College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live with relatives, which is how I got off-campus housing. However, I can speak for the neighborhood and say it is probably one of the safest areas I have ever lived in. I cannot speak for availability, cost, or parking though since I have no idea about that.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I am amazed at how many options Pacific students have off campus. Many of the shops offer student discounts as well. You get a lot of bang for your buck, which is great for a college student budget. Some of the options include Pizza Shmizza, Maggie's Buns, a little Thai restaurant, FG sushi, Domino's, some Mexican and Chinese restaurants, a McDonalds and a Jack in the Box are also fairly close. Plus, we have a Starbucks on campus and a Dutch Bro's off campus. I know that at least two of these places will deliver straight to your dorms.

4 College Junior

Administration: Campus security is friendly and has a relationship with both students and staff. I don't live on-campus so I can't speak for strictness of dorm policy, but everything is fairly relaxed. However, there is a new no smoking rule going into effect I hear they will be implementing pretty strictly.

College Junior

Party Scene: I live off campus, so I have never had a need or desire to go to campus on the weekends.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The reason I chose Pacific was because of the financial aid options. They have academic and merit based scholarships, the scholarship competition, and even need-based. The financial aid office staff are very helpful and willing to meet with students to suggest scholarships and other forms of funding available to them.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The meal plans have been changed to all you can eat, but the food can get pretty boring, pretty fast. However, it's not a problem because there are grocery stores within walking distance, multiple pizza places that deliver to the dorms, really good Mexican, Thai, and Japanese restaurants in addition to cafes and grills. There are plenty of really good food options within walking distance of campus.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but everyone I have talked to about the dorms have seemed pretty happy with them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to live off campus due to the restriction on living on campus for a certain number of years, but my friends who do live off campus say it's not bad.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: In my experience, I have never seen so many different places that you could go to straight from campus. You have Pizza Schmizza, Taqueria Corona, The King's Head Pub, and so many other great places.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration works hard to do what is best for the general student body, and they do a great job.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have not been to many parties, but from what I have heard from friends - for a small private school, they are quite good.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is pretty much as straightforward as it gets - the reasoning behind me saying it's okay is that it's very hard to contest to get more financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food could be much better - there is often too much flavoring/seasoning added to things, and the meat is most of the time somewhat questionable. I prefer the food this year to last year, yet there were burritos/quesadillas that could be bought in the student store - much nicer to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are alright, meaning that they are close to classes but are relatively small for what they cost. As students progress in time their time spent at Pacific, they are able to get into better dorms, such as Gilbert hall, where I currently reside. Gilbert is much more spacious and nicer to live in, but should be accessible at the beginning of a student's stay at Pacific.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I live at home so I have it easy when it comes to food and things like that. There are plenty of different types of houses around the university and there is so much parking everywhere it's unreal.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different options for food as far as cultures go. There is a Thai restaurant right outside of one of the dorm halls and there are pizza places right next to sushi places etc..

3 College Freshman

Administration: Our campus is really strict when it comes to underage drinking and drinking in the dorms, however it is not as strict when it comes to parking. I park in the parking lots daily without a parking pass and have never even got a warning.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't have to do a whole lot. I was right on the cusp of getting a $19,500 annual scholarship versus a $15,000 one and I had to go through a little process for that, but other than that it was a fairly easy project!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are great because many of the student respect those of us who don't drink and are okay with us hanging out at a party sober.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Because I live off campus I hardly ever eat on campus, but when I do it is okay tasting. Not all of the food is amazing, but most of it is alright.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't actually live on campus but I rated it as okay because I have to live at home with my parents. I don't get any sentiments of independence because of this.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't extremely good or bad things about them. They are just decent places to live in the last couple years of college.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We're located downtown in a small, college town so there isn't too many options on this main street. The few options there are are very mainstream or expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There have been many attempts lately to have students meeting with the administration to talk about our needs rather than them just coming with things they think we might or might not actually need. It's been nice to put our own ideas out there, now let's hope they actually listen.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The people that work in the financial aid office are very friendly and are always willing to answer questions. It's very easy to just apply, even if you think there's only a small chance you might get the scholarship.
