Pacific University Reviews
I have loved my time at Pacific University. I was able to succeed in academics and athletics. I have been very busy, but the professors are amazing in the way they work with their students and get to know them. If I could change anything it would be school spirit. We need more students participating in events! Other than that I love it and would highly recommend.
It is a very small university, so getting to know the other students is very easy. Almost a quarter of the students are athletes, so playing sports automatically plugs you into a special community on campus. However, for the private school prices, you receive an average level education, with an average experience in terms of housing and overall college atmosphere. Unfortunately, for a small school, they have a hard time dealing with student issues in an efficient manner, leading to some discomfort on campus. If you are looking for mediocre schooling for a very expensive price in a decent small town with relatively easy access to Portland, than Pacific is the place for you.
I love Pacific University. The small campus really inspires a friendly and supportive community. There is something for practically anyone here. Plus the campus is absolutely beautiful! I have met some of my best friends here and I wouldn't trade that for the world. I feel that I am learning a lot here and my mind is constantly expanding. It's marvelous!
