Student Experience

“As an international student from Italy, the transition from high school in Italy to an American university was hard. I miss my family, friends, and the food. However, I am really enjoying the University of the Pacific, and living in Casa Jackson has been great to meet new people and build new friendships.”

– Mario Alexander Di Santi, business, Class of 2024
