Pacific University’s Orientation is a unique program created to help ease your transition to college life. Pacific's Orientation experience is designed to help new students make connections to university staff, faculty, resources, and of course — other students. It also introduces you to the expectations of service to the community, academic commitment and genuine social engagement that are part of being a member of the Pacific University community. The activities during Orientation are designed to help you meet new people, get familiarized with campus and its services, and gain a better understanding of yourself as an individual. We invite you to dive into all Pacific has to offer and shape your first steps as a Boxer with us.

We look forward to meeting you. Welcome to Pacific!
