Intellectual Well-being

Developing Minds for Lifelong Learning

Intellectual well-being involves exploring new ideas, expanding understanding and seeking out new challenges. There is no better time than your college years to ask big questions, wrestle with philosophical ideas, hone your communication skills, practice critical thinking and, ultimately, realize that the world God created is so much more vast and nuanced than we originally imagined.

Along the way, we hope you’ll develop habits for life-long learning. Whether it be talking through major or course choices, learning time-management skills, or attending a musical performance or art installation, Biola offers much to support you in the process.
