Don’t miss these events at Homecoming Weekend 2023

Pacific students mingle at a fall campus event.

Congrats, Tiger, you made it through midterms! What better way to celebrate than with your family and friends at Homecoming! University of the Pacific will host various events and programs this weekend, from October 13-15, across campus for alumni, family members, students and members of the Pacific community to enjoy.

All events require registration, which can be accomplished in person on October 13 at the Welcome Center in the Alex and Jeri Vereshchagin Alumni House. Here you can also pick up a weekend schedule, name tags and event tickets. Their hours are 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. 

Here’s a quick breakdown of events you, as a current student, don’t want to miss! 

Movie night under the stars

Grab some pillows and blankets from your dorm room and set them up on the Don and Karen DeRosa University Center Lawn for an outdoor screening of “A Million Miles Away” (PG) on Friday, October 13 at 8 p.m. “A Million Miles Away” tells the inspiring story of Pacific alumnus José Hernández, the first migrant farmworker to travel to space. The event is free, and popcorn will be provided! 

Run, stride or walk around campus

Bright and early on Saturday morning is the Tiger Dash, a family-friendly race around our beautiful campus. There’s a half-mile Cub Run for kids, the timed and certified 5K Tiger Dash and a casual 5K Pack Walk for strollers and pets on leashes. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m., and the official start time is at 8 a.m.  

Breakfast with the president

If you prefer a later start to your Saturday morning, head over to President and First Lady Callahan’s home for a backyard breakfast with live music from Pacific student musicians at 9 a.m. 

Cheer on your Pacific athletics teams across campus

There are four opportunities for you to show school spirit and cheer on your Tigers on Saturday. But before heading over to the women’s volleyball match, stop by the Homecoming lunch and tailgate at 11:30 a.m. for some great barbeque, fun activities, beer/wine and giveaways. Then, head over to Alex G. Spanos Center to watch women’s volleyball take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs at 12:30 p.m. 

After the match, head over to Knoles Field to watch women’s soccer challenge Bay Area foe, Santa Clara Broncos, at 1:30 p.m.  

Next, take your Tiger spirit over to Chris Kjeldsen Pool, where your #13 Pacific men’s water polo team will take on #15 California Baptist at 3 p.m.  

Finally, end your night back on Knoles Field to watch a beautiful Stockton sunset AND men’s soccer match against California at 7 p.m. 

On Sunday, your nationally ranked men’s water polo team will be back in the pool to face #12 UC Santa Barbara. End your Homecoming weekend with a splash!  

Immersive experiences

On Saturday at 10:30 a.m., Pacific will be offering free academic experiences to allow alumni, students and families to explore the innovative learning spaces and connect with faculty, Deans and students. These interactive sessions will be led by Pacific faculty members, some of whom are Faculty Mentor Award recipients. 

The Homecoming headquarters is also a great resource for questions and offers device charging stations and light beverages. For more information about this weekend, check out this website

See you there, and happy Homecoming!
