Administration: Don't Get Caught – The school can be pretty strict when they catch you violating the student handbook, so just don't get caught. Its not like they go out of their way to catch you, don't advertise.

Scholarships: Smooth Sailing – The financial process is very smooth sailing. You submit your FAFSA and your PUC application for aid, they will promptly send you your initial package.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Great Advisots – One of the benefits of going to a small liberal arts college like PUC is the personal attention you receive from your advisors and teachers. PUC's advisors go above and beyond to help you get acclimated to college life and succeed in your goals.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Believe it or not, those pictures of students studying under trees on an overly green lawn... that's actually what students here do.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not Huge – Nightlife around PUC isn't huge, but students often make weekend trips to enjoy the nightlife in other locations.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Great Restaurant Options – Pretty much every restaurant in St. Helena is a distinctive and amazing Napa Valley dining experience. The prices are not bad, considering the high quality of food you are getting.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Study Abroad for Some Cross Cultural Experiences – The majority of students at PUC study abroad at some point during college. You should too. Every summer, PUC offers nearly a dozen different trips abroad for college credit. PUC also has affiliations to study abroad with over a dozen schools around the world including Japan, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Korea, Germany, France, Switzerland, England, etc.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academics + Students = Optimal Experience – PUC has awesome academics and is a one-way ticket to prestigious grad schools. That, combined with the amazing people you interact with on a daily basis, makes the PUC experience (at the risk of sounding cliche) one of a kind.

College Junior

Greek Life: No Official Greek Clubs – PUC does not have any active fraternities or sororities. The girls still wear sexy Lilly Pulitzer though.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Do It If You Want. Both drugs and liquor is available if you want it at PUC, but neither is visible and the school does enforce its substance abuse policy if it finds out.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Complete Safety – A small, beautiful and vaguely remote location makes PUC's campus entirely safe for students. Locking dorm doors is generally unnecessary but a good idea in case you have extremely bad luck and become a target of the extremely rare petty thief who will be promptly caught. Sexual assault is unheard of on campus and drinking/drugs are under the rader... do them if you want but they are not ubiquitous.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Pioneer Pete! Pioneer Pete is our mascot and he can be seen at games leading student's in enthusiastic cheers for our various athletic teams.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Beautiful Restaurants – Its just a very short drive to St. Helena which has some of the world's best restaurants at extremely affordable prices... impossible to go hungry.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Guaranteed for Four Years – The process is simple and straightforward. Most of the academic scholarships come with a four year guarantee which helps ease your mind as you plan beyond your first couple of years.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Climbing Wall Is Awesome – The climbing wall at the gym is an amazing place to workout.

Administration: Strikes a Fine Balance – It all depends how it goes down. The Vice President for Student Life is Lisa Paulson and she's a bitch, as is Dean Kurtz of Newton Hall... the others involved are generally very helpful though.

Health & Safety: Super Safe Campus – The biggest "crimes" that happen here are people reporting items missing from their dorm rooms when they leave their doors open for extended periods of time.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love This Place – Okay, the location is amazing, but its the people that make it awesome. The people you live with in the dorms and go to school with couldn't be better.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Huge Intramural Program – PUC has a huge intramural program in addition to the Pioneers Varsity Athletics. They play a huge number of sports and there's always a few varsity leagues active during any given time of the year.

Guys & Girls: Hotties All Around – There are a lot of extremely attractive individuals going to school here. Students are also generally well off enough to have money to blow on their looks and clothes.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse School – I'm sitting in a room with asian, white-American, Filipino and european people.

5 College Junior

Majors: Love My Program Profs – The professors are very intelligent and willing to assist you in pursuing your degree. Really can't ask for me.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Get Ready for the Fountain – Tradition at PUC stipulates that every student be thrown in the fountain in front of Paulin Hall by their friends on their birthday. Its a harmless, fun tradition that's been going on for a while. Be ready.
