Nicholas Borchik graduated from PUC in 2019 and has recently found his way back to our favorite College on the Mountain only this time, his role is a little different. After receiving a degree in social studies, Nic decided to join the Admissions team as a counselor. Now Nic spends his days sharing his love for PUC and higher Adventist education with future students, helping them make intelligent decisions about their college journey.

What brought you to PUC? Why did you decide to work here?
I initially came to PUC as a student because I had already built such a strong community here through my brother and some of my best friends who were a little bit older than me. I have chosen to stay in the area because I have grown to care so much for this school and what it can do for students looking to grow their education and their faith, and I am looking forward to seeing how God will use me in this position.
What is the best thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?
For me, it has always been the relationships that you can develop across pretty much every aspect of life, from education to food, fun, and faith.
Where is your favorite place to eat in the Valley and why?
Gott’s Burgers will always be one of my favorites. Nothing beats a Gott’s burger and shake after a long day!
What is something you can do/want to do that might be surprising for people to learn?
I have always been really into DIY projects. One of my goals for the future is to build most of the furniture in my house!
What is one song or album you’re listening to a ton lately?
I have been listening to an album called Living Room by a band called Lawrence quite a bit recently. Musically it is a super rad album with genius lyrics, giving you something different to focus on each time you listen!
Who is someone you admire and why?
I have always admired Jon Foreman guitarist and singer for the band Switchfoot. First off as a musician and lyricist he influenced me greatly in the way I expressed myself through music when I was first learning to play music. More importantly, as a man of faith, he uses his art and his platform to advocate and stand for things he believes in.
What’s the last book you read for fun?
Recently I have been rereading Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer.
Favorite movie to watch?
I love tons of different movies, but one that I am able to re-watch quite a bit and that has become one of my favorites is Knives Out. It is probably one of the best movies I have seen in a long time!
Finish this sentence: On Sunday mornings you can find me …
Honestly probably sleeping in and trying to figure out something delicious to eat for lunch!
