What students Say

One of the most positive aspects of La Sierra University is the opportunities created for students to expand their learning through internships, student jobs, or on-campus clubs, such as Enactus. La Sierra cares not only about what happens to students while they’re at the university, but also about what happens to them when they graduate.

I am so grateful that I completed my premedicine requirements at La Sierra University. It not only taught me science and prepared me for continuing my professional career—it amplified my spiritual growth.
