Parents of Incoming Students

New Students & Family Programs Welcome

The years your student will spend at University of the Pacific will likely be the most growth-filled and rewarding years of their life. As parents and families, you will share with your student the achievements, frustrations, and challenges that come with this experience. Your first opportunity to participate in the Pacific Experience will be during orientation, family orientation is designed for you, our newest parent and family member.  Find more information about family orientation here.

We, at Pacific, recognize as parents and families you may need some support during your student's college years, and that is why the office of New Student & Family Programs exists. It is our mission to provide resources, information, and opportunities for parents and families to become partners with the university in the educational experiences of their students. 

In an effort to improve our connections with you online during the time your student is at Pacific, I would like to encourage you to provide us with a convenient email address while you are at orientation. If you are unable to attend orientation, please have your student send an email from their u.pacific.edu account to parentassociation@pacific.edu so that we can forward you a variety of Pacific news, announcements, and invitations.  Have your student include your first and last name, their first and last name and their Pacific ID number, along with your email address.

We are profoundly grateful for the support and encouragement of our alumni, parents and friends, and deeply proud of what this University represents. On behalf of the Pacific Community, we look forward to building a successful partnership with you.

Warm Regards,
Linda Dempsey
Director, New Student and Family Programs
