Pacific Union College Reviews
Overall, it's a wonderful, positive campus seated in the very green area of Napa Valley. The air is wonderful, and the climate is comfortable. The teachers are good at what they do, and everyone is very kind and approachable. However, the cafeteria does not cater to all eating types (it's all vegetarian), it's very expensive, the town is so isolated that one needs a car to get to Napa (or anywhere else for that matter), and some Major programs are not as large as others. I would recommend this college to people going into a medical profession.
It was rated one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. The staff and residents are friendly and helpful and kind. The cafeteria food is poor and the only way to get signal is through Verizon, it is also a bit isolated so a car is a must if you want to do anything.
PUC is a great school. I feel that gives pre-professional students, especially med and dent, an extra leg up for getting into Loma Linda because of the formal interviews that take place on campus.
