English Department at Pacific University

"I have gotten used to being here, but it never gets boring. Every day I see something that floors me and makes me rethink the way I see the world. Sometimes what I see reinforces old beliefs. But more often what I see shatters my understanding of things. China has been very good for my writing."
--Rachel Smucker, Wenzhou

Rachel Smucker (Creative Writing, 2002) teaches English at Wenzhou Medical College. Pacific's Teach in China program recruits Pacific Alums for this growing program at Wenzhou, one of Pacific's sister schools. Six of our former students, including two English majors, now live on Wenzhou's campus.

Our English grads study, teach, and work all over the world and in a range of demanding and innovative careers. They epitomize the Pacific ethic of creativity, excellence, and service.
