La Sierra University is a Christian coeducational institution located in inland Southern California and is part of the Seventh-day Adventist system of higher education.
The University offers graduate and undergraduate curricula in applied and liberal arts and sciences, business and management, religion, and programs for professional education in fulfillment of requirements for teaching credentials.
Intellectual pursuits are facilitated by the University Library, museums, Observatory, Arboretum, Brandstater Gallery, MICOL computing laboratory, Learning Support and Testing Center, Hancock and Stahl Centers, and other campus resources. Physical fitness is encouraged on campus by such activities as intramural and varsity sports, physical education courses, and by three swimming pools, a fitness center, and tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts.
The University buildings are on a gentle slope looking eastward over the Riverside valley, with its world-famous citrus and walnut groves and its palm-lined boulevards. The approximately 100 acres owned by the University allow, during the winter months, the snow-clad peaks of the surrounding ranges to be seen rising above the rolling open fields--a view of rare beauty from the campus, truly a scenic part of the Inland Empire.
The convenient access to Southern California’s wide range of both participatory and spectator activities enables the University to offer a multitude of unique cultural and educational experiences appropriate for the responsible student.
