A unique aspect of attending Loma Linda University is the many opportunities students have to participate in mission work. Some of our trips include traveling to Haiti, Ethiopia, China, and Brazil. We are always looking for new adventures and ways to help our local and global communities. Join us and be inspired by what we can do together!
