Pacific Welcomes Alumni for 2019 Homecoming, Oct. 18-20

FGolden GuardOREST GROVE, Ore. — It’s an especially big weekend for Pacific University’s Class of 1969, which is this year’s Golden Guard class, but it’s a meaningful occasion for all Boxer alumni. Attendees will range from those who graduated during the Eisenhower presidency all the way up to the present year.

You’ll see the popcorn pop, the photos flash, the cotton candy spin and kids having fun at the annual Boxer Nation Celebration beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 and running through halftime of the football game against Lewis & Clark College. The football game starts at 1 p.m. Saturday in Hanson Stadium. 

Also on Homecoming Weekend, the volleyball team hosts George Fox University at 7 p.m. Friday, and the women’s soccer team hosts Lewis & Clark at noon on Sunday.

The Athletics Department will induct new members into the Athletic Hall of Fame, including softball pitcher Miranda (McNealy) Yancy ’10, track and field middle-distance runner Patrick McKeethen ’76, former head baseball coach Greg Bradley, and the complete 1991-1992 women’s basketball team. The induction ceremony is free, but registration is required.

Students and parents can meet the deans of the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business and College of Education on Friday, Oct. 18 at 5:30 p.m., and they can have breakfast and conversation with Pacific’s president, Lesley Hallick, at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19.
