Happy Birthday University of the PacificJuly 10, 2013 marks the 162nd anniversary of Pacific's founding - Celebrate with Pacific Alumni at special events during the month of July
On July 10, 1851, University of the Pacific became California's first chartered institution of higher learning. Now 162 years later, Pacific continues strong, embracing our future with anticipation. As we look to another school year, we can reflect with pride on Pacific's heritage and our traditions of innovation, community involvement, experiential learning, exceptional professional preparation and close relationships between faculty and students that continue to this day. While we continue to pioneer new programs, develop innovative curricula and expand and improve facilities, we have remained true to our core values and strengths that are the hallmark of the Pacific experience.
We can also be proud to work at one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. Just this month, BestColleges.com included Pacific on its list of the 18 most beautiful college campuses.
During the month of July, the Pacific Alumni Association is sponsoring "Happy Birthday Pacific" events throughout California. Join the Pacific family at one of these events and celebrate our heritage and our future.
