How to make the most of Admitted Student Day 2023

Pacific’s Admitted Student Day on Friday, April 14 is your ticket to a highly personalized experience of Pacific. Even if you’ve toured our beautiful campus before, we encourage you to come meet your future deans and professors, talk to current Tigers and get a sneak peek into a day in the life of Pacific students.

This jam-packed day will help you really get to know Pacific and be as confident as possible in your college choice. Plus, if you decide to confirm your enrollment during Admitted Student Day, we even have a special celebration planned!

Here are our tips for making the most of Admitted Student Day, from what questions to ask to the events and experiences you won’t want to miss.

Ring the Burns Tower bells

Committing to Pacific deserves a loud announcement. If you confirm during Admitted Student Day, you’ll get to ring the Burns Tower bells for all to hear. Plus, you’ll get a voucher to pick up some Pacific spirit gear at the University Bookstore on us.

And to top it off, we will have a photo booth set up where you can record a confetti-filled 360-degree souvenir video that you can post on social media!

Get here early 

If this is your first-time visiting Pacific, it is a good idea to arrive early so you can familiarize yourself with the campus. Check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. at Burns Tower at the Pacific Avenue entrance.

Parking will be free all day and you can find parking lots on the campus map and in the Admitted Student Day program. If you check in early, make sure to grab a bite at the complimentary welcome breakfast. 

Many events, such as the Presidential Welcome, lunch, info booths and the closing reception will take place on Knoles Lawn right behind Burns Tower. 

Go on a personalized tour 

One of the highlights of Admitted Student Day is the opportunity to explore Pacific’s beautiful, 175-acre campus. Tours will depart from Burns Tower every 15 minutes throughout the day. When you arrive, let us know what you want to explore, and we will match you with the best tour for you. 

All tours are led by experienced Pacific Tiger Team members, current students who will be happy to answer your questions. You will also be able to meet the deans of our schools and colleges and walk through buildings and classrooms. There will be a lot to see, so it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast the day before you arrive and wear layers and comfortable shoes. 

Take a class and meet your professors 

During our academic previews, you’ll get a sneak peek at what classes at Pacific are like. These sessions include presentations from faculty members in the sciences, humanities, engineering, business and music. Come see for yourself how our commitment to experiential learning and personalized attention make the Pacific experience so unique.

Plus, you’ll get to meet your future professors! Our faculty are known for their dedication and commitment to student success—you’ll see what we mean as soon as you step on campus. Make sure to ask them questions and talk to them about your academic and career goals so they can get to know you.

Ask lots of questions 

We know you have a lot on your mind—here’s your chance to ask away. Throughout the day, you’ll have lots of opportunities to chat with members of the Pacific community and get all your questions answered.  

We encourage you to take some time to attend special interest sessions presented by Pacific’s Financial Aid Office, Residential Life and Housing Office, and Career Services, among others. Our expert staff will be happy to meet with you and share everything you want to know about Pacific.

Most of all, we encourage you to talk with current Tigers about their Pacific experiences. If you have a chance, ask them why they chose Pacific and what they really enjoy about being a student here. 

And if you have any questions about the event schedule or where to find certain spots on campus, keep an eye out for our “Tiger Team” in the bright orange polos—they’ll be happy to help.
