Pacific rolls out the red carpet for admitted and prospective students
From undergraduate students to working professionals, Pacific has been showcasing prospective and admitted students what it has to offer on its three Northern California campuses at a variety of events this spring. Recent recruiting events have brought out more than 1,500 potential future Tigers and their families to its Stockton, San Francisco and Sacramento campuses to learn about Pacific's programs.
Tiger Day tops attendance
Pacific welcomed a large crowd of 1,500 admitted students and parents to Tiger Day on the Stockton Campus on Saturday, April 8, topping last year's attendance for the spring welcome event. Despite the rain, the day kicked off with a street fair with food, information tables and opportunities to learn about Pacific first-hand from faculty, staff and current students. After the welcome session, admitted students and their parents attended academic program information sessions, campus tours and receptions.
Stockton Campus graduate information session
With over 30 graduate programs at the Stockton Campus, the April 8 graduate information session was a structured event with a presentation about the University and academic programs. With 40 people in attendance, the program directors showed visitors around their classrooms and labs and talked more extensively with them about their programs.
Sacramento and San Francisco campuses open their doors to professional students
Nearly 80 people attended the Sacramento Campus Open House held at the McGeorge House patio on March 29 to learn about all of Pacific's programs held in the capital city. Featured programs range from the JD, Master of Laws and Master of Public Policy and Public Administration to master's programs in data science, organizational learning and effectiveness, a master's in physician assistant studies, an EdD and a degree completion program for working adults.
