This is a very nice school. The people are friendly and welcoming, the teachers accessible, and the campus beautiful. The worship and chapel credit requirements can be a drag, and the school is rather pricey, but scholarships can be found and the people at financial aid are easy to work with and talk to. The food, of course, gets a bit pricey too, but it's much better than your normal college cafeteria food and I have experienced multiple different college's foods. It's a small, private school, though, and isolated (nearest fast food is about half an hour away), so if you're looking for a college with a party life, this probably isn't the best place to go.
It’s a great school to attend and they grave by far the best nursing program in the Bay Area. For the past two years they have had a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX. The people on campus are always really nice and helpful. Although it’s a religious based school no one ever tries to pressure you into their religion.
It's a nice christian school, but in a very rural area. The students are friendly, but if you don't have a car it can be very boring. I don't think that there are enough clubs and activities for the students to participate in. The location is beautiful and the closest food is really good in town, but that is about ten miles away.
I am an incoming Freshman and I have visited the campus two times already. Pacific Union College is surround by so much greenery and looks so peaceful. I believe that because of how relaxing the vibe is on campus, I can really focus on studying and never get distracted. You can tell that all the students are very hard-working and focused on achieving their goals there. The staff members and students around PUC are so genuine and inviting. I cannot wait to attend Pacific Union College this September!

I would recommend to myself that I take every possiblity and used it to its potential. I should have gone on more missions trips, taken more of the fun classes (things like art, sign language, random things...), played more. If possible, I would tell myself to have more fun. Because of the programs at my school, I am able to double major, be in the Honors program, and be pre-med. I would say that I should have spent more time with friends, read more books, and slept more in preparation for coming to college. Working over the summer last year reallly helped, so if I would have worked every summer, that would have been really beneficial. I wish that I had simply lived life to the fullest, because now that I'm in college, I don't really have time. ... Not to say that college isn't fun; that there aren't opportunites to live life here. But because of the structure of my current education, I should have relaxed a little more in high school.
PUC offers a beautiful campus, if not one of the best in the world. The community of friends that you meet and all of the things you will have to learn and keep up to stay here. Its way tougher than most top rated schools.
That it was going to be a struggle to get non federal loans or loans not given by the school
Cafeteria food isn't appealing
It is mostly Seventh-Day Adventist Affiliated, but I know many people who are not SDA and attend PUC and love it. It depends if you are open to new things and not judgemental. Fun people are welcomed at PUC.
Lack of diversity in curriculum
This school is an excellent place to spend your college career.
When talking to friends who've graduated from larger universities, I highlight the fact that because my school's student population was much smaller, it allowed me to be involved in many extracurriculars on-campus. At a big school you have more people to compete with in running for Student Senate seats or applying for on-campus jobs with faculty. I am proud that I was able to hold as many positions as I did as an undergrad, and getting to know my professors as well as I did.
Compared to other schools, the unique thing about my current school is that the community in which the college is based is very close-knit and therefore, the college staff and students are very close. There is so much to do and so much that the school offers spiritually and academically. Since academic excellance is strongly portrayed at this school, there is no tolerance for drugs and alcohol. You will only grow maturely and mentally from this institute.
My classmates are what you would expect of college students; we diverse in every sense of the word: racially, religiously, politically, and in personality. You'll always have people you don't get along with, but there are far fewer of them here than I could have possibly expected; in reality there are only 2 people that I don't want to hang out with much. When I came to visit, people were so friendly. I want to present the same welcoming atmosphere that I was shown to visitors, simply because I want to prove that PUC is the best.
