New Student Orientation
Pacific's New Student Orientation is designed to help with your transition into our community. We want to welcome you and give you an opportunity to access the information needed to get you off to a great start. All new undergraduate students, Transfer and First-Year, participate in New Student Orientation. Our Orientation Leaders and Staff are ready to assist you and answer all of your questions about classes, campus life, and other exciting opportunities at Pacific.
First-Year and Transfer Students
New Student Orientation is a mandatory program for all incoming Pacific students. Our January Orientation session is for all new students, First-Year and Transfer, starting at Pacific in the Spring semester. For the January 2021 session, all portions will be held completely online to ensure the safety of all participating. Orientation Leaders, faculty, and staff will introduce you to life at Pacific and share tips to help you succeed as a Pacific student.
We are excited to welcome you and your student into the Pacific family! We will be hosting virtual sessions for family members so you can learn more about how you can best support your student in their transition to and throughout their time at Pacific. To ensure you receive all invitations to family member events, ensure your student has your email listed with their record in InsidePacific.
