Pacific Assistant Director of Student Activities Recognized by National Association of Campus Activities

Pete Erschen, Pacific University’s assistant director of student activities and multicultural interests, has won the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA) Legacy Award for 2018.

The award was created in honor of NACA’s 50th anniversary, and its recent winners represent some of the largest universities in the country.

NACA is a nonprofit, membership-based organization that provides knowledge, ideas and resources to promote student learning through engagement in campus life. The organization hosts events that showcase musicians, comedians and other types of acts that perform on college campuses.

“I have volunteered with Pete Erschen throughout the years through the National Association of Campus Activities and have seen his amazing work and how his creativity and drive have changed our profession for the better,” said Megan Habermann, an NACA member and associate director for student engagement at Western Oregon University. She nominated Erschen for the Legacy Award.

The NACA’s awards committee selects winners, by majority vote, from among nominees that have served in multiple volunteer roles and plan to continue to volunteer for the organization.

Pacific's Student Activities Office facilitates intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth within the college environment. It's a place where students can get involved with planning activities, learn about student clubs and organizations, start new organizations or schedule co-curricular and extra-curricular events for the university community.
