What students Say

PUC’s community is preparing me to be the hands and feet of Jesus. . . . Many people think it is too far away from everything. . . . But there is a beauty about PUC that I have not been able to find elsewhere. We have waterfalls, hiking trails, and grass (real grass!), and are placed in what is, in my opinion, a perfect study environment.

What Alumni Say

My time as a student at Pacific Union College guides what’s important to me now: families and friends, service to others, and a sense of community. I value every day that I’m able to care for local children and their families as a pediatrician.
