College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no greek – PUC is small enough so students can be part of a community without social fraternities. There are lots of clubs and honor fraternities as well, however.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing dangerous – Now that the Zodiac Killer is gone, there is nothing to be afraid of.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Even when its hot, there's a nice breeze. Might snow once or twice a year, nothing extreme.

Scholarships: They give everyone some aid but they don't give out that much aid to any one person so if you need a LOT, you're probably screwed.

Campus Strictness: Sometimes PUC's administration is very strict. Other times they are very lax. It's completely unpredictable.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: There Is None – To get to any sort of public transportation, you would have to walk at least ten miles down a huge and unsafe hill. There are no buses on campus to help people get around. This school is horrible about transportation.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There Could Be More – This school is very expensive. They try to get every ounce of money that they can get out of one person.The financial aid that they do give is limited and not a whole lot. They could definitely make the transition smoother to get the aid also.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: In the Middle of Nowhere – This school is up on a hill with absolutely nothing but houses for the people who work here, one little tiny grocery store with nothing but vegetarian foods, and there is no such thing as public transportation unless you count an ambulance. The closest town is very tiny and it is ten miles down the big hill. The closest city where there is decent shopping and attractions is an hour away.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It Is Sporadic and Unpredictable – It could rain one day and be 80 degrees and sunny the next. classes are far from the dorms and it does not help if you walk to class wearing the wrong attire for the weather.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Caring Professors – Haven't had a professor that wasn't helpful to students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There's really no reason to it. Totally unpredictable. Also, usually you won't get caught.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Select Few Options – There are very few bars locally. Parties are rare but they do happen.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not the Worst – Some meals are really really good, some are not. At least you have choices, and everyone has different favorites so I guess they're doing something to please everyone, sometime...

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Unpredictable but never extreme. It'll keep you on your toes and comfortable.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Check Out St. Helena – St. Helena has been called the dining capitol of the world and it makes sense with all the delicious places to go. Just be careful, its not always easy on the wallet!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great School to Go to – There is so much to do and get involved in here. Its big enough to have lots of opportunities like a bigger school but small enough so everyone can get involved in stuff and feel like one big family.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Drive locally, fly long-distance. Shuttles to most places for breaks.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Fairly Strict When It Comes to Drug Usage – Drug usage at times will only suspend a person for a week. Other times to make an example out of the students they will suspend a student for a whole quarter or even expel them for drug usage such as alcohol or marijuana.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dont Get What You Pay for – The cost of food is fairly high for the quality of food by tastes texture and presentation. It has only vegetarian and vegan options no meat.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: San Francisco Is Great to Go to but a Bit of a Drive – The drive to the Bay area is on average 2 hours which is a bit of a stretch to do unless its on the weekend.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Friends With Cars Are Your Main Option – The school is located up on top of a mountain and to reach any businesses or the city you must have a vehicle yourself or hitch a ride with a friend. Average time to city locations is 40 minutes.

5 College Junior

Academics: Amazing Professors – Professors are extremely willing to help and very accomplished. They teach at PUC because they are passionate about what they do. Most professors have their terminal degrees and are very accomplished (You hear stuff like "I decided to buy a helicopter last week..." or "We bought a new Bentley last week"). Also, because of its location, there are many opportunities. Most students take the maximum number of credit hours because there are so many interesting classes (fencing, anyone?). The work ethic is very strong.

College Junior

Greek Life: Nonexistent and Unwanted – There never has been, and never will be, Greek life at PUC. That's the way just about everyone wants it. PUC is small enough that we don't need organized societies to meet people. Lots of extracurricular activities and parties off-campus. No need for "exclusive" organizations.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Each class has more diversity than a state school ten times PUC's size.
