All are welcome to celebrate the life of Santha R. Zaik, former music librarian, who died in 2021, as we name the Music & Study Commons in her memory. 

Santha was an employee of the Pacific University Libraries and Music Department for more than 40 years and was a steadfast supporter of innumerable students and colleagues.

At the library, Santha was the music specialist and cataloging assistant. She had a passion for music, as a performer and instructor. At the libraries, she was the architect of the music collection and liaison for the music faculty and students.

In addition to her role with the Libraries, she also organized the Music in May camp and festival for high school band, orchestra, and choir students, and taught French horn to students in the music department. She was also instrumental in organizing the annual Pacific University College of Optometry Northwest Residents Conference.
