First-Generation Student Resources

You can do this.

At Pacific University, about 24 percent of our undergraduate students are the first in their families to attend college. If you will be a first-generation college student, we want to help you make Pacific your home.

Many of our faculty and staff were once in your shoes. They are here to welcome you and help you find your way. Hear from a few of them in the stories below.

Examples of successful first-generation students are one of the most helpful things we can provide to our incoming students. If you are a first-generation college student, share your story using the online form.
