University of Redlands provides excellent academics for its 3,000 students, which is evidenced in its numbers. The school boasts strong retention rates, graduation numbers, and the student-to-faculty ratio is excellent. These objective measures reflect positive subjective realities for their student body.

In fact, U of R shows that they retain 85% of their first-year students. This retention rate indicates that, when first-year students arrive on campus they find their courses and professors interesting and high quality. With a small student body, they probably meet older students who are likewise satisfied. Further, they probably have fun at campus events, enjoy the recreation facilities, and more.

This retention rate is bolstered with a strong graduation rate. Since 76% of students graduate, there's a better-than-chance likelihood that the friend groups that form in the first year will crack bubbly together after completing their bachelor's degrees. Redlands shows that around 8% transfer out and presumably complete their degree elsewhere. Redlands is providing strong academics for its students.

A huge reason for these strong retention and graduation numbers is the student-to-faculty ratio. Redlands students are in classes that average 12 students. While entry-level courses likely have more, once students enter their major focus area, they find much smaller class sizes with accessible professors.
