4 College Junior

Overall Experience: One's experience at Fresno Pacific is often defined how it is approached. If you go in with a great attitude, you're experience will be great and vice versa. There are lots of opportunities to have a great time amidst nights of studying. be careful about who you tell your business to because it's a small campus, and more people than you'll want will get into it. Sometimes things will be frustrating, just like any other place, but it's easy to find great people to build lasting relationships with.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is okay. The area surrounding the campus is not the very best part of town so some people may feel uncomfortable. However, there are many different options from fast food to ethnic food.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is pretty good. There are certain aspects of the administration that are hard to deal with which are primarily the academic side, however the residence side is great. Resident Directors are great and really get to know you. They want to help you and be available to you.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarships offered are good and very helpful. They are definitely necessary unless you have a lot of financial aid from the government or can afford a $35,000 private school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a coffee shop on campus that has good options for snack foods and decent pastries. The coffee is Starbucks which is fantastic.

Then there's the caf....

The food is good initially and probably good compared to other cafeterias. There are very limited healthy options. They are the same every day which makes it very difficult for someone who is trying to eat healthy, but wants something different than humus and a salad every single day.

The food that is prepared is typically bland and if anything it is over salted. It is unappetizing to the eye and to the palate. Though I was required by scholarship to pay for the full meal plan I rarely ever ate in the cafeteria.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman housing for girls is fantastic. Girls have their own bathroom that they only share with their roommates which makes the process of transitioning much easier. The RA's that live on the floor are fantastic with incorporating the girls into the campus life. The campus is small which means living areas are close to everything from the library, pool and gym to the classes, cafeteria and multiple lounge/study areas. Cost is a little high, but there are plenty of scholarships available and there are many amenities. The housing process is a little confusing after the Freshman year. It is a little jumbled and slightly unorganized. Social atmosphere is okay. There are some cliques, but no more than expected on a small campus.

Off-Campus Housing: I am not old enough for off campus housing, but I have heard its expensive.There are local apartments but a lot have trouble with gangs.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: HORRIBLE. There is nothing. May as well just go to a house party, you will be caught on campus. Once again, doesn't feel like you're at college at all. Mistakes are supposed to be made, we arent all supposed to be saints.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing special about the surrounding restaurants, its what you need when you don't want cafeteria food. But it does get expensive because going out tends to be often since the cafeteria isn't great.

2 College Freshman

Administration: It depends how you see it. It is very strict but sometimes thats good. However, visitation hours are so strict and its hard because sometimes you just want to watch a movie with you boyfriend if you don't have class the next day. Feels like your at home with parents, not college sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its okay, I am stabilized by the university's financial aid.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have had so many problems with this food. I am highly allergic to tree nuts. I was pouring fruit loops one time and found numerous almonds and walnuts in the cereal. Its there because the staff didn't clean out the cereal dispenser before pouring the new one in. Thus, leaving stuff from previous cereal in there. I could have had an allergic reaction and had to go to the hospital. I shouldn't have to check if my fruit loops has almonds in it! It is so unsanitary. The silverware and plates have crud still on them sometimes even after being washed. Its disgusting.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: A lot of the housing is old and run down. A lot of housing assignments were moved around and priority did not go to athletes. So late practices are held, the cafeteria is not open and underclassmen athletes are left with no kitchen to cook a healthy dinner. East Hall is by far the best, but is primarily freshman girls and now faculty housing. So the studetns once again get the old housing such as Stras and Krause.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Great healthy food options plus there is a Starbucks on site.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay. The school it self makes living there more beneficial because the such is in a not so good area of Fresno. However, the security is top notch.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: around the school is in the ghetto. You would have to drive at least 10 minutes to get to a better area

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party like a crazy person however I like to go to the bars and socialize. Great bars and nice people

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I am from the area so getting around is easy. It is probably at 10-15 minute drive to get to the nicer part of Fresno.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school help me out tremendously. The individual is responsible to look into the free money. It is out there, you just have to be willing to ask about it.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I dont know much about it but I have only heard amazing things about off campus housing.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I think that the school is close enough to all the best places to dine.

Administration: I do not know much about the administration on the main campus.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I am still dealing with financial aid. I can not figure out how to get anyone to reply back to me. They drag out this proess and its awful.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I am not in the party scene so I have absolutely no clue. I do not live in the same town as my school.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I dont know much about meal plans. I am at a satellite campus so we do not have meal plans or anything like that.
