3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Pacific Union College prohibits the party life. There is to be no form of alcoholic beverages or drugs taking recreationaly, because chances are you will be expelled. But this does not mean that there aren't things to do. PUC is located on top of a volcano/mountain, so it is far from the city. here the night life is gorgeous; the night sky is painted, and the lights around campus makes it seem like its Christmas time every night! And everyone knows that Christmas is the Best time of the year! PUC also has the "Grind" which is a place where students can hang out, choose from a variety of snacks, drinks, and specialized drinks (coffee,italian sodas, etc) watch TV (more than one mounted) play pool, ping pong, or simply drape across couches. There is also the Gym, where alot of students go to play sports such as basketball or volleyball. Other than that it is quite peaceful up on the hill. A few might dread it but, a majority of the students admire the appeasing ambiance of the college and its location.

Health & Safety: Pacific union is a very big campus, but everyone is very friendly. It is also a small town and everyone knows each other, so any weird activity does not go unnoticed.

Campus Quality: I attend a christian college, so I love the spiritual surroundings and activities. The only bad thing is how expensive this college is. But hey every college is expensive

Campus Food: PUC is a vegetarian friendly school so we do not serve meat at all. It has it's perks because it gives a variety of different types of foods. However, because it is a vegetarian school it is a hard to get in the meat fill if you are not (like I am not a vegetarian) and the food after a while becomes tiresome.

Majors: Well this is a relatively new program here at Pacific Union College and one that I'm happy to be a part of. The Political Science major has been something that I had been hoping would be added on to the school ever since my freshmen year. Unfortunately, at the time that they did not have the program so I decided to declare as a business major. It was a very informing major however I did not like it at all. So when they finally added the political science major I jumped ship and I have loved it ever since. If I could do it all over again I would definitely do it. I would like to become a Lawyer and I'm hoping that this career choice will help me out in the long run. No concerns at this point, if I did have any it would be just to get good grades and pass all my classes.

Administration: Pacific Union College is a Seventh Day Adventist private school which means they are a private Christian college. This translates that they uphold certain rules and regulations. Moreover, if you do participate in drinking whether under or overaged, drugs, etc... you will get caught and there will be punishments are detailed in the Student Handbook. They are rather strict about these sorts of activities on the college campus.

Majors: The Process of getting into the nursing program is relatively challenging. However if the student is determined and has good studying discipline is will defiantly be possible

Weather: It is hot most of the time. During the winter it can get very cold during the night, but its so beautiful you don't mind.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am very happy. If I could do it all over again I would take a computer class on excel in high school, They use a lot of excel for a lot of the assignments.

Majors: The process includes making an appointment with an adviser and discussing why you want to be in this major. There are not really abnormal process to the application. Tips would be to do great in math, and make sure this is really what you want to do.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the program I am in. The advisers and classes are great, they really want you to succeed here which is great. The workload can be overwhelming but the teachers are great with spacing out the test.

Campus Quality: The spiritual life on campus is pretty amazing. There are different worship programs held that most students attend. When I'm at school I feel like I'm home and all my friends are really family. I love the openness of the people here and how accepting they are.

Health & Safety: I never feel unsafe when I'm on PUC's campus. There are campus police patrolling the campus at all times and desk workers in the dorm that you can contact if something goes wrong. I trust the people at the school and have never felt the need to be anxious or worried when at school.

1 College Senior

Administration: Campus police are pretty strict about drinking regardless of whether you are of age or not. The school is affiliated with a christian church so they do not tolerate any drinking or drug use. The dorms are not co-ed and you can not have people of the opposite sex in your room.

Campus Food: The food itself is pretty good but the options are limited so it is easy to get tired of the food. There is a market where you can buy your own food to cook if you don't want to eat in the cafeteria or the deli.

Diversity: Our campus embraces diversity, whether it be people of different ethnic backgrounds, academic interests, and economic status. PUC is willing to work with everybody and help all potential and current students succeed. Our school is a Seventh-day Adventist school, but I believe we embrace people of other faiths because it is our opportunity to witness to them.
