3 College Freshman

Administration: The school's rule are straight forward and easy to abide with.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I just wish they gave out more grants to students who need it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It honestly depends on your personal preferences.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of food places, if you don't mind a timely drive/carpool. Make a date out of it. Or even a road trip if you don't mind the drive to San Francisco. St. Helena is the cutest spot for cool cuisines. Napa has the fast food joints and the more commercial restaurants. Santa Rosa is the closest thing you'll find to that "big" city vibe, so that is where you'll find more diverse places to dine.

Party Scene: Srsly, "what parties?!" This is an Adventist college. In the middle of nowhere California. And good luck finding anyone on this campus that isn't a complete stick in the mud. No one lets loose like that.

1 College Junior

Administration: They treat you like a child: curfews... 11 o clock check ins every night, it's ridiculous. And when I say check ins, I mean the RAs open your door with their annoying master key, and look in your room to make sure you're there, so they can sign you into their attendance system app thing. And if you're not, THEY COME BACK - at 3am! - with a flashlight. Also you get pinks (referalls) when you break curfew. No staying out all night until you're over 21, no boys in girls dorms, no girls in boys dorms except in the lobbies (and the opposite sex gets kicked out at 12).

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process was pretty smooth. The school gives out scholarships, but considering the cost of tuition, they might as well not be giving you anything (it's honestly not even worth it).

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The Dining Commons and The Grind LOOK awesome. They are awesome to sit down in and snack. They have some good snacks too, however most are health foods or vegan products. Not a lot of variety when it comes to eating styles and cultures. The pizza and the pastas are usually the best thing at the Dining Commons. STAY AWAY FROM THE "HOT DOGS" AND THE "BURGERS". Pretty much just stay away from all the atrocious meat parodies they think is okay to serve.

Campus Housing: The campus is beautiful. You wake up the birds chirping, and a fresh feeling in the air. The social life on campus is laid back and chill. The people are friendly and genuine. However, since the campus is on a hill, being without a car makes it a challenge to leave and go anywhere remotely populated/commercial.

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't a lot of options for off-campus housing. Most of them are reserved for married students or upper classmen.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants in St. Helena are great! Most of them are pricey because of the area, but the food has always been delicious! I don't know if any of them have student discounts, they don't advertise that.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had any issues with the strictness of campus. The rules are there for good reasons and they make sense.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: We do more social events than parties. I'm not big in partying so it doesn't make a difference to me.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to receive around 12,000 dollars in scholarships directly from the school. That was great, because tuition is high. I still have to search for other financial aid though, because it's not enough to fully cover and I don't want to be a burden on my parents.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meal plan is super expensive, for not that great quality of food. Sometimes, the meals they make are super off and weird. Most of the time, meals are okay. I would suggest, lower the cost and find new recipes that people like! I really liked it when they served smoothies.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living in the dorm. Laundry is rather expensive, it would be nicer if it was cheaper. Also, the rooms are a bit small, but it's doable. I had great RA's and the dean is awesome!

Athletics: PUC does not focus on athletics. Intramurals are far more popular and encouraged.

Off-Campus Housing: If you live off campus make sure you have a car, unless you live in Brookside.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Food in Napa Valley is great. There's a variety of food for everyone's taste buds.

3 College Junior

Administration: PUC is a private Christian college. The rules are made with that mentality and many students don't share that mentality.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Our family makes too much to qualify for financial aid but not enough to pay for tuition comfortably.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: It's really not that healthy, even if it's vegetarian.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to meet people. You get to know the people in your dorm, classes, and clubs easier.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I didn't live off campus, but heard it was ok
