Letter from President Eibeck
Dear Class of 2015,
Congratulations! The many months you’ve spent learning, questioning, discovering, volunteering, networking and developing lifelong friendships have led you to graduation day.
All of us at the University are so proud of you.
Armed with a superior education, you are ready to launch your careers and serve your communities. You’ve developed intellectually and ethically, honing your creativity and your skills in critical thinking. You’re prepared to lead, collaborate and communicate. You see the world through an intercultural and global perspective.
Graduates, you are headed into lives rich with promise. Thank you for contributing to Pacific’s vibrant learning environment — you have left your mark here and made us even better.
Our faculty and staff deserve a special thanks on Commencement as well. They care so much about you, and pour their hearts into ensuring you receive the best education possible. Commencement is a wonderful day for everyone to enjoy the results of that hard but wonderful work.
I also thank the family members of our graduates, especially their parents, guardians, spouses and children. Getting to Commencement required no small sacrifice on your part, and your support made all the difference in your graduates’ success. Congratulations to you on this special day.
Finally, I send a special welcome to the members of the Class of 1965, back home to celebrate their 50th reunion. I can think of no better role models for our new graduates to demonstrate what is possible with a Pacific education. Welcome home!
Happy Commencement, graduates, and remember: Your relationship with Pacific is not ending, it’s just changing shape. Those of you at Pacific for the last four years witnessed the dedication of the Alex and Jeri Vereschagin Alumni House. Now that house is your home, and I cannot wait to welcome you back on Homecoming weekend in October.
Enjoy your wonderful success. Congratulations again!
