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.

Campus Quality: Most of the buildings where classes are held are nice but the dorms are a little bit old.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I'd say we are very diverse. Many of us are SDAs but there are also other religions.

Administration: There is a zero tolerance for alcohol. I am a rule follower so I don't know much else.

4 College Senior

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.

Majors: No internships. I would like the opportunity to have an internship for experience. This school could use a few more majors like an LVN program for example.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt insecure when walking around campus at night. I do go running out at the track by myself at night but I have never felt not safe when I go running. The public safety is always there near by and they are always roaming around to make sure that you are okay. There have been people who have stolen some things but that's because people left their belongings out in the open unprotected for a long periods of time but that is very rare.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: This is a christian school and we live in the mountain area kind of on a hill. There are no local bars/club scenes unless you have a car and you go to Napa or to a small local town near by. If you want to do that then you need to have a car. There probably are parties but they are pretty well covered up so that the administration doesn't find out.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: They have everything you need, however it is very pricey. It Everything is close by if you need to go to the store, buy your textbooks or even put gas in your car. However, like I said it's pricey and it's more convenient to go down the hill to St. Helena to get groceries.

5 College Junior

Majors: I didn't necessarily do any intern yet since I am still in college level. However, I had this chance to work for Hospital which is just 10 minutes away from our school (more than 2 years I have been doing this), I worked as a volunteer for Spiritual Care, doing discussions in the recovery center with addicts, non-denominational bible study with anyone at the hospital, and so on. It was a great opportunity and great experience to have. This is a possibility of getting some experience, and other volunteer experinces are also available at the hospital.

4 College Junior

Majors: This program is fairly easy to get in. The only small issue would be to do a lot of writing and reading as the religion major yet taking many science classes at the same time.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am very happy about my major. i would do it again if I have to. My career goal is to become a medical missionary. My concerns about that would be that it is not "certain" which specifically I am going to do and where I will be at later.

5 College Junior

Majors: My major is Religion emphasis in health. I love it since i cannot find this cool combination anywhere else. This gives me a good foundation in religion for the future job related to health and medical areas I am interested in.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Very pleased with the program. Really wouldn't change anything.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I have held many internships at PUC and at various top tiered universities, but I would rather not go into further discussion on this topic.

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

2 College Sophomore

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.
