A decade of walking service

Before you even saw your admission letter, chances are you toured through campus, armed with an enthusiastic Pacific Ambassador. From walking through the entire school backwards, to offering the most elaborate details about the school, the orange-shirted tour guides have served as role models and leaders to a full decade of past, current and potential students.

The Pacific Ambassadors will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this October. To celebrate this milestone and its decade of service and leadership, the program will be commemorating its Ambassadors this Homecoming weekend.

On Saturday, Oct. 18, all current and alumni Pacific Ambassadors are invited to attend and register for lunch at Valley Brew to enjoy each other’s company and to reminisce on old memories.

The reunion will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration for the lunch will be available through Homecoming’s registration. Alumni are also encouraged to attend the Homecoming Parade and Taste of Pacific.

Since the program’s inception, Pacific Ambassador duties have extended to “staffing the University Welcome Center, presenting a student view at admission yield events and being available upon request for any campus event, to name a few; even with the tremendous growth of the program the pride, spirit for Pacific and energy remains intact,” noted Courtney Sutton, the assistant director of New and Student & Family programs.

Sutton describes the program as an all-around good, stating, “Becoming a Pacific Ambassador allows for an opportunity to make connections with prospective and new students. As an Ambassador, a prospective student may choose to attend Pacific because of their campus tour or based on conversations they have had at Preview Day. The University considers the Pacific Ambassadors the ‘Face of Pacific!’”

Pacific salutes our Ambassadors. Happy 10th anniversary!
