Pacific Family

We know that college is a major investment, not just for students but for their families as well.

At Pacific University, your student will receive a rich educational experience both in and out of the classroom. Our focus is the liberal arts and sciences — we believe in a broad education that prepares students for any journey they may take in their lives. But we also know that our graduates need jobs. That’s part of why our students complete senior projects, work in internships, and gain real-world experience throughout their undergraduate experience.

In a recent survey, our undergraduate alumni from the last 10 years said that they felt well-prepared for the working world after attending Pacific University. Even better, 82 percent of them said they were working within six months of graduation.

Learn more about financial aid offerings, scholarship opportunities, and the support our Career Development Center offers soon-to-be and recent graduates.

You also may want to read about what some of our alumni are up to after graduation. Check out our alumni success stories.

And, remember, when your child attends Pacific University, you become part of the Boxer family as well. Find out how our Office of Parent Support can help you with the transition.

Finally, watch for information about our annual Family Weekend each October — and be sure to join us.
