Historical Note

The Pacific University Alumni Association has been the main avenue for alumni relations for the school since it first began keeping records of the graduating classes at Pacific Un iversity in 1919. However, the "Society of Alumni" pre-existed what is currently the Alumni Association at Pacific, which first began in 1864 and was open to all college-educated people in the area. The Alumni Association now serves over 18,000 alumni across the US and is known for hosting events that bring together university alumni such as Homecoming, graduate picnics, President's Luncheon, and travel tours such as the the african safari that was offered in 1988.
