Historical Note

The Boxerettes were an honorary service women's group at Pacific University. The group was founded in 1936 and was active until 1971. Young Pacific women were chosen to be in the Boxerettes based on scholarship, leadership quality and personality. The group helped host such functions as the President's Tea, freshman orientation, the Music in May concert, and beach days with their male counterparts, the Intercollegiate Knights. They were well-known on campus for their visibility in a number of programs and for hosting social events for the student body.
