What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of the Pacific is an excellent school in terms of its academics. The professors show they have a deep interest in you from the beginning. This is mainly due to the fact most classes do not have a large majority of students. They provide intimate places where you can interact with other students and faculty. However, if you are in a more impacted classroom you might not have the same experience. In spite of all that, I feel that UOP is a extremely expensive school which would only be worth it if you were getting a large amount of financial aid. If so, I believe you would have a good experience on campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academics offered at UOP are some of the best. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and they are also available, making it easy to receive any help outside of the classroom. Biggest benefit that you will find at UOP and not at other, larger colleges is the fact that most classes will average around 20 students. Professors know you on a personal level and they are always willing to share opportunities with you if they come across them. Definitely a great school to get connected professionally and learn the material with a deep understanding of the concepts taught. Drawback is definitely the location but UOP's campus really does feel like it is on the east coast and it is quiet.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school for those who want a more individualized learning experience since most classes are small. Also I recommend studying abroad, there are a lot of opportunities to study abroad but very few people do it despite the tuition fee not really changing regardless of the country you choose to go to. Most importantly, professors show a genuine love for what they are teaching and could sometimes mean that the class itself is hard. However, they are very much willing to help you outside of class, during their office hours or even outside those hours, to help with certain topics you are struggling with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school academically wise, but that also depends on your major. There are various programs that really helps the students be set up for a career but that is also dependent on the major. Such as the Engineering program giving you a 5 year master program or the Co-Op program. But keep in mind it is extremely expensive so it really depends if you find it worth it. Also some of the faculty is easy to get a hold of and some aren’t. I emailed a faculty and a week later still no reply so I went to the office and he was standing in front of me and said hi. The assistance said I could talk to him for help but then he was too busy gossiping. So i waited and when he walked away I asked if I could speak with him now but they said he is going on lunch now. Then there are some that replies back within a day. So that’s a heads up.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, UOP is not a bad school. People are friendly here and most of them are willing to help you study for classes if you just approach them and ask. There are many clubs and other extracurricular activities you can do here. However, classes here are a lot more difficult, especially sciences. This might because they try to prepare students who are major in STEM, pre-pharmacy, and pre-dentistry. Do prepare to spend the majority of your time studying, but also enjoy your undergrad years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Pacific has a great engineering program which is something that attracted me to the campus. Students are allowed to go on CO-OPs during the academic school year which gives them insight to working in their prospective field. The small classes are great because you're able to get one on one help from your professor and are able to work in small groups. There are many clubs and organizations for students to get involved in as well as many on campus job opportunities. However, as an African-American student on campus, I feel that there should be greater population of African-American students. African-American students make up about 3% of the student population. There should be more of an outreach to the local African-American community as well as local minority students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Having only completed my first year at this school, I can't necessarily give a comprehensive review. I can say however that I had enjoyed my time there. Classes are fairly small meaning that you get more attention from your professors. Whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you but in my opinion, it's beneficial to have a good relationship with all your professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Pacific is overall a great school. Most classroom sizes are small, which allows for more one on one interactions with professors. The food on campus tastes fantastic, however, the meals can be pricey. The same goes for on campus housing and the cost of tuition. Although the dorms are nice and comfortable, they are pretty up there in price. Tuition is crazy expensive, and many people I know have transferred to other schools because they couldn’t afford it. There are a lot of resources available to students. There are resources for first-in-the-family-to-attend-college students, students of color, students of the LGBTQ community, and much more. However, a downside is that many of these resources are not very well known amongst the students. Despite these downfalls there is a great community at Pacific, which is why I do say that it is a great school. The professors really care. They want you to succeed and not just take their class and move on. This school may not be for everyone, but it is the place for me.

The U.O.P. campus is a safe environment despite the stigma most people have about a college located in Stockton. The staff and current students attending U.O.P make sure you feel welcomed and definitely make it their goal to make sure no student is left out or alone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am still getting to know my college, and I hope that with time, I will come to appreciate it more. Coming from a lively city near the beach, moving to Stockton for college brought about a very different lifestyle. It feels as though my college is in the middle of nowhere with not many attractions or fun places to visit with friends. The campus itself is quite nice with the brick buildings and greenery. I especially enjoy visiting the library to study even though it may not be the biggest. The professors are knowledgeable, but from my standpoint, interactions between professors and students seem scarce. The food becomes repetitive and boring after living on-campus with a meal plan after a week or two. Student life is not as lively as I would like.
