University Experience

Welcome to La Sierra University!

University Experience is open to high school juniors and seniors. Spending a few days at La Sierra will not only give you the chance to see our campus, but also the opportunity to take a sneak peek into the academic, social, and spiritual experiences of a La Sierra University student. Be sure to take advantage of this event as we pack the experience of a university year into one informative, action-packed two-day visit!

Why Should you Attend?

There’s no better way to get to know our university than to spend time with our faculty and hang out with current La Sierra students while experiencing this unique community.
At University Experience you will:

  • Meet faculty and staff.
  • Interact with current and prospective students.
  • Meet activity leaders and representatives from numerous clubs on campus.
  • Participate in hands-on learning activities created by La Sierra University professors and students.
  • Learn about the admission process, financial aid, and scholarship opportunities available at La Sierra.

Our Sunny Location?

Whenever you decide to visit, you can expect plenty of sunshine as we tour the campus and our classrooms. Riverside offers great shopping areas and a wide variety of restaurants, along with art museums, city parks, and a farmer’s market. Plus, we’re only an hour’s drive from the beach and the mountains.

If you Can't Attend?

No worries! Give us a call at 951.785.2325 and we’ll be happy to schedule an individual visit that works for you. Organizing a group visit? Please ask for Enrollment Services when you call, and we’ll take care of all the details!
