From the moment I visited Redlands, I was welcomed. Current students and alumni phoned me, a professor, the Dean of Admissions, the track coaches... I was welcomed. In my four years at Redlands, I was able to take advantage of a world-class education in a small-town environment. The first (and LAST!) time I missed a class, my professor called me to make sure I was okay. Uhh...

Classes were about 15 students on average, and you recognize outsiders. There are few students there - about 2000 from what I understand today - and so you get to know everyone, at least by sight.

I spent many happy times at professors' homes, and travelled abroad to study. I took classes through the independent Johnston College, and was an honors student through the honors program.

I ran track, was recruited for cross-country even though I'd never run more than a mile at a time, and basically, welcomed. There's nothing like Redlands.

However, there were several people who hated it - if you are looking for a big, party school, don't even bother. It's too expensive, too academic, and far too remote for that. L.A. is an hour away - without traffic (and how often is THAT a reality). But for a general chill, you can get to the mountains, the beaches, or L.A. pretty conveniently. Just don't think you'll be partying there every night cuz it ain't gonna happen.

PROS: Small classes, dedicated professors
CONS: Some people would rather party

The University of Redlands offers a great education with the personalized attention you can get at a smaller college. They are continually upgrading the buildings on campus, so much so that it looks quite different from when I attended! One of the things that attracted me to Redlands was the beauty of the campus. There is a beautiful "quad" area in the middle of campus with the chapel at one end and university buildings at the other. On clear days there is a gorgeous view of the mountains in the background. I loved my time at Redlands and feel it was well worth the money.
