Boring Resident to Graduate from Biola University

Boring Resident to Graduate from Biola University

Charles Bailey of Boring, OR will graduate from Biola University in La Mirada, CA this week. Bailey is one of 1,118 students walking the stage to commemorate their journey as an Eagle at Biola's spring commencement. A total of 800 undergraduate and 318 graduate students will commence from Biola into their next chapter on May 3 and 4.

Biola is proud of Bailey and their commitment to reaching their goal of obtaining an undergraduate degree in Cinema and Media Arts.

Bailey is part of the generation of students who may not have had a high school graduation due to pandemic cancellations, so Biola is making the experience extra special. Social media mogul, "magical" filmmaker and Biola alumnus Zach King ('12) will deliver the keynote address with several interactive surprises for graduates to experience during the ceremonies. Prior to finals week, students had a chance to attend Biola's Grad Fair, a celebration with various booths they could visit to help prepare them for life after graduation, including a station where students could make a tassel with their high school colors to honor the school from which they may not have been able to walk in a ceremony.

Founded in 1908, Biola is committed to the mission of biblically centered education, scholarship and service - equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. With more than 5,000 students at its Southern California campus and around the world, Biola's eight schools offer more than 250 academic programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. Recognized as the most comprehensive Christian university, ranked highest in North America for operationalizing its mission (OCIG) and ranked as one of the "Best National Universities" by U.S. News and World Report, Biola offers its students a premier educational and co-curricular experience.
