4 College Junior

Majors: It's quite easy to get into my major, or any other major. But it's keeping up with it all that becomes the difficult part. With the pre-nursing program, you must work hard to get into the actual Nursing program, but many people do it and we have one of the best Nursing programs. As for my psychology major, it's wonderful. Anyone can become a psych major, but you must prepare yourself to do the most reading you've ever done in your life, as well as research and many papers.

Campus Dining: The Dining Hall can get tiring and pretty expensive, but it's not like it's terrible food. There's always something to eat. If yo don't like the meal being served, there's other options like cereal, bread, fruits, salad bar, and snacks such as chips and candy and many other things. There are many nice restaurants around the area as well, which are good for nights out and dates.

Majors: I love my program. I was a Pre-Nursing major to begin with but it didn't interest me as much as Psychology did, and when I switched everything clicked and the professors welcomed me with open arms. It's not an easy major and it requires a lot of work such as reading and writing papers, but it's worth it and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have a lot of respect for the teachers and I love learning as much as I can from them. They help me figure out what my future goals are, as far as grad school, and what I want to specialize in.

Majors: I go to a dorm room college that's in the Napa Valley and it's absolutely beautiful. The campus is breathtaking and everyone around you becomes family. I'm a Psychology major and I'm loving every minute of it. The professors are brilliant and so helpful; they make it interesting and they really challenge you, helping you know how to succeed even better for grad school. So many of the professors have met quite a few famous psychologists and their stories are so interesting to listen to. Every different selection of Major that Pacific Union College offers is incredible and everyone works hard to help the students succeed. The environment and atmosphere is the best part of the experience. I'm involved with performing music a lot, and for me it's the most rewarding. This college has become a home for me. It's difficult to afford it and I may be loosing my chance to go back because it's getting more difficult to take out a loan, but I would do anything to go back because this college and everyone a part of it is perfect for me.

Campus Housing: Winning Is the Best – Winning Hall is the best. I share a bathroom with 2 people. The bathroom is bigger than Andre Hall. It has a full bath and shower. The rooms are fairly big and clean. The social atmosphere is the best. Dorm worships, social functions for different occasions. Everyone is friendly.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't do Greek life at our school... at least I don't think so. We have different clubs on campus. For instance, the Biology club which do fun outings and vespers every so often. There is a pre-med/dent club for those interested in that career which is what I plan on doing.

Parking: Its a decent price and there is plenty of parking..but with certain permits you have to be careful so campus security doesn't ticket you! they stingy

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports More for Fun – There are a ton of intermerals or football, basketball, soccer, volleyball...ect so any student can get involved! The schools teams are kind of a joke, but we try we have great team spirit! There is an okay gym and its free to workout at and has a nice rock climbing wall. The campus itself is a workout because its really hilly.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Little Italy – There are tons of vineyards, its beautiful wherever you go, so there are a ton of high end restaurants with really great food. Most of them you have to dress fancy, but if you're a poor college student like me there are more local restaurants that are great to eat at with friends!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Good Friend Group – Since you are stuck on a hill with a small student population, you really grow close friendships with other people. Its great I love it as a student you often go on outings to restaurants and other fun adventures to keep up entertainment

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Lucky If Its "Okay" – This food is all vegetarian, the school didn't pass food inspection twice. All the students basically starve themselves. Food is over priced and you have to spend 1000 dollars each term and if you don't you don't get your money back

Facilities: I Wish There Were More – I wish there were more events going on around the school but I can't complain. Most students are studying anyway so that all takes away from some of the student life.

Nightlife: The Christian School – Pacific Union College is a Christian school so the nightlife isn't as popping as in other Colleges.

Campus Dining: It Is Vegetarian – The food is good enough to survive and I like that it's almost always available for me to gorge myself but overall the food is sub par.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most Beautiful School in America – Pacific Union College was given the honor by Newsweekly of being the most beautiful school setting wise and student wise. And I couldn't agree more.

Majors: Student Teaching – as a music teacher, it is part of the course to teach at a school, which can be a internship, it's unpaid, but it gives me a experiences of teaching

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus Buses Are the Best Option – the college bus is free (i think or maybe it's in the package for paying, i don't know). also,they are very nice to the students and if you have friends that can give you a ride, that's good too.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Good Strict College – i believe that the PUC is a good strictly college. All the students what are the rules that they need to follow

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Great Experience, Old Dorms – The dorms that are closet to campus are old, but they sure are fun. I wish they were a little newer for the guys.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus has a unique spirit of joyful people all progressing academically in their lives.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities are fairly older, but they are doing a good job at progressively making improvements each year.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – There is no campus crime that is ever even reported to my knowledge.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The Night Life – There are not really any school parties on the campus at all, but it's not too hard to find parties close by. The school is not too far from San Francisco also, which has plenty of nightlife oppurtunities.

1 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: On campus nightlife consists of vespers at the church, dinners at faculty homes, game night in the cafeteria, or classical music concernts. Off campus nightlife is at least an hour's drive away and most of what you'll want to do is forbidden by school rules anyway.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Vegetarian campus – I always enjoyed the food at the cafeteria, but I am a lifelong vegetarian. There is no meat available in the entire town. The local grocery store doesn't sell meat, alcohol or even caffeinated products. If you want a hamburger, you will have to drive 10 miles down a very windy, mountain road to get to an expensive restaurant down in St. Helena. By city ordinance, St. Helena has NO fast food joints except A&W which was allowed to stay in town because it has been there since the 1960s.
