Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The program uses a holistic approach to teaching the students about the subject matter, but the location of the school hinders it from all its potential.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

When comparing Loma Linda's Counseling and Family Sciences academic vigor to other schools in the country,I can proudly say that we have one of the best (if not the best) programs. The Marriage and Family Therapy's high quality training program supplies students with more than enough training to work in the real world after graduation.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that pros of Loma Linda University include the fact that this school is extremely well recognized and valued. They expect a lot from their students, but in return they provide all the necessary steps and support to ensure the success of their students. The facilities are expanding and appropriate, and faculty is well-trained and willing to assist. Some cons of Loma Linda University could be the price of schooling, but I understand that it's a private institution.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2013

Hi I'm currently attending Loma Linda University. I am going to be graduating this year with my MS in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Overall I enjoyed LLU. Honestly the best part about it is the quality of education I received, as well as the willingness of staff and professors to support me throughout my educational career! The atmosphere of the program is that we are all here (students and faculty) to help each other succeed. Therefore, all students are more than willing to lend each other a hand. It is also important to recognize that Loma Linda sets very high standards for their students, but it is only to allow students to gain the greatest knowledge before entering into the workforce. Therefore, as an educational program, I would highly recommend Loma Linda University. Of course with pros, there are always cons. Since Loma Linda is a private university, the cost of attendance is very expensive. I graduated from a CSU with no loans, and now have accrued over $75,000 worth of loans, within the last 3 years. The financial aid officers are very helpful, yet I was disappointed to find out there LLU, did not have an office to help find grants and scholarships. Another con, deals with the location of the school. Surrounding cities include San Bernardino, Colton, Redlands, Highlands, and a few others. The campus itself is safe, yet I always felt that if I happened to take one turn in the wrong direction, it was very likely that I would be in a scary part of town. Just a heads up!! Hope this helps for anyone doing a college search!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Overall its a good program. There is some disorganization to it, but the professors are great and you can actually get to know them unlike larger universities where you only get to interact with teaching assistants.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The program has a strong footing in practical knowledge. This is apparent through the service learning portion of the curriculum, which requires students to work on a community project with a local partner. Students are also required to do a "Field Practicum," which is essentially a 400+ hours internship experience relevant to public health with a written component required for graduation. The program lacks some direction. I think that if you want to obtain a strong basis in theory then this is not the program for you. The program is well-rounded, which sometimes means that we do not get to be subject experts in any one thing. This is both good and bad, because it means that we may be mediocre in many things, but not great in any one thing. This really all depends on how much effort the student makes.
