Parent/Family Information

Welcome to the Boxer Family. You have been an integral part of assisting your incoming student(s) as they have navigated their way to becoming a Boxer. Whether it is your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, spouse, or friend, sending them off to college is a big transition for all of you. Our goal in Orientation is to assist you through the beginning stages of this transition. 

Family and Support System Orientation | Fall 2020

  • All family and support system orientations will be online this year.
  • For those family members who will be assisting their student on-campus during the August 26-29 time frame of when your student signs up, we will be providing a 1-hour presentation on the day of your arrival. This will be provided on a rolling basis throughout the day according to when your students’ time to check-in to Orientation is scheduled.
  • We ask that once you have moved your student into their residence hall, attended your Orientation presentation (optional), and have run any last-minute errands, that you say your goodbyes and not return to campus during the rest of the week.
  • We understand this will be difficult and not the way you had anticipated getting your student settled and then departing.
  • We are committed to providing the best overall experience and safety procedures for all our students and family and support systems during a very intense time with many people needing to be on campus.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at  orientation@pacificu.edu or by phone at 503-352-3040. See you in a few short weeks!
