Over the last 30 years at Pacific, programs were added and expanded; enrollment grew. The vast majority — about 80 percent — of Pacific’s living alumni attended the university in the last 30 years. Now scattered from Washington County, Oregon, to points around the planet, they represent an increased diversity of disciplines and experiences, as well as after-graduation achievement.
