Challenging, Yet Rewarding
At Pacific, our students are challenged. And we wouldn't have it any other way.
While our academic programs are rigorous (we'll be the first to say it), our students are also surrounded by a supportive and engaging culture, one which aims to impact the course they take both professionally and personally.
Through this approach, Pacific shows a strong commitment to the individual and gives the student the building blocks for success now and later. At Pacific we value experiences that cement classroom learning and prepare students for the rigors of graduate school or the world of work beyond graduation. Students are engaged in undergraduate research, study abroad in countries around the world and take advantage of a wide range of internship opportunities that enhance and refine their preparation for a successful future.
It's hard work, but in the end, our students will benefit from a more complete education and emerge better prepared for a bright future ahead.
Find out why Pacific students have once again racked up some of the nation's most prestigious fellowships (Fulbright, Goldwater, Boren, and more). A combination of rigorous undergraduate research and an individualized experience gave these Tigers a competitive edge to reaching their full potential. And with these young scholars, the sky could be their limit.

One Stellar Investor
When 2013 graduate Andrew Mendoza began working full time at Cisco, he was in familiar territory. He had interned, both on-site and remotely, for the $11 billion technology company for over a year, and his work on Pacific's highly successful Student Investment Fund (SIF) gave him direct experience in the kind of technology research he'll be doing.
