Spring Preview Day is a two-day event where students and parents have the chance to explore different parts of the Biola community. You'll spend time checking out classes, meeting and chatting with students and faculty, worshiping at a weekly praise chapel, and touring the campus. Students are also invited to spend the night in a residence hall so they can experience dorm life firsthand.
The cost of Spring Preview Day is $25 per student and $20 per parent. If you have any questions, please contact our office at (562) 944-0351 x5353.
Spring Preview Day is our biggest event of the spring semester. Generally we welcome around 300 to 400 total attendees, students and parents. Because of the large number of guests on campus, it is difficult to for us to accommodate specific requests at this event. We will do everything we can to meet your needs, however, if you are unable to attend this event, feel free to schedule an individual visit on another day.
Students are invited to stay on campus and get the real college experience in one of Biola's residence halls. Students who have friends that are also attending the event can indicate this on the registration page. Students who would like to stay with a current Biola student that they know need to make these arrangements on their own. Please contact the Biola student and work out the details with them before Spring Preview Day weekend.
*Please note that students will be sleeping on the floors of the dorms rooms unless the host has a couch or another bed to offer.
Parents and any additional guests are encouraged to stay at one of several local hotels, some of which offer a special rate for Biola visitors.
To schedule a vocal or instrumental audition, please contact the Music Office at (562) 903-4892. Auditions are for junior, senior, or transfer students who wish to major or minor in music or are interested in being part of a Biola ensemble.
