how spoke schools work

I chose Pacific because of its high ranking and small classes, and because of the California weather! The campus is beautiful and the professors really care about my success. Pacific is like a family - lots of people from different places. It’s fun, and people are so friendly and helpful. It’s far from where I’m from, but it’s my second home.
