Greek Life: no one really gets involved

Athletics: its good but not the best

Health & Safety: The neighborhood is a little dangerous, but campus safety works hard to keep us secure. The gate system works well and there are officers available to walk students back from night classes if they don't feel safe.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed both my courses and professors. Even when I am not fond of the subject, I have somehow managed to enjoy every course that I've taken.

Overall Experience: The career center is constantly updating the student body on new job, internship, and career opportunities. My work experience has been great, and the school has been a big part oh that.

Campus Housing: I have heard of mishaps and issue with housing because it is very old, but I personally have had a really great experience living on campus and really enjoy the community as well as the convenience.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not personally an athlete and rarely attended sports events before coming to college, but the Student Life office encourages a lot of school spirit and support, so I have actually attended( and surprisingly have also enjoyed) more games in the past two years than ever before in my life. The school spirit is well balance through most of the sports, but our school is especially proud of our water sports, specifically our swim team which has possibly the highest popularity and support from the student body. I'm not an expert, but I would say that athletics are a fairly big deal.

Overall Experience: This particular school has been essential in both my academic and character growth. The classes are engaging and professors are open and helpful. There is an open door policy that makes professors and other faculty member very accessible.

The campus is beautiful and comforting, and the community is very tight-knit. I have made some of my best friends at Fresno Pacific, and the university's environment really encourages and nurtures deep and lasting relationships.

I would not choose any other college even if I could do it all over again. This was definitely the right university for me, and I hope to see many more people choosing it in the future.

Overall Experience: I believe attending Fresno Pacific University has been a great experience for the first semester of my first year of college. It has taught me to value the schoolwork that is given from the teacher. Also, I should be aware of the amount of sleep I get every night so I be ready for class the next morning. I should even consider joining in a club or extra curriculum to meet new people. People at Fresno Pacific University tends to be more friendly than others when joining a club so I became involved. Moreover, it has been an excellent way of helping me in college with a new lifestyle as a beginner in college.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this place honestly. The friendships you create are real and authentic and it is so hard not to like anyone or not have at least one friend. The guys are not stuck up. Some are conceited but not stuck up. In fact, the most attractive ones are quick to talk to you and just try and be your friend. There are also a lot of foreign guys if you're into that (I am so I noticed). They also make attempts to talk to you and their accents are swoon-worthy.

The professors are amazing and quite lenient and very amazing. The classes do require effort, some more or less, all depending on the teacher. Overall a great fit for me and anyone looking for kind people.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is amazing because the professors truly care about the students and want a one on one interaction.

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.

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.

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.
