Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
California Baptist University Riverside California
The campus of private liberal arts institution California Baptist University brings a touch of the Mediterranean to the Golden State. The school was set up in 1950 in El Monte as California Baptist College by the California Southern Baptist Convention. However, it moved to its magnificent present location in the city of Riverside five years later and was officially renamed California Baptist University in 1998. Mission Revival style buildings with red roofs, picturesque courtyards and palm trees grace the attractive 131 acre site, which accommodates over 7,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. The charming W.E. James Building whose final stone was laid in 1934 is one of the campus highlights. This facility plays host to classrooms and laboratories for the school s faculties of behavioral sciences, arts and sciences, and allied health.
