The school has a great academic atmosphere. Because of the policy prohibiting drugs or alcohol on campus, students can focus on learning and enjoy their studies in a healthy environment. The school provides great opportunities for extra-curricular education through various presentations of community speakers, authors, and other professionals.

    This is a beautiful campus that seamlessly integrates faith and knowledge. All of the professors I have had are extremely knowledgable and truly care about me and my personal success in their class and in life. I personally like the smaller school atmosphere because I get to really know the people, but that does mean that less opportunities are offered than at a large state school with more money.

    PLNU is my home away from home. It is impossible to beat the supportive community, caring professors, small classes, and ocean views. This school is great for surfers and Christians wishing to grow in their faith.

  • Mar-08-2017 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I have visited this school, and I couldn't have been more impressed. Right when i entered the school it felt as if I went to the Caribbean. The campus was beautiful! There was plants, trees, and flowers everywhere. The building had amazing architecture too. The view is amazing, perfect view of the ocean. Not only is the campus amazing but the people there were very kind. I definitely felt comfortable at this school. I advised to go check out the school.

    Having toured a ton of schools, I can firmly say that the atmosphere at PLNU is unlike any other college atmosphere. My parents and I had never felt so overwhelmed with kindness than at PLNU. I wanted to never leave.

    the campus is gorgeous and has an amazing view, but nothing can beat the atmosphere you feel when you step foot onto the campus. hearing about all the opportunities the students are given from my tour guide was a definite positive push to apply for the following school year. i highly recommended touring the campus if you have any interest in the school.

    The campus is amazing with the beach literally right there! The atmosphere is also great because it is very religiously centered which I like, but they are also open to students who are not religious. PLNU is in the best city, in my opinion, in the country, there's so much to do! I love PLNU!
