University of the Pacific
Drawing on its rich legacy as the oldest chartered university in California, Pacific is a student-focused, comprehensive educational institution that produces outstanding graduates who are prepared for personal and professional success. Our student body thrives in Pacific’s small classes and dynamic cultural environment, while our distinguished alumni are transforming their communities every day.
University of the Pacific is a nationally ranked university with three distinct campuses united under one common goal: to educate and prepare the leaders of tomorrow through intensive academic study, experiential learning, and service to the community. Our Stockton campus is home to seven schools and colleges, with more than 80 majors and programs of study. Pacific also has the McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento and the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Undergraduates make up more than half of the total University population, with 3,810 undergraduates enrolled for the 2014-2015 academic year. Pacific students benefit from small class sizes with an average class size of 19 and student-faculty ratio of 14:1. While 93 percent of Pacific students come from California, 22 other states and 30 foreign countries are also represented. (This information comes from the University of the Pacific website.)
