Pacific University Rankings & Recognition

At Pacific, we strive to offer exceptional learning opportunities to every student.

We put a premium on small classes and personal attention. We want our students to call Pacific “home.”

Meanwhile, outside of Pacific, people are calling us some great things too! Like “Best Value School” and “Best in the West.”

Pacific is consistently recognized by national news organizations for its quality.

  • In 2017, we ranked 22nd among 141 institutions in U.S. News & World Report’s Regional Universities West Region.
