Homecoming 2017: October 20-22

Reconnect. Relive. Inspire.

During Homecoming 2016, the Pacific community gathered together to relive college memories. From strolls across Knoles Lawn to conversations with classmates, alumni remembered the moments and the people that made their time at the university so memorable.

But the best thing about the University of the Pacific experience is that it doesn’t end after graduation. Alumni from different generations had the opportunity to make new Pacific memories at Homecoming 2016. From a volleyball win in the Spanos Center to Food Trucks and Wine Tasting in Janssen-Lagorio Gymnasium, the entire weekend brought out the best of Tiger Pride.

Thanks to all who participated! We hope you’ll join us next year to celebrate more Pacific moments. Save the date for Homecoming 2017, which will take place Oct. 20-22.
