What is your overall opinion of this school?

To me, the things that make Pacific University a home is the people. I have met the most incredible people and found a second family for myself. I come into contact with people from all different walks of life in all different areas of study and I enjoy every minute of it. Not only the students, but also the professors. They are so involved in the work they do and caring for their students, it encourages me every day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

School is okay, nothing spectacular or exciting about the school. Best part about Pacific are the professors. The professors are caring and know their material. Pacific is pretty dry. It's situated in a small town in Oregon with not really much to do around campus. The academics are good enough. The school is pricey though in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hello. I am currently a second year student at Pacific University. I play for the women volleyball team. I am involved in a few different clubs but I devote the majority of my time to athletics and school. My freshman year at Pacific was the best year of my life. I have met life long friends, I have partied, I have explored more cities in the span of one year than ever, and I have laughed more laughs and smiled more smiles. But I believe I got lucky. Pacific does not have much for students to do besides play sports, work out, or lounge around. There are sometimes campus events , but they are quite repetitive and usually based off of students anyway. The food is pretty close to awful, with slim choices, lack of freshness, and overall lack of flavor. The campus is beautiful, but the dorms (especially older ones like Clark and Walter) are quite dingy. Less than half of my showers worked, and to say 'work' is a far stretch from what you and I believe work to be. Overall, to be happy at Pacific, you have to try extremely hard. The class sizes are small and make for good experiences with professors, and the professors are some of the best in their field. Its just difficult to find yourself loving things at this campus especially with the high tuition rates.

Pacific University really makes it feel like you’re at home. The staff and teachers are always there to help you. As a D3 school, they make sure school comes first, but that doesn’t mean they forget your an athlete. The campus is truly beautiful, and the surrounding area is very nice

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it here, it is nice with it's class sizes, and a decently beautiful campus. Not the most beautiful in Oregon, but not bad either. The professors I have had are nice, and accessible, I go in and ask for help when I need it. Additionally, the sports scene is encouraged. The teams are open to anyone with the ability, and the sports facility, Stoller Center, is decked out with top of the line gear, and a gym that is free to anyone who is a student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pacific University looks like a fantastic school until you begin attending. The on-campus housing is liveable but nothing special, the offered food is often inedible and there are very few choices, the tuition is incredibly high and it just doesn't feel worth it. The greek life is a joke, the clubs all seem underfunded and fairly inactive, and the campus life is dull. However, the professors I've had have been above average, they do seem to care about their students and are usually available for help or meetings, and the class sizes are small enough to feel like your professors know you. Overall, I would not recommend Pacific University to any students looking at universities, save yourself the debt and the subpar college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pacific University is a great university. The environment is safe, welcoming, open-minded, and fun. I loved the time I spent at Pacific. The only issue I had with the college is the music program. It's not a bad music program for a regular school, it just didn't have the rigor that I was looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pacific University is a great school! The professors are great and they really care for you as a person. Professors, coaches, and peers are always encouraging each other to succeed. If you are staying on campus, the residence association (R.A.) is excellent. There are many events that are fun and give you an opportunity to meet people. Some examples include: brick painting (for your door), bored games, build-a-bear, tie-dye t-shirts, and food events. The academics are hard but the professors have office hours, and there are many great places to study: the library, study rooms, rooms filled with white boards, and the eating center. The town is small, so if you do not have a car, it is easy to go places. Lots of PokemonGo stops/gyms.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Professors of occupational therapy are incredible! Class sizes are small and stimulating. Fieldwork opportunities are need work, but the coordinator is usually willing to work with the student. Opportunities for interdisciplinary experiences are available.
