3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Social life isn't the best but the academics are there.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live off campus and I do enjoy it. I truly feel like an adult since I have the worries of bills (rent, utility, internet & cable, trash, etc.) I regret how I am unable to see my friends often. However I enjoy being able to have a place where I am not bothered by various peoples (just my roommates). It is cheaper than living on campus and can be a good life lesson.

Party Scene: I don't party often and if I do, I go for the social interactions. The parties I have attended have not been crazy like the movies. It's simply beer pong, dancing, talking, and the occasional people who do PDA.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The food is great. Once in a while these restaurants will be a hit or miss. Each varies in their own uniqueness in the idea of being small bakery like Maggie's buns, a nice-date-like eat-in like Pac Thai, or a simple grab like Tyson's Pub-n-Grub.

Administration: Compared to larger schools, Pacific University does a fantastic job at keeping the students safe. Of course there are some problems that is out of the university's control, but they do their best to update students. The security officers are kind and helpful. They picked me up and drove me around after a surgery, unlocked the dorms/buildings multiple time with no hassle, and they walk around which displays their availability to be of assistance. Overall I think the campus security officers are amazing.

Campus Food: I don't eat on campus anymore but when I did, I thought the food was decent. I didn't mind that the food was repetitive or unfamiliar. I definitely hated the meal plan since I didn't even use more of the meals and didn't truly understand how to use the meal plan until the year was over. Recently they have changed a lot of the options and I do not like it. A student cannot customize their stir fry anymore which was one of the best places to go. I use to work with the cafeteria last year and they are terrible at training, but I got the hang of it and became a successful stir fry girl. I am no longer working there and I hate how the stir fry is not customized anymore. I cook at home so I can't really say too much about the current state of the cafeteria. However I heard people hate it, are getting sick, and say it is unsanitary.

Scholarships: It was difficult since I had to get my parent's signature. She forgot to sign one part of the paperwork so the financial office would not accept it. We had to fax the papers to Hawai'i which was troublesome for my mom. Getting all the information requirements was hard enough since she isn't use to it. The people at the office were very helpful and kind but it's still nerve-wracking for someone who is new and unfamiliar with all the questions they ask.

Campus Housing: Living on campus was interesting. I lived in an old dorm (Clark Hall) and shared a four bedroom with two girls. The room was not the best quality in the world, definitely not hotel status, but I thought it was fine. One of my roommates ended up moving into another room with her friend so I share a huge room with one other girl. She wasn't the cleanest person and she sexiled me a lot. However it didn't bother me that much because I would be out in the hallways talking with friends or be outside on the beautiful campus. I did have an issue with her locking the room door, but I learned that my dorm friends were generally trustworthy. People looked out for one another which was unexpected for me. Later on I was able to get into the upperclassmen dorms which was much better living quality. Overall living on campus is better in the idea that class is closer and friends are more available (barely see anyone living off campus). The downfall would be the shard and thus slow internet, some inconsiderate neighbors/students, and having to pay a shared fee for dorm damages.

Greek Life: Most people in Greek life are really cheerful and overwhelmingly happy.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are chill unless you eat their ice cream repeatedly and do not apologize.

Off-Campus Dining: There are not a lot of restaurants off campus. The ones I like to go to are FG sushi because they have a great value for lunch they have $5.50 bento meal that comes with rice, teriyaki chicken, and a phenomenal house salad. And it's only 2 minutes from campus. Maggie's buns can be overwhelming if you have allergies such as gluten, nuts, dairy, and eggs because that's all they have and almost all their options have at least one of those in it. A popular place to go to is PAC Thai it has a lot of options that is sensitive to allergies and dietary restrictions. Their taste is excellent and their prices aren't that bad. Sadly, they don't have a student discount like Maggie's.They have Mexican restaurants and 1910 Main but those aren't as popular as FG sushi, PAC Thai, or Maggie's.

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorm you live in. Obviously Cascade is really nice because it's new and it has A/C and really nice bathrooms. But if you want more room going to McCormick is wonderful. The upper class men housing is nice especially Gilbert it almost looks like a hotel and it's eco friendly.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many off-campus options for dining. I enjoy most of them.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Our school has a fair administration that isn't too strict.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a lot of financial aid from my school that I really needed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is average. There is a very limited variety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is average. There is a brand new residence hall.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is very good. There is a very nice variety of ethnic foods. The cost is afforable for college students and the student discounts help sometimes. There are a lot of good places to check out, but everyone needs to discover that on their own.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Campus Police do their job very well and they are very kind. If there is a problem CPS will address it as soon as possible and try to accomodate each party while enforcing the rules.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wasn?t awarded much financial aid and the whole process was a hassle. There was a lot of confusion. If there is any way the university can take into account the cost of living in each state for an incoming student?s financial aid, that would be very helpful.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The menu of the University Center has no variety and the way the food is cooked is unsanitary and unhealthy. There is hardly any taste in the food sometimes and other times we need to look for flies and hair in our soup. Sometimes we even have rotten produce being served to us. There needs to be more variety of restaurants on campus or restaurants that take flex dollars.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The amount of money we pay for housing and food is too much money for what we get. Either housing prices need to decrease in price or housing and food need to improve drastically. The social atmosphere is amazing here. There are never any problems between the student body.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall it's good. Getting an appointment with the health center is tricky when you're sick immediately. It's great for athletes. There are a lot of perks that students don't utilize.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: 1 fraternity and a few sororities. Nothing special except during rush week.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Gym is small for the student body size. Check out for equipment is limited, facility use is limited. I hear storage is a big problem so expansion is needed. We just got a new stadium awning for the football field so it's named after the people that footed the bill but should have gone to something else that was needed more.
