Foursquare is a popular location notification service that only recently has started to grow in the Central Valley. It is much more popular in larger cities like Sacramento and San Francisco, as it helps friends let other friends know what restaurants or nightclubs they are at. At Pacific's three campuses, many popular spots and buildings have been "marked" in Foursquare by students who want to let their room mates and friends know where they are. Recently, Pacific started its own Foursquare page. Head over there and follow us now.
SecondLife is a virtual online world where players can interact, exchange information and view information put in the "virtual" world by other users. Pacific has a campus in the virtual world.

You must have iTunes installed in your computer to view the site. ITunes is available through Apple.com and is free.
