to get involved in the school. You will be required to attend church 30 times a semester at the school, so roughly twice a week, so be warned if this is not for you. The education itself is phenomenal and it feels like they really designed there programs with the students in mind. Overall, it's a good school, though not as amazing as what you could find elsewhere
