The most important part of my life here at Biola is definitely the word of God. I'm so grateful to be able to study the Bible academically, and be formed spiritually with my peers. That brings me to the second most important thing, which is my friends, with whom I've grown so much in my faith in just the past two years alone.
I value Biola’s closely knit, Christ-centered community. Biola does not only advertise as this, but it is truly shown in every student, professor, and faculty member on campus, which I am extremely grateful for.
I value the genuine, Christian community of peers and professors, whom God has used to grow me not just academically, but personally and spiritually also.
