New Transfer Students | Orientation

We're excited to have you join us!

Orientation is designed to provide you a straightforward transition to Pacific University.

Keep an eye on your email for newsletters and communications for updates — plans are subject to change as we adhere to COVID-19 safety requirements and recommendations.

Arise is this year's Orientation theme.

Arise Orientation 2020 logoSince the beginning of 2020, the world we have become comfortable with has shifted. This shift makes forward movement daunting, but we are only ever learning when we are uncomfortable. The foundations upon which we stand may seem to be unstable but in these times of instability, perseverance is what pushes us to not simply survive, but to live. We make the conscious decision to surge ahead, to not simply rebuild but to renew, to arise from the situations that will try to hold us down. This is not the end of a cycle but, rather, the beginning of another. Orientation 2020’s goal is to prepare our students to accept and embrace this within their Boxer spirit. In doing so, we are all better suited to take anything that may be thrown our way— at Pacific and after.

  • All students, including those living off-campus, will check in at a centralized location upon their initial arrival to the Forest Grove Campus.
  • At check-in, you will be required to provide information and will receive a welcome kit.
