Families & Support Systems | Orientation
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.
We are excited to welcome you to Pacific as part of your students' support during their academic career. Family Orientation will be provided in 2 ways this year. In person and online through the parent/family moodle course in efforts to make Orientation more inclusive, especially for those families who are not able to travel with their student. Family members are not required to attend any of the Orientation experiences but is an additional opportunity to ask questions and find out more information.
Parent/Family & Support Systems Orientation will be August 25 & 26. More information with details available late June.
If your student will be arriving early for athletics, voyages, etc.... We will be providing a mini-version of the August 25 and 26 Orientations for you to attend on that day. You are welcome to attend on August 25 and 26th as well.
All information for parent/family orientation will be available the first week of September online through the moodle course.
Each incoming student receives a themed shirt when they arrive at check-in in August. This year we are offering families and support systems the opportunity to order these shirts for themselves! This is a great way to commemorate your student's new adventure and to join in on the festivities.If you are interested in ordering shirts, please go through our online marketplace no later than July 19th. Shirts are pictured in the marketplace.
*Please note that incoming students are provided their shirt free of charge from the Orientation department.
The 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.
