Restore the PUC experience for students by giving today.
Your contribution will go towards making sure PUC is delivering a worthwhile, efficient and safe education, no matter the circumstances.
Pacific Union College has always been a place of refuge where students can learn and grow. While that is still the case, this is not a normal school year.
Students are isolated through social distancing, virtual learning, masks and plexiglass. Professors teach through screens or in classrooms that aren't full. It is taking a tremendous amount of time and resources to make this school year both safe and successful.
Students choose PUC because they want more than just a diploma on graduation day. As we know, the connections and memories that are made at PUC last a lifetime as students live, work and grow together.
Now more than ever, we want to ensure all our students — facing uncertainty, insecurity, and unprecedented challenges — can still have the same meaningful experiences and education that make time at PUC so transformative.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2-3
