Overall Experience: Patten was a peaceful and well structured school. The founder (Bebe Patten) set a presence and a standard and no matter how it changes, that spirit will live on the Patten Campus.

Athletics: At Patten, there are only two sports teams, Baseball and Softball. I love sports and part of the reason I am here is because I was on the baseball team. After this year, sports are going to be cut and what will this do for the school's athletic life or athletes attending campus?

Guys & Girls: Great,No Conflict – Because this a Christian university, there are really strict dress codees, which I enjoy because it keeps everything and everyone very comfortable with one another while keeping their academic goals at hand. It is also a campus where everyone knows everybody since it is a small school. Everyone gets along with everyone from what I can see.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Ok but Needs More Variety – The cafeteria has amazing workers that bust their tails to make great food, but there is no variety of fod choices here on the campus. If we have one entree that you don't ;like or enjoy, you will have to eat somewhere else or suffer with the food that you don't enjoy. I would suggest having spcial nights every so often where they serve something different or more in tuned to the students here on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nice and Small – I just really love the size of the school, I've always been at big schools where you don't know everyone. So I like the fact that its small and personal

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Cute Dorms – The dorms are really cute, I saw the outside. I'm not planning on dorming there, I live close.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Small and Personal – I love how patten is such a small personal school where you don't get lost in the giant student body. It seems like everyone knows you personally, you have a name and aren't just a number. And I love the campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Not Too Bad – The financial aid process was okay. However award letters are delivered entirely too late, and if you are not naturally intelligent such as I am, it could be difficult.

3 College Junior

Administration: Inconsistent and Ridiculous – There is a very obvious bias toward particular situations depending on who is involved. Some times things slide right by, other times disproportionate consequences are imposed.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Potentially Dangerous Mostly Safe – Oakland, CA is crime infested for the most part, however Patten University is safe haven and I never really feel like I am in peril or anything.
