4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Surprisingly, there are a lot of dining options in Stockton, if you know where to look. There are a lot of ethnic options, plenty of small, family-run, or hole-in-the-wall places.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The buildings at Pacific are brick and ivy-covered, making it look like you're on the east coast. The UC is one of the newest buildings on campus, and it's very nice and eco-friendly. Some of the buildings and residence halls are really old, but I think that gives them character. The school is pretty good about updating the facilities and fixing anything that is broken or old.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Some Greek organizations have houses, which aren't run down.

4 College Senior

Academics: In the University of the Pacific, there are a variety of study areas that students can use, such as the library and certain designated classrooms.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: If you want to drink alcohol in the University Center, you have to show proof that you are 21-years-old or over in order to do so. Other than that, the school makes sure that the alcohol is dispensed only where it should be dispensed on campus.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I mean, I met my boyfriend of 4 years on this campus, so I say it's pretty good. Most people I know are in relationships with other people on campus, and lots of flirting and casual hooking up goes on. Since it's a private school, lots of guys are smart and have some money, so that can be a plus for some people.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's Stockton, so it's not the most affluent or safe place to be, but there are lots of good places to eat around and near campus, there is a mall, Target, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc. within short driving distance, and we have pretty good minor league sports teams. But be prepared for people to make fun of you for living in Stockton.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: We have a pub in campus, but it's wine and beer only, with a 3 drink limit. Lots of drinking and partying goes on in the dorms and fraternity houses. Students looking to be accepted or who want to look cool (and who want to join a Greek organization) frequently go to parties, and a lot of them end up looking like drunk idiots.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There's been assault scandals on campus, and the administration in terrible at handling them.

2 College Senior

Athletics: The biggest sports on campus are basketball and water polo (we don't have football), but even then the games are not always well-attended.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: People complain about how strict or mean the officers and administrators can be, but most people don't realize that they're just looking out for our safety.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good small school, good support system.

Campus Dining: It takes time to learn how not to eat the same 3 meals, or it did for me. Once you know what you like and don't like it gets easier.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good small school with excellent support. Expensive but hopefully worth the 4 year guarantee.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If you use the Career center they can help to an extent but no one can guarantee anything. I did an internship through the school for graduation but they may cut that.

3 College Senior

Athletics: This is not a big sports school. Water Polo and Basketball are the 2 most popular but there's no football.

3 College Senior

Majors: Pacific is cutting back on majors so while most majors are still being offered double check to ensure what you want will be there.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority but know people who are and they enjoy them.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: People just do what they want, there aren't any huge problems. Just be an adult.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is okay with off-campus housing, but again, this place is Stockton. It's dangerous to live out there, even if the housing prices are super small.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is strict, but that is only because the area is super dangerous.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is beautiful. I love it here and would definitely go again if I had an extra 200 grand.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The dining off campus is great, but the surrounding areas are a bit dangerous.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports here is great, but I'm not too much into sports.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are clean and spacious. The food is great! I don't really have any problems with this place.
