Pacific University Oregon Reviews
The lifestyle on campus was was also a great experience. It is a smaller student population so you really get a chance to make close friends with people who at another university you may only see in passing. There were a lot of fun student events as well as being able to attend any of the school sporting events. The food from the dining hall was very good and there were always so many options.
Overall I was very happy with attending Pacific University.
