Alumni

Once you are a Boxer or Badger, you are a member of the Pacific University family for life.

Over 28,000 alumni call Pacific University their alma mater. Our past students and graduates live in every state of the country, as well as more than 30 countries around the world. They are business leaders and public servants, artists and doctors, writers, scientists, and so much more.

Wherever they go, our alumni are connected to Pacific. They enjoy the benefits of being Boxers and Badgers — Pacific magazine, local discounts, baby T-shirts, and more. They give back to a new generation by serving on alumni chapters and associations. And, they come home for special events, including Homecoming and reunions.
