Oregon Private College Week at Pacific

2024 Oregon Private College Week

You are invited to come ask questions and discover why an Oregon private college is right for you during Oregon Private College Week (OPCW)! Sessions are held concurrently on 12 campuses statewide.

July 29 - August 2, 2024

9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. 

(West Coast Time/Pacific Time Zone)

While visiting Pacific University, students and guests will attend an informational session that will cover topics such as areas of study, clubs and activities, research and internship opportunities, scholarships, and the financial aid process. Admissions counselors will address common myths about the cost of a private college education, and answer questions about Pacific University and/or the college search process in general. In addition, students and guests will be taken on a tour of campus.

Registration closes Friday, July 26, 2024. However, Pacific University will gladly accept walk-ins for each session throughout the week. We ask that walk-ins call the front desk at 503-352-2218 to confirm session availability and to receive instructions (e.g. parking, check-in, etc.).
