Meet a Boxer | Undergraduate Admissions

Connect with a Boxer!

We know the college application process can be overwhelming and confusing.  Connect with a current student to find out what life is like at Pacific University as a Boxer.

Our students are here to help!  Send an email with your inquiries and our students will make sure to get connected with you.  Students are open to answering questions that range from, "What made you choose Pacific?" to "What do you do on the weekends?"
