“I chose Pacific to study as an engineer because this school has a really good reputation as well as faculty and facilities. UOPI has helped me a lot by creating English classes and allowing me to overcome my English barrier.”
“When I first came to Pacific, UOPI staff members helped ease my transition and lessened my culture shock. UOPI also helped me plan for the future by providing on-campus job requirements, information sources and interview tips.”
