Health & Safety: I always feel safe walking across the campus at night. It is well lit and security is very close if needed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are great. Intro classes can be large, but as it gets more specialized, the classes get smaller.

Campus Housing: The accommodation is awesome. Provides everything you need in our own space.

Athletics: I only give this specific rating versus "it's the worse", due to the school spirit of the students and staff of this school. Some of the school teams are not the best, but people of the Pacific community are very supportive of the varsity teams, which bumps up the athletics ratings for Pacific. However the athletic facilities of this university is astonishing. Half of the equipment in the exercise room is broken and a quarter of the "functioning" machines would be considered a safety hazard in a standard gym. It is really terrifying since many students do not have an idea on what they are doing when it comes to lifting weights. I knew five different cases of people receiving ring worm from the gym's carpet since many people stretch and do core exercises on it. There have been cases of pink eye. What blows many people's minds is the fact that the student population keeps growing and no new investments are put into the student athletic facility to accommodate to the increasing rate of the student population. For how much prestige this university has on its health professions programs, it would make sense for the school to put some money to refurbish the facility.

Health & Safety: Our Campus Public Safety officers are really great. There are a few places on campus that get kind of dark at night/aren't super well lit, and a CPS officer will walk you to your car or res hall if you feel uncomfortable. Our Wellness Center is super proactive with preventative measures against assault and relationship violence.

Campus Housing: I was an RA for two years, so I'm a little biased about housing/res life. The best halls are upperclassman halls (Burlingham, Gilbert, and Vandervelden) on the north side. But I know plenty of sophomores that were able to get onto north side. Our freshman/underclassman halls are still fine, they're just a lot older and could use some updating. Hall community is really important to Pacific, so we're always doing programs and hall improvements to make it the best that it can be. The RAs are really related and genuinely care about what they do.

Greek Life: I'm the president of one of our sororities, so I can only speak from Greek experience, but I feel that our Greek Life is really close-knit and awesome. None of us are national chapters, so we only exist on this campus. That makes it easier to change policies and make things better without national pressure to act a certain way or do certain things. There are extremely involved sororities on campus, but the fraternities don't do a whole lot. We don't have some of the benefits that nationals do (gigantic budgets, separate housing, etc.) but that makes it easier for Greeks not to be cliquey.

Overall Experience: Pacific is the best community I've ever been a part of. It is so easy to get involved (actually, it's really hard NOT to get involved... it just sort of happens) and the vast majority of students are hardworking, care about their education, and make the experience really great. I would absolutely choose Pacific again. The only thing I would say isn't the very best thing ever is the cost. Otherwise, the professors are amazing, and you get an actual real relationship with the professors here because of how small the school is. I don't love Forest Grove itself, but the town really loves Pacific, and the surrounding businesses have a lot of discounts for us.
