What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a small campus, with small student to teacher ratios and small studying rooms in the library. But, boy does it have a major influence on you're everyday decisions. When you tell people you attend the University of the Pacific, people gasp and say "Wow, you must be so smart". I must admit, it makes me feel pretty good to hear that, especially after I just got a C+ on my Bio 51 class. Every time I am offered to go to a party, drink alcohol or do recreational drugs, I always stop and think "Is this why I came to college? For a little fun here and there? Or did I come so people can continue to gasp when I say I graduated with a BS at the University of the Pacific". The school does it all; keeps you in check, makes people look at you in amazement, offers internships by your junior year and honestly gives a good amount in grants!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like this school is very underrated. It is an outstanding university, but people often dismiss it because it is located in the notorious Stockton, California. I am from Stockton and can tell you from experience that it is really not as bad as it is perceived. And living on campus I feel completely safe! The academics are top notch and I am proud to attend such a beautiful, wonderful school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus ambience, and the best feature in my opinion is being able to really interact with professors (which is great for networking). However, tuition is increasing every year and scholarships are usually difficult to obtain. Besides that I really love the school and being in the School of International Studies really puts you "out there," and it allows writing skills to improve considerably.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a diverse school with lots of available resources. The professors are generally pretty good and it really feels like your in a close knit community. The school cares about both you academic life as well as your non academic life, making it a good school to balance both

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, this school has exceeded my expectations. The class sizes are amazing, and even in my largest classes it's under 40 people. In those classes, you still get individual attention from the professors and they're super open to helping you outside of class or even outside of office hours. There's plenty of academic support, as well as spiritual, mental, physical, you name it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming into University of the Pacific I was given the opportunity to meet students my year who are first generation through different programs, which helped tremendously take off the unnecessary stress of having to make friends. Also orientation was helpful because we not only got network with current students from UOP, but we got informed of the resources offered at UOP. Overall I do not regret by choice of attending UOP it is truly a community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pacific has a very inviting and friendly atmosphere and student culture. I love being able to walk around and always see someone I know. The class and campus size is great if you are looking for a small college and the professors are very knowledgeable and willing to help you out. I have really enjoyed my time at Pacific and feel that I have learned so much through my courses and the opportunity I had to study abroad. Many students are involved in at least one club and there is a lot of options for different interests/ opportunities to be involved. The only drawbacks are some of the administration.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus itself is beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend venturing too far. The food leaves a lot to be desired. The pre-dent program is great for people interested in dentistry. The classes are definitely difficult, but the professors are always willing to help you succeed if you put in the effort.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

UOP is really something else when compared to other universities. Whether that's becasue it's a private school, or a small campus, I'm not sure; it really is a gem of Stockton. Here, professors can actually remember your name. They take the time to learn who you are, and because of that, they are able to help you more efficiently if you need it. Also, communicating with other students is not as difficult as it can be at other schools. Whether it be for work or for some down time, you will have fellow students on your side.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

"Everything is alright." That's what I would say to high school senior me. I was seventeen years old at the time, and I felt as if my world was falling apart. My family was going through some hard times, and my depression and celiac disease (I didn't know I had that yet) was getting worse. To top it all off, student loans turned me into a nervous wreak. I felt like it was all going to fall to peices; everything I worked for, everything I wanted, everything I had. The four associate of arts degrees I obtained in high school meant nothing to me. I was burying myself in my own mind. I guess I just needed to know things were going to be okay. Once I found that out, things seemed to get a little easier.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

One of the things I can brag about this school is that I can [practically] say "What's up?" to my professors, and they will respond. I say this in aknowledgement to the fact that, if you are a student invested in your work, your professors will be more than happy to help you learn the material of the class, and then some. The professors here really know there stuff, so feel free to talk with them about their area of expertiese.
