Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm in highschool and I'll be in 10th grade next year but I'm really interested in studying Christian Ministries at Biola. I was wondering, are there any AP classes that you would recommend I take? AP World History, AP Lit or AP Lang, and AP Psych are available to me. I just don't want to take something for no reason, you know?
Anonymous asked: Kind of a big question... But, I am a freshman in college now and considered Biola last year and am considering transferring next year, but I really can't figure out if its Gods will or not. I've prayed about it and genuinely sought God's will but I can't figure it out. I'm so stressed as the deadline is this Wednesday. Hope do I decipher Gods will about this? How did you?
Anonymous asked: Q: I've grown up in a christian home all of my life but this year my relationship has just started to deepen. I've been seeing God's hands on every aspect in my life and it amazes me. I'm going to join a small group, etc. I would love to be encouraged and dive into my relationship with God, just I feel at public school I feel there isn't much encouragement. In your opinion...

Anonymous asked: Do you think it's a bad reason in considering Biola 1) because I want to be surrounded by good quality people to help myself grow strong and be on the right path And 2) (of course) because I want to be encouraged in my faith and learn how God works in my life? I just feel like everyone's incentives at my school all revolve around sex and getting hammered and I just don't feel like...
Community and Growth: Response to anon's question
Hi friend, Shaunna here. Just wanted to preface this by saying that this is a great question - one that doesn’t get asked nearly enough, and one that I will be intimately honest with you about. That being said, I would appreciate your respect as I share a little of my life with you. Also, please know that I am not assuming anything personal about the asker, but strictly speaking in general...
Anonymous asked: I feel overwhelmed with the lack of morals and respect in people at my high school and I feel fairly alone with what I follow at times because of this. In your opinion is it wrong I'm considering Biola for the good community ill be placed in so I can grow and be encouraged in my faith more than ever? I feel it would help me because I'm just diving into Christ's depths this year. ...
Anonymous asked: I have a 3.1 GPA and I think I'm going to get around a 1700 on my SAT. And I'm worrying so much, I want to go to Biola really bad. I was thinking if I get straight A's senior year first semester it will boost my GPA up, so I was wondering does Biola look at your senior year first semester grades? Thanks. Oh and I was also wondering, how much is it to live on campus? And what are the...

Anonymous asked: I've been reading through the Biola confessions page... is it really that "bad"? Is there a lot of drug/alcohol use on campus or does it just seem that way on the confessions page?

Transferring and Making Friends
Hi friends! We received a question basically asking if its hard to make friends as a transfer. As an introverted transfer myself, I was a little worried about being stuck in my room all day with no one to talk to. Of course, I had the advantage of having friends at Biola prior to my transfer, so I guess I wasn’t THAT worried. Needless to say, its something that a lot of people wonder about...

How easy it for a "CAR-LESS" student to get...
All right… so you might not like this answer but it’s as easy or hard as you make it. If you want to go somewhere, you need to be proactive about finding the means to get there if you don’t have a car. You need to make friends that have a car (somehow every friend group has that one friend with a car). When you want to go somewhere, YOU need to find a way to get there. However, Biola does a great...

inthislifekj asked: Since a biblical studies minor is required, does reading the bible ever become a chore for homework?
What I love about Stewart is simple, The people resemble a pimple. Weird when you see them, May hurt to the touch, But once you pop them, You love them so much!
