The pandemic has relegated you – our new and returning Pacific students – to remote learning for more than a year now. That is why we are offering a unique opportunity to engage in our campus academic and social life – and start or re-start your college life – before the regular school year starts in August.
Our award-winning faculty are offering dozens of courses in our classrooms, studios and labs during this special five-week session leading up to fall semester. Students can select from courses such as Public Speaking and Topics in Popular Music to Nutrition for Health and Media and Society. And there will be special-interest courses too, such as Epidemiology and Classical Mythology. Classes start July 19 and run through Aug. 20.
Students participating in the five-week Back to Pacific: Ready, Set, Roar! will be able to move into their regular fall room assignments as early as July 17. Students may move onto campus early even if they are not enrolled in summer Back to Pacific classes. The full array of Pacific on-campus housing is available, including apartments, residential halls and Greek houses.
Back to Pacific: Ready, Set, Roar! offers the opportunity to engage (for first- and second-year students) and re-engage (for juniors and seniors) in wide array of dynamic on-campus social and recreational activities. There will be concerts in the Lair, game nights, evening chats around the firepit, lawn picnics, “speed friending,” scavenger hunts, movies under the stars, karaoke nights, e-sports competitions, climbing wall activities, “Make it Yourself Mondays,” exercise classes such as yoga, barre and strength training, and special events at the President’s Residence featuring cookies and conversations with the President, First Lady and Pacific’s First Dog, Cali!
There also will be special programs designed for second-year students who have yet to be part of our campus (sophMORE) as well as other programs just for first-time Pacific students to get a jumpstart on college life.
The costs of courses and housing during Back to Pacific: Ready, Set, Roar! are less than the regular school year. Additionally, the university will offer financial aid to cover up to the full costs of tuition, housing and meal plans for students who enroll in Back to Pacific: Ready, Set Roar! and demonstrate financial need. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 209.946.2421 for more information.
Pacific also is offering online courses earlier in the summer during two five-week sessions leading up to Back to Pacific: Ready, Set, Roar!
