I have just registered at Fresno Pacific University. I have had a wonderful experience thus far. I am a 35 year old that is returning to college on a degree completion program. I am basically starting over! The staff at Fresno Pacific have been very accommodating, kind, and super knowledgeable. They have made this life changing decision jump off to a pleasant start. I feel very well informed and prepared to start this next journey in my life. I truly believe with the support I have at Fresno Pacific I have an awesome chance at achieving my goals!
Review Fresno Pacific University
I really like how they are Christ Centered! You develop relationships and strong bonds with other students and teachers. You can feel the love and attention from people, wanting to live Christ like while making a difference. I wouldn't change anything honestly, It is a bit pricey but the reviews and graduation rate is awesome. Companies are hiring people who come out of Fresno Pacific!
The faculty at Fresno Pacific University does an excellent job of ensuring their students get the most our of their educational experience. The number of students in the classes I have had has not been excessively large, such as my former university. This makes it much easier for the professor to be able to interact with each one of their students. Never did I think I would be at a university where every professor I have knows my first name. In addition to this, all the professors I have had have been great. They are flexible and are willing to work with you if ever you encounter any difficulties. I highly recommend this university.
