Orientation Theme

Orientation 2022 logoThe theme of Orientation this year is Talk To Me Boxer. The team wanted to play on beloved pop culture experiences of both students and families, especially with the release of recent movies. Talk To Me Boxer - embodies the essence that is “Boxer” and shows how we are all connected in supporting one another holistically. Utilize this as you find your place while “talking and meeting” new people as you become a Pacific Boxer and part of a diverse community. Take this opportunity to aim high, soar out of your comfort zone, and take off on your newest adventure.
