4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I enjoyed my major. It was difficult and challenging but I know that when I enter medical school all of this hard work will pay off. They have provided me a good foundation for my career.

Majors: I got my B.S. in Biology and going into medicine. I thought that getting into the Biology program was not hard at all. All the faculty were very friendly and were willing to help me me out whenever I needed help.

Guys & Girls: Students are really smart and outgoing. Its realy easy to just go up tonsomeoneyou have never met and spark up a conversation. Relationships are really hard to get in to themselves at the school. Most guys and girls are looking for hookups. There are a few stusents are extremely religious who believe in abstinance untill marriage so those studenta are more prone to stick together

Weather: The weather on most fall and spring days are clear skies with a few clouds. During the winter there is a lot of variability; however, seeing as the weather here is suppose to be a rainy sort, it is quite sufficient to expectations.

Campus Quality: Most of the facilities are old and are in need of major renovation. Such as the weight room and the gym, even for a school of only 1,600 students, the weight room is not sufficient to take care of the needs of exercise hungry students.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is fairly well set up, it is cheap and there are a sufficient amount of parking spaces for the amount of students that bring up cars to campus.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Very reliable and fast in speed. Although one can't access the printer through one's own laptop through the wireless connection, one can easily print through the school's computers.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Beautiful scenery of wineries. Nice atmosphere surrounded by nature. Air quality is great.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some professors are not so skilled at teaching, although the class materials are nonetheless quite challenging. The workload is great, but manageable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Pacific Union has a really well-defined and constructed pre-professional programs for dentistry, pharmacy, and medical. Hence, it offers a variety of classes that are very suitable for preparing students to further attend medical graduate schools in the future.

4 College Junior

Weather: Generally, it is fair thru the year with some hot days as normal during summertime and some cold days as normal in winter season.

Transportation: Transportation is, expensive, and only in some seasons. Not transportation to nearer town or city but only to the airport.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They are comfortable enough however since bathroom is not inside the dorm I live I won't rate the dorm not even an A minus.

4 College Junior

Academics: I like the academic program. It is definately not easy classes; however they seem to prepare the students well for the real world. The Teaching and Learning Center we have helps the studnets having difficulties, and students are generally very kind to help each other.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my major which is Religion:emphasis in health. This is a cool combination i could not find anywhere else. This gives me a great opportunity to know both for my future goal: to be a medical missionary. The workload is not that easy, it is actually hard yet manageable-with science classes and religion classes. Facilities are not bad; I have no complaints. Job opportunities are not that great; most jobs are already taken. So it is good to know where to apply first and do so ahead of time.

Off-Campus Dining: There are good restuarants with good quality food and excellent taste-of course with student discounts. However, it is a bit pricey and the location is not close enough for students without cars. Best places to check out: Guini's sandwhiches, Gillwoods, Thai Restaurant, Checkers, ....

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I would say living off campus is actually a good option. Since those people do not have to pay a certain amount of money to the caf each quarter and get much cheaper food, it is a great advantage. Also since the off campus houses are not too far away, the distance is not bad as well. The cost is not that expensive. And I think it is always not so difficult to find a place to live.

Party Scene: There is not much as far as bars and clubs. But the school is right in the heart of wine country so there is places near by that you can drive to. Nothing much like that for 18 and older.

5 College Junior

Local Area: I love the atmosphere it is so beautiful! It's the Napa Valley so it's a nice area, so green and lovely season colors. It's therapy to the soul by just the sight of it:)

Technology: I feel like there are always enough computers for people when they need them. There are multiple locations with computer labs so that is good

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It is okay. They serve vegetarian meals which is good for some people but not for others. Sometimes the food is greasy or just not all that good. They have a salad bar though and it is very nice.

Campus Food: There are only two places to dine on campus. Since it's somewhat of a small school it balances out with the amount of students that go here. I do get tired of the food on campus since it's repetition and they mostly serve the same stuff. The dining prices are somewhat pricey but your meal plan can cover mostly anything you want in the cafe. You just need to rationalize your options and the amount that you are paying for your meal so that you won't go over your balance. There is a place called the "Grind," which reminds me of a Starbucks. It's the place where all the students come to get coffee and energize themselves from the gruesome work throughout the day.

3 College Junior

Weather: Well since it's Northern California, it can be a slight bit colder during the winter season and there are chances that it might snow. I noticed it rains a lot up in the mountains. Once spring and winter time come, the weather turns out to be beautiful and sunny.

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aid, from the FAFSA and for my GPA. My adviser was reach able and made sure that I was on top of the my forms so that I could receive all the money for school. I thought it was going to be a hassle but unfortunately it was not bad. I worried less because of the work my adviser was doing for me to get my money in order. Communication is key to understanding where you are in your college finances, so there will not be any surprises that you don't know about.

4 College Junior

Academics: My major is physician assistant and respiratory therapy. I reason why I like this program is because of the many opportunities that I will have when I graduate from school. I already have a huge interest into maybe attending Loma Linda University allied health program. I'm already making connections to go there. My adviser has been so helpful with my classes and the direction I need to go in order be competitive once I apply for the allied health program. There are so many opportunities to do internships since there is a hospital currently close by that where you can volunteer and get exposure in your perspective field.
