Homecoming 2013 In Review


A record number of alumni gathered on the Forest Grove and Hillsboro campuses at nearly 40 events over four days.


Among the festivities were reunion gatherings for 11 different classes.

The Class of 2003 had 82 alumni in attendance, the most of any class, with reunions for graduates from Arts & Sciences, Optometry, Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy.

The Class of 1963 had a record high 45 alumni in attendance for their 50th reunion and Golden Guard induction ceremony.

One-quarter of the nearly 1,100 registered Homecoming participants traveled to the event from outside the state, with many guests coming from the East Coast and Hawaii. The record for furthest distance traveled goes to an alumna from 2003 who arrived in Oregon from a business trip in Mongolia.

The Gamma Sigma 150th anniversary celebration, a signature attraction of the weekend, was attended by more than 140 guests.

The Office of Alumni Relations is already looking ahead to Homecoming 2014 -- date to be determined and announced in early 2014. Volunteer recruitment for 2014 reunions is already under way for alumni in from all colleges and programs. A minimum of two volunteers are needed.  Alumni whose class years end in 4 or 9 are invited to participate in their reunion committee. To volunteer, contact Martha Calus-McLain '03, director of alumni relations at 503-352-2764 or martha@pacificu.edu.
