The Right Size

Chris Concepcion

Chris Concepcion understands Redlands' small-class advantage.

Transcript of the video interview:

"I actually started thinking about college rather soon in high school. Never really thinking that I would get in, but I just wanted to apply anyway.

"I was looking at big schools; I was looking at Columbia; I was looking at Georgetown, Stanford, Berkeley, UCLA, and it basically came down to financial aid packages.

"I was looking at Redlands, and I was looking at Berkeley. I was accepted into Berkeley, and Berkeley was huge. It was a huge school.

"That's one thing I really like about this school--was that my smallest class I've had is six. Six people in a class. And the biggest class that I've had has been, I want to say 22, opposed to at a large UC, having the classes be like 300."

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
