A warm welcome from ASuop president:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome past, present and future Tigers and Tigers at heart to our third annual University of the Pacific Homecoming! Homecoming honors memories past and is a celebration of new beginnings.
There is an array of events dedicated to our students, alumni and parents. The Associated Students of University of the Pacific has partnered with various departments across campus including Pacific’s Alumni Association, Pacific Recreation and Pacific Athletics to bring a new twist on the traditional Homecoming experience.
This year we are debuting Tiger Olympics, which allows clubs and organizations to compete in tournament-style games. The winners of Tiger Olympics will have the benefit of providing a philanthropic gift to the organization of their choice.
In keeping with Tiger tradition, we are bringing back the Tiger Rally and Homecoming Parade. These activities create a bridge between students and the greater Stockton community. This year, one of our newer traditions, Tiger Rally, is again combined with basketball’s Midnight Mania. Tiger Rally is guaranteed to be a treat for all those involved. It spotlights men’s and women’s basketball teams, which provides us with a prelude to an exciting athletic year.
Also, this year our Homecoming Court will provide a special element to our celebration. Homecoming Court is based on merit, Pacific pride and community involvement. Look out for the Homecoming Royalty at the Parade and Tiger Rally.
The many events culminating this weekend include various alumni reunions, Taste of Pacific and even a Food Truck Frenzy. In addition, many beneficial networking opportunities will be available. I encourage students to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and experience that alumni have to offer.
It is my desire and privilege to thank our supportive and engaged parents and family members. It is a pleasure to welcome you and thank you for taking the time to visit Pacific and appreciate what it has to offer your students. I sincerely hope you enjoy the performances and events our students have prepared for you.
We can each celebrate our institution’s many advances and each student’s commitment to the gift of learning. Also, this is a time to congratulate alumni, parents and family members for their support of students and Pacific. Together we each bring a new light to Pacific pride. This weekend, let’s “Roar Through The Past, Present and Future.” Go Tigers!
