Was not originally my first choice for college but they definitely won me over. I love the weather, rainy and cool with scattered sunny days. I love the town, campus is literally right in the middle of downtown, meaning farmer's markets right on the edge of campus, several restaurants, a small movie theater, shops, pubs, coffee, and a fun walking area. The best part: student discounts! The campus itself is very nice, lots of trees, places to hang out, and you can get to class in five minutes. There are old and new buildings, including dorms and classrooms, but everything is kept up very well. I haven’t encountered a professor I didn't like, as everyone is eager for you to succeed. I changed my major this year and my old advisor was supportive, helping me reach out and meet people in my new field. I found it easy to make a lot of friends too, so no worries about finding a social life. It’s a great choice for someone looking for a smaller school where they will definitely stand out.
My overall experience at Pacific has been very good. Professors sincerely care about their teaching and students, and the campus environment is quite supportive and friendly. Most issues come from administrative decisions and a lack of communication with the student senate/body about issues that directly affect us. Absolutely nobody likes the university president, and for a decent reason.
I attended a summer program here. The campus is nicely landscaped and easy to navigate but the facilities were old (and musty/stifling) The food was in inedible! It's in a very small town far from the freeway/Portland with limited resources.
