This is Your PUC
Life at PUC is busy, and not just hitting the books. Your calendar will be full as you get involved, make a difference, and find friends for a lifetime.
Faith & Service
PUC is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian community putting authentic faith and service in action, every day.
A Personal Faith
At PUC, students meet a real God. Chaplain Laffit Cortes baptizes a student in the waters at Goat Rock beach.
What Would Jesus Do?
PUC students live out the call to serve through weekly activities like feeding the homeless.
Your Spiritual Journey
Pre-Vespers in faculty homes are a way to bond with students and teachers who are ready to support you.
Change the World
Whether for spring break or a school year, students make a difference and share Christ’s love.
A Community of Believers
The Church fills up multiple times during the week as the PUC family gathers together to worship.
PUC’s location in Northern California’s Napa Valley places it at the heart of everything.
The PUC experience: big enough that there’s always stuff to do, small enough to be a campus family.
Great friends and incredible places create experiences you’ll remember for a lifetime.
A Friend and a Full Tank of Gas
The Napa Valley is full of places to explore. Having a friend along makes it a true adventure.
Enjoying the Journey
Whether on longboards, mountain bikes, or just two feet, students get around in style.
Color of Caring
Students are all smiles as they raise money for a favorite cause at REVO’s 5k Color Run on PUC’s trails.
Showcase your talents at the annual Student Association talent show, one of the SA’s weekly social events.
Keep yourself occupied outdoors all year, from the beach in summer to Tahoe’s snowy slopes in winter.
Display your Pioneer pride and support the college’s athletic teams at the Midnight Madness pep-rally.
Living at PUC
As a residential college, PUC becomes a second home as you study, sleep, eat, and hang out on campus.
Residence hall life gives students the experience of a Christian community complete with lots of activities, worships—and a room with a view!
Four women’s residence halls and three men’s residence halls provide an on-campus home for PUC students. Whether you become a proud resident of third-floor Andre Hall or enjoy life as a Man of Grainger—or if you live in one of the other halls—you’ll find that the time you spend in the residence hall is just as important as the time you spend in the classroom.
The on-campus vegetarian cafeteria has multiple options at every meal—and the famous late night burrito bar—to keep stomachs full and taste buds happy.
The social center of campus, the Campus Center is the perfect spot to meet up with friends for Ping-Pong, grab a drink and do some studying, or to jam out at an open-mic night.
Staying active is easy to do on a campus where wellness is part of the campus culture.
"With miles of trails right here on campus, there are countless opportunities to spend time with God in His beautiful nature while taking a break from studying."
