What Students Are Saying

3.89 Average Rating
At Pacific, you a treated like a person not a number. Beyond that, their for year graduation rate is very high. So even it the price tag seems high, with scholarships and the ability to get all your classes in, it is a better deal by far
Juliana from Bremerton, WA
pacific is a stimulating community that encourages its students to diversify themselves. while on campus there is an overwhelming feeling of acceptance and openness. students have the opportunity to sample classes in multiple fields and pursue other interests in addition to their major.
