Pacific Union College is a private, Christ-centered institution established in Napa Valley, California. While the college offers both undergraduate and graduate programs, the vast majority of students in attendance are undergraduates. PUC is part of Adventist Colleges Abroad’s consortium of colleges, which offers students the opportunity to study abroad extensively while earning credit at their home institution. Many programs in the college’s catalog require internships, theses, or studying abroad in order for students to graduate. Students attending PUC can take advantage of the school’s wide variety of facilities, such as the Rasmussen Art Gallery, Pacific Union College Church, and the back40 nature trails.
PUC is a school where you will feel very comfortable if you have been raised in the Adventist church, especially if you are familiar with the more conservative side of the church. On a small campus, you will definitely have a chance to get to know a lot of people. Dorm life is amazing, and the local activities are more varied than most people think.
