Some of Your Thoughts on IRIS
"IRIS was a class of different quality—one of the most valuable classes that deeply enriched my intellectual and spiritual ability to understand and analyze culture and the world."
"What an amazing experience to be taught by so many brilliant people from so many different fields. I wish all of my classes were formatted this way."
"IRIS beautifully embodies what Biola stands for and should absolutely happen again."
"It is as if I can see through several windows that had previously been dark. It’s going to be impossible to return to traditional classes after this."
"The best class I have ever taken. I only wish such an approach to academics could be done more often. There was never a dull moment."
"This course was excellent and by far one of my favorite courses taken at Biola. I highly recommend this course becoming an annual option for Interterm."
"I was so used to merely receiving and transmitting information that I felt unimportant and unvalued as a person. A fresh stream of living water has been given to me here."
"Great job IRIS professors! I really enjoyed this class. Please make IRIS available for other students—integrated learning is powerful for spiritual and intellectual growth."
"It so effectively integrated various disciplines of academic and art into a comprehensive examination of life and the way we ought to see it and live it as Christians."
