Advising Center staff 

    Dear Marylhurst Students,

    I’m the Director of Advising at Pacific University but my previous work was as Director of Admissions at Marylhurst University. Like you, I’m devastated with the announced closure of Marylhurst and it is with great sadness that I’m reaching out to you. We want all Marylhurst students to find the right college or university to finish their degrees.  Pacific supports both the Marylhurst students and administration at this time of change. I’m working with any students that are interested in finishing their degrees at Pacific University. We want to make this unexpected transition as smooth as possible for all of you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,
    Gretchen Potter, Director of Advising
