Freshman · Sociology

if you want to get the most out of your academic and social experience in torrey AND love books AND love Jesus join Torrey Honors Institute!! Literally the best decision I've ever made was applying for Torrey even though it was after their deadline and I knew so little about it.



Freshman · Biology

The community at Biola helped me so much in adjusting to living in another country, tackling the more challenging coursework, and connecting with other students. It’s not hard to find people (students, faculty, or staff) willing to work with you and make sure you’re doing okay.
