Wendell Tobiason believes parents should visit campus during events and connect with their kids and their University family. “My daughter [Anika Tobiason ’13] is immediately caught up in the activities that are planned for the students, but there is less ‘hand-holding’ for the parents,” he says. “This is part of why I participate in the Parent Association.” He also thinks when parents are involved in the University, their kids get a better education ­– even if the involvement is indirect.

Pacific University has positively impacted both Wendell and Anika. He is proud of her work, and his daughter is exploring all of the possibilities in her areas of interest.
