As I reflect on my first full year here at Pacific University, it is great to see how much we have accomplished. We had the largest number of majors in the Forest Grove undergraduate class of May 2018. Commencement was a wonderful ceremony where the university honored both our graduates along with our honorary degree recipient, Tommy Thayer of the iconic rock band KISS.
Alumnus Jim Fitzgerald '68, Economics Professor Jamie Haag, and optometry student and alumnus Adam Preston MEd '10, OD '11 began their terms on July 1.
