Families & Support Systems | Orientation

Welcome to Pacific University! 

We are thrilled to have you and your student become part of the Boxer family! All of us here know that this can be just as much of a transition for you as it is for your student. Follow us on Instagram (@pacificu_orientation) to learn more! 

Parent & Family Orientation

In August, we offer Parent & Family Orientation, a unique opportunity to help parents and family members assist their student in the transition to college. While your student participates in New Student Orientation, you will have an opportunity to join sessions with information and resources that are particularly helpful for you during this transition.

This program is required for all undergraduate new and transfer students and includes greetings from campus administrators, gatherings with Orientation Leaders, academic introductions, and opportunities to meet classmates and to get involved on campus. Students will receive more details about Fall Orientation throughout the summer through their Pacific University email so be sure to check your Pacific email regularly. 

Parents and supporters, Parent and Family programming is August 22 - 23, 2023 and ends Friday evening.

The full orientation is held Thursday, August 22 - Sunday, 25, 2024 and is required all new undergraduate first-year and transfer students. Your student will receive greetings from campus administrators, gather with Orientation Leaders, attend academic introductions, and take part in opportunities to meet classmates and to get involved on campus! Students will receive more details about Fall Orientation throughout the summer through their Pacific University email so be sure they are checking their Pacific email regularly.

Parents and family members, you can also follow us on Instagram (@pacificu_orientation) and sign up for the Parent & Family Newsletter to learn more!
