“The atrium on the first floor of the new building on our Health Professions Campus in Hillsboro is stunning. The colors, natural light and high ceiling make for an incredible room to host events and to visit with students.”

“My favorite place on campus is the Barbara Story Memorial Garden, between Strain and Murdock in the Science Complex. Even in the fall and winter months it seems that some sort of fragrant flower is in bloom. With a relaxing fountain and birds constantly chirping, I think it’s the most relaxing place on campus!”

“I would say my favorite place on the Forest Grove campus would be the Bistro. Every time I go in there it reminds me of my four years here at Pacific, from my parents buying me my first wrap during orientation, to eating lunch with my girlfriend in between my capstone classes.”
