Do you love the mountains? Do you love the beach? Do you love the forest? Do you love the city? Do you love a combination of those? Do you love all of them? If you answered yes to even one of those questions you might want to consider applying to PUC and spending the next four or five years in NorCal.
Relax at the Beach
There are plenty of beaches within a short distance of PUC. Grab a blanket, a Frisbee, a guitar, and your friends and spend an afternoon on the coast.
Hang in There
Take advantage of being on our beautiful and peaceful campus. Join the latest craze; grab a hammock and a friend and swing the stress away.
Clear Your Mind
The campus is surrounded by over 30 miles of picturesque hiking and biking trails with incredible destinations, allowing for some of the most exquisite sunsets, perfect to get that Instagram-worthy photo or just take a moment to enjoy God’s gift.
For students interested in spending time outdoors, Northern California has limitless options. Go hiking at Mount St. Helena, take a mountain bike ride on the Napa Vine Trail, raft down the Russian River, ski at Lake Tahoe, go surfing at Ocean Beach, or simply take a nice stroll through the PUC forest.
Be a Local
Nearby St. Helena is just a quick trip down the hill, and you can often find students studying at one of the many coffee shops or taking a study break at Crane Park.
Be a Tourist
There are plenty of well known Bay Area sights but the Golden Gate Bridge is probably the most iconic!
Love the Small Town Charm
Sebastopol is famous for its quirky, artistic feel and friendly, small-town vibes with one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops.
Explore the City
There’s a reason why over 25 million people visit San Francisco each year! You will never have the same experience twice. You can catch the latest exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, have a picnic at Crissy Field, go on a shopping spree at Union Square, or catch a Giants game at Oracle Park.
