Pacific welcomes new students, new programs

On Pacific's Stockton Campus, the new school year begins with the opening Convocation ceremony. It's punctuated by Pacific faculty, staff and current students welcoming new students with the traditional Tiger Roar. A weekend of activities, such as the Welcome BBQ and the rockin' Block Party, help the newest Tigers make friends and current students get reacquainted, and energizes everyone for the new year.

On the San Francisco Campus, new dental students are treated to the annual cioppino feed while new student retreats and community service projects help them make friends and learn about their community. This school year, Pacific welcomed the inaugural students in four exciting new graduate programs: analytics, audiology, food studies and music therapy.

And in Sacramento, new students prepare for their first year of law school at a reception with the dean and faculty- and the oath of professionalism ceremony. A new mix of students will be joining the Sacramento campus this fall with the launch of EdD and MBA programs.

It's just the beginning of their Pacific experience for these newest Tigers.
