About Pacific:

Pacific has three unique campuses across northern California. The largest campus is found in Stockton in the heart of the Central Valley. The 175-acre campus is regularly ranked as one of the most beautiful college campuses in America. As the only college on the West Coast that uses collegiate gothic architecture, the Pacific campus conjures up images of the brick-and-ivy campuses seen at traditional East Coast colleges, and the soothing tones of the carillon bells help create a truly special work environment. The campus also is home to the Faye Spanos Concert Hall, where employees can enjoy the work of students from the Conservatory of Music and guest artists. Employees also can enjoy watching Division I athletic competitions. Pacific is a member of the West Coast Conference and has 17 D-I sports.

 

The university also has campuses in Sacramento and San Francisco. The Sacramento campus is in the Oak Park neighborhood, just a few blocks from new stores, restaurants, cafes and apartments created by former Mayor Kevin Johnson. In San Francisco, Pacific is housed in a state-of-the-art building in the heart of downtown on Fifth Street, walking distance from world-class shopping, dining and cultural venues.
