Family members are highly encouraged to attend Pacific's Family Orientation, which is available during all freshman and transfer orientation sessions.
Orientation will provide an opportunity to learn about university life, meet campus administrators and faculty, and make connections with other Pacific families. Family Orientation will take place at the same time as your student's orientation, however many different activities are planned for students and families.
There are two options to register for Family Orientation:
- Students can log onto InsidePacific and add family members to their original confirmation.
- Family members can download, complete and mail in the Freshman Family Orientation Registration Form or Transfer Family Registration Form along with a check or money order to the office of New Student & Family Programs.
