CBU scores high in 2023 Niche college rankings

Riverside, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2022) – The Niche 2023 college rankings recently were released, and California Baptist University once again received top marks for campus life.

Nationally, CBU came in at No. 3 for “Best College Campuses,” No. 5 for “Best College Food” and No. 24 for “Best College Dorms” respectively. CBU continues to place high in the national categories year over year.

The Niche college rankings are based on various statistical analyses per category, according to the site. The results compile data from sources such as the U.S. Department of Education and National Science Foundation and nearly 500,000 reviews from students.

“Coming from a state school I must say this is the far better choice to get a quality education and college experience. There are so many ways to get connected to other people including students and professors,” wrote a student reviewer on for CBU. “The food is amazing whether it be in the cafeteria or the small food shops around campus. The people here are very open and kind. Staff, counselors and professors are easy to get a hold of and are usually very responsive and understanding of student situations.”

CBU placed No. 27 for “Best Hispanic-Serving Institutions” in the national rankings. In the Niche ratings for California colleges, CBU ranked No. 2 for “Best College Campuses,” “Best College Food” and “Best College Dorms.” Additionally in the state rankings, CBU placed No. 5 for “Best Christian Colleges,” No. 7 for “Best College Athletics” and No. 11 for “Best Colleges for Education.”
