Senior Preview Days are Coming to an End

With only five Senior Preview Days left, the fall semester is starting to wind down in Admissions as we prepare for a whole new group of events in the spring. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a senior preview day there are still spots available, and if you're a junior in high school and think you might be interested in something like this, the Junior Preview Days start after the winter holidays. Preview Days are a fun way for you to get to know the campus, the faculty, the students, and the university as a whole. You get to listen to a talk by one of our Admissions Counselors, letting you in on all the insider information about Pacific, and you also get to chat with faculty and go out on a tour with a current student. Information about Senior Preview Days are up on the Pacific website now with information about Junior Preview Days being added in the next couple months. We hope to see you there!

Welcome Back to Pacific!

The fall semester has officially begun for our undergraduate students! Over the weekend, Pacific had their freshmen/transfer orientation for the new incoming class. Orientation was a major success! The highlights of the event were Faces of Pacific where students gathered on the football field to get to know one another, the annual Orientation dance which was held on Saturday night on the patio of Washburne Hall and Convocation!

Summer is quickly coming to an end with the autumn weather is starting to set in. Students are getting back into/learning the rhythm of life on campus. Stay connected with campus life and what's happening on and around our beautiful university by checking this blog and the Undergraduate Admissions' social media accounts.
