What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UOP. The class sizes are perfect, the professors are engaged in education, and the campus is always active. You will never find yourself with nothing to do here. Something is always going on and there is always someone to talk to. The professors are truly interested in making your education the best it can become.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Pacific has shown me the potential of my talents and I know I'm getting a quality education. I never hesitate to ask questions and seek help because I know the faculty is willing to help in anyway possible. I'm grateful to attend a school where my education is important and I have resources to help maximize my learning experience. Encouragement is also key. I never feel left behind by my peers of my professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When you first visit University of the Pacific typically your first impression is that it is a beautiful campus. Everything they say about it sounds nice and you think it is a flawless college. After attending it for two years, going on three, I have realized that it isn't as amazing as people make it seem. For some reason, they believe that having a difficult science program is a smart idea, but it's not and in turn, a lot of kids switch majors. Studnet life is practically non-existent so don't expect a lot of involvement. Having small classrooms and one-on-one interactions is honestly a plus. It's not a perfect school and honestly, there are other schools that can give you a better college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of the Pacific is a fantastic University. Don't let the price tag scare you, the ROI on this school is in the top 12 in the country. The alumni is a very tight knit group of people committed to helping alumni and students. The classes are not that challenging. They are more difficult than a community college but less difficult than MIT or Stanford. Take your courses seriously and study... you will be fine. Show up, take notes, and make use of the library. There is a group of snobby rich kids. Ignore them, just focus on your course work. This school has a variety of kids from all income groups. You will enjoy the environment and resources this school has to offer. Take a tour! It is amazing in the fall!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Setting aside the cost of attendance, Pacific is a wonderful place to be at. With an expensive tuition the popular is that only rich narcissist enroll but it's quite the opposite. The people here are what make it thrive with the amount of positive energy that is given off. From the professors to admissions to your Student Advisors, everyone has that motivational attitude that keeps you going. The students here are always talking about things they enjoy or discussing many other things. Pros Attitude of staff and older students towards new students -Always willing to help you and make you feel welcome. Fine academics and outstanding staff Cons -Mac users beware. Classes involving coding require Microsoft. It would have been nice if the class specifies what programs are being used. Grey Area -Expensive food. Understandable but given that's it's more high quality the price must be high too. -Small time fees for ASUOP and gym, even if you'll never use them. Annoying but there is a lot to get involved in campus. -Many on-campus jobs require proficiency in Word and Excel. Not bad, just that Mac users need to adjust.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful, yet small, campus. The school is not as diverse as I hoped but I knew this going in. I believe I have learned a lot about myself and others attending Pacific. The academic are extremely challenging but in a good way. I feel like Pacific is preparing me for the working world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Pacific is a beautiful campus with small class sizes and "professors who know your name." Though not known for its political involvement/advocacy, great food, outstanding academics, nice surrounding city, or huge party scene, Pacific is a place where many people can thrive academically and professionally, while enjoying their time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UOP, I'm just going to say that right off the bat. I am a military dependent; I have lived in multiple states and gone to 6 different schools. I am lucky to have had these experiences of different regions and cultures. And it is something I love about the University of the Pacific. The campus is incredibly diverse, students and faculty alike. People are open, friendly, and welcoming. The professors really care about their students and the entire University really strives to provide the best for all who attend. I have had some of the best experiences of my life at UOP and have made friendships to last a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While UOP may seem like a quiet place, there are activities and stuff to do if you look for it. It is a small campus, with great security and a close knit community. I found it pretty welcoming. The academics are wonderful though, with very helpful and willing professors. The class sizes are small so you get to know all your professors and they always have opportunities for you. Even if UOP isn't the wildest or has the biggest social scene(aside from Greek life--it has a pretty big Greek life), it does have excellent academics. It is a bit expensive but they are pretty good at hooking kids up with scholarships. I found that, compared to other colleges, the housing is pretty decent. Only thing is that the campus food kinda sucks and the city can be a bit unsafe--so I would recommend not wandering about alone at night when off-campus.

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!
