New Student Orientation is Next Week! 

We are so excited for you and your family to be joining our Pioneers Family! The beauty of the NSO program is that it is specifically planned to help your transition into our college community. 

Here are a couple of things to do while you are eagerly (or anxiously) awaiting the start of your new adventure:

Join the Class of 2023 Facebook Group: If you haven’t already, join the Class of 2023 Facebook group and start meeting your future classmates!

Start Packing: Don’t become overwhelmed thinking about all the things you will need to have in your dorm room throughout the year. To help you out, we’ve put together “Your College Packing List”  on our blog, so you can refer to as you start getting ready to move in. If you need some inspiration for how you can help make your dorm room look and feel more like home, check out our “Dorm Decorating on a Budget” and “Tips for an Organized Dorm Room” blog posts for some ideas to help get you started!

Mark your calendars to arrive on Wednesday, September 18. Move-in begins at 9:00 a.m. In the meantime:

Have questions? Our team of counselors can answer any you have. Call (800) 862-7080, option 2 or email admissions@puc.edu to get connected with a counselor now.

Welcome to Campus!

JRRogersOn behalf of the faculty, staff, and students at Pacific Union College, I want to welcome all the new students to our campus!

YOU DID IT!

It’s been a long road but you’re finally here! The Enrollment team and I feel blessed to have gotten the chance to work with each of you over this past year, and we couldn’t be more proud. The best part of our job, and what makes our crazy travel schedules worth it, is getting to know you. The personal connections we have with each of you make us invested in you and we’re excited to see the difference you’ll make to our PUC community these next four years.

As you begin to arrange your dorm room and get acquainted with your fellow classmates and the campus, please don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it! Your deans and RAs are great resources, as is the Class of 2018 Facebook group. You will meet your advisor this week as well, and they will be your main resource for making sure you’re on track to complete your degree. Lastly, your Financial Counselor will be your lifeline as you navigate through finances.

Here are a few links to a few helpful things as you prepare to land on-campus:
