PUC Pioneers

Pacific Union College alumni have always been pioneers. Founded in 1882 by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the college was built by the hands of its first students and professors amid untamed wilderness beauty, and was the first school to be accredited by the church and to offer graduate studies in an Adventist setting.

PUC continues to prepare students to lead lives of significance and service, offering students all the advantages of a larger university–a strong academic reputation; over 70 degrees and programs; cutting edge research; classes taught by Fulbright scholars; and a diverse student body–but with the benefits of a small college focused on the undergraduate experience and in an atmosphere of Christian community.

Today, there are over 27,000 PUC alumni worldwide. Our alumni are leaders in a wide variety of fields, including medicine, business, nursing, ministry, and visual arts. Many also go on to attend prestigious graduate schools, including Loma Linda University, UC Davis School of Law, UCLA, University of Southern California, Johns Hopkins University, Yale, and the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, among others. No matter their occupation, our alumni are making a positive impact in their communities around the world.
