Point Loma Nazarene University is a great place if you're looking for a small Christian campus. My only downfall is that the cafeteria is not the best. As long as you know that the campus is beautiful and the people are great, I really recommend it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware of the caf and the raccoons, lol.

The community established at Point Loma Nazarene University has shaped an accepting atmosphere with a large variety of activities and ways to be more involved. This has made my education experience feel more personal and intimate as I engage readily with the close-knit campus that is accepting of diversity. I like how proactive and intentional our campus works to keep our communities integrated and students involved in things off-campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Point Loma Nazarene University is not known for its great food. The cafeteria is communicably accepted as sub-par however everything else makes up for it.

Higher education is important to me and I received that in a lot of ways there. I learned a lot of valuable lessons from my major, to my general studies. The truth is, that I had to rely on a select few classes to feel academically challenged and motivated to learn. However, those select few were such highlights. The cafeteria was a good place. I genuinely bonded with so many of the people who worked there. They were the only other people who spoke Spanish and were like me, and I had a very familial feeling around them. I often felt lost and like I didn't belong and they always motivated me and treated me like their own child. It's how I've seen my parents do for other kids and how my community embraces each other.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The thing about PLNU is that they refuse to address how they have a massive problem with racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, predatory people in power, cover-ups, and abuse of power. The social life is incredibly toxic and suffocating and does not invite anyone outside of the male, white, straight, cisgender, and Christian worldview. I know that from first-hand experience. A lot of the teachers reflect that same sentiment which makes learning unsafe and even more difficult.
