WELCOME BACK

September 4th, 2012 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

Hello! Welcome back to school! I hope your summer was phenomenal, your first week back on campus wasn’t too tiring, and your three day weekend was relaxing. As I enter my THIRD YEAR of college, classes are getting more important and interesting so that’s something to look forward to! For current students, I hope the leaf blowers and lawn mowers aren’t waking you up too early and you’re getting a head start on your studying! For prospective students, if you plan on visiting our campus we all look forward to seeing your smiling faces. Have a good day!

Time really flies when you’re having fun…STUDYING.  I don’t know about you all, but my weekdays have been full will lovely visits to our library-open 24 hours! It’s the last month before finals and professors are getting ready and making sure their students are studying by giving us tests and quizzes!  We can’t have summer without finals though-work hard, play harder, right? :| While I’m not studying or sleeping, I’ve been cooking, trying to cook.  Sushi, guava cake, teriyaki chicken have all been on the menu this past week at my apartment, as well as mac and cheese and oatmeal :P .  If you are in a studying rut try cooking/eating!  It will rejuvenate your brain power!  Or try rearranging your room and spark the inner designer in you!

It’s only Tuesday, but I know you all can’t wait for the weekend!  This weekend, we will be hosting Profile Day where prospective students come and learn what Pacific is all about.  Make sure you’re friendly and you say hi!  Also, this weekend, Pacific will be having its annual Vagina Monologues showing in Raymond Great Hall. Pacific is also shuttling a group of students to a San Jose Sharks game-if you’re interesting go to the counter in the front of the UC and ask if there are still tickets available.   Go and support your Tigers: there is a softball game this weekend here, against Cal State Northridge; our softballers have been doing really good so go and see for yourselves.  To round off your diverse weekend experience, support Pacific’s music students as they give their Junior and Senior recitals.  On Sunday, a Saxophone and Trumpet player will be displaying their amazing talents!

 

Have a good week and a better weekend,

Hana :D

Hellooooo,
I hope your Spring Break was FABULOUS! I hope you all were safe & smart :)
Time to get back into school mode; it’s a difficult task…but it must be done! As students are counting down the months, days, weeks, hours, minutes, seconds till sweet Summer vacation, our campus faculty has been busy getting things ready for upcoming events. Here in the Admissions office, we are checking in prospective students, showing them how great Pacific is. Administrators, as well as Seniors, are getting ready for GRADUATION. I am trying to stay ahead of the game and start studying for upcoming exams (key word= trying :| ).
Continue to support your Tiger athletes and Conservatory as they display their talents!
Stay warm this week..it’s supposed to rain :(

February…already?!

January 31st, 2012 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

We have just entered the fourth week of Spring 2012 semester. No big deal…who am I kidding? VERY BIG DEAL. We have midterms and papers coming up, it’s beginning to get harder to wake up for those 8am classes, and winter break seems like it was a dream. Is my Sophomore year really almost over! Time flies when you’re studying. It has been nice to catch up with old friends before everything gets too hectic.
For those of you who are looking to take a break and entertain yourself look out for our sports games! Also, look for Gospelfest, many concerts from the conservatory, our annual Rocky Horror Picture Show, and India.Aire is coming to campus. Those are just a few things to look forward to in the next couple of weeks. For our social greek life, the new pledges just crossed and have become official sisters and brothers. Congratulations!
Valentines day is right around the corner ;) Hope all of you have something planned, even if it is just laying in bed watching movies or studying for a major exam. If you haven’t noticed, we have had many large tours coming through campus. Say hi to the future students of Pacific!

Welcome Back!

I anticipated break so much and now, in the blink of an eye, it’s over and we’re back at school!  This semester is going to be busy, but thankfully, we have a couple breaks- including spring break! Classes have just begun here (unless you’re a hard-working Pharmacy student, they’ve been here for an extra week) and students are displaying mixed emotions.  We have the students who are excited to start new classes and then the students who are walking like zombies trying to get back into school mode.  Nonetheless, I’m sure we will all be good tigers and do fabulous this semester :)

Here on campus we have a few new things coming up in January.  Tomorrow, President Eibeck will host a town hall meeting to discuss where Pacific’s funds are going.  She will answer questions and everyone is encouraged to come and voice their concerns.  There will also be a Martin Luther King Jr. Peace and Justice Awards Luncheon where Pacific students and staff get recognized for their positive behavior.   Also, go and support your Tiger Athletics!  This semester, look for Baseball, Softball, Men’s Volleyball, Women’s Swimming, and Men’s Tennis.

Hope you all are finding a smooth transition into this semester!

November at Pacific

November 17th, 2011 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

Hi everyone!

November brings a couple of new things here to Pacific.  Here at University of the Pacific, there are a couple organizations supporting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  There is the Up Til Dawn group that has raised $3,808 towards the hospital and our Tri Deltas had a fundraiser to support them as well!  Keep it up Pacific!  Our sports teams have been busy too.  Swimming for both men and women, basketball for both men and women, women’s volleyball, men’s water polo, and women’s soccer have all been doing a great job representing our physical and mental skills across the country. Go out there and support your fellow Tigers!!!

A few random things on my mind this November…No shave November?  Good luck with your growing beards :) and our weather has been quite pleasant these days.  I was expecting rain for days by now, but it is actually not too hot and not too cold :)   Also, Happy Thanksgiving!!! For all those who are going home, have safe travels and for those who are staying in Stockton, On Thanksgiving day, Pacific will be hosting their own dinner at the Lair from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.  If you are interested contact the Housing and Greek Life Office to reserve your spot by November 21st.  Most importantly, eaaaat uuuuuppppp!

Also, Preview day is this weekend! Expect to see many high school prospective students walking around our beautiful campus!

Have a happy day/week/month/year!
SMILE :)

October!

October 24th, 2011 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

Hi,
I hope everyone did well on their midterms if they took them, if not, good luck! October has been a fun month, it’s nice to see the leaves changing color and the weather cooling down. As a sophomore, it’s interesting to compare how I felt last year to how I am feeling this year. I’m definitely not as homesick and I manage my time a lot better. I have learned to expand my social circle and get involved in the community. However, I’m never quite ready for all the class work and I sometimes find myself daydreaming about the relaxing Summer days. *siiiigh. On a brighter note, it’s almost Halloween! This week Pacific is holding its annual Safe Trick-or-Treat where we invite families from the communities to take tours of our campus, participate in games held by various on campus organizations, and take part in trick-or-treating in a safe manner. Come out, dress up, and participate in a fun campus activity! There are also a couple of events going on on-campus to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. TriDelta will be hosting Delta Desserts where you can buy a ticket for $5 and eat as much dessert as you would like at their house. Also, Pacific’s Up Til Dawn organization will be having their big party, there will be games and prizes given to students who have registered online and raised money for the hospital.

Prospective students who are applying for early application will have all of their paperwork turned in in a few weeks! Isn’t that crazy..we were all once in their shoes! Now, registration for classes for Spring semester is this week! Are you all ready? Time is seriously flying by so I’m trying to live in the moment as best as I can!

Be safe this Halloween weekend and have fun,
Hana :)

Hello Pacific People

October 6th, 2011 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

Hope your semesters are going well.  It seems like September moved by way too quickly, we just started classes and now it’s time for midterms!  October is here! Fall Break starts for me officially at 5pm!  The seasons are definitely changing, this past week’s low 60s weather was quite a change from the high 90s we had last week.

Pacific’s students have been busy bees lately.  For California Coastal Cleanup Day the American Society of Civil Engineers cleaned up the Calaveras River.  Carlos Muñoz Jr., a Chicano Studies Expert, came to campus to help celebrate Latino Heritage month.  Pacific’s St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital-Up Til Dawn organization just had their kickoff event to help spread the word about raising money.  Lastly, bids have just gone out for the different sororities/fraternities on campus- good luck to all the pledges!  On the sports side, look out for Men’s Water Polo and Golf and Women’s Soccer, Field Hockey, and Volleyball.  Go and support your fellow Tigers!!!  There are some fun things coming up here at Pacific!  The annual cardboard regatta with be on October 14th, held at Kjeldsen Pool from 4:00pm-6:00pm.  If you haven’t been to one, you should go!  It’s a really funny event to see how smart and creative these Engineering students are.  Parent Family Weekend is also coming up on the 20th!  Invite your families to show off your Pacific pride :)

Have a fun break and good luck on midterms!

Hello!

October 6th, 2011 by Hana Imai in Uncategorized · No Comments

Hi everyone!

My first blog entry!  I’m almost famous!  It’s nice to be back at Pacific!  I’m Hana and I am a sophomore studying Speech-Language Pathology.  I’m from the small island of Kaua’i in Hawai’i.  I chose Pacific because I felt that the small community would be something that would make transitioning into college life easier.  I’m happy with my decision because I feel like the environment has allowed me to create good relationships with my professors and as a result I feel like I have been successful J.

There have been a few changes around campus over summer, new food to eat at the Lair, the Alumni house has finished construction, and we got some fancy white chairs out on the UC lawn.   Sophomore year has been really great so far, I’m not walking into the wrong classrooms (I did that last year-embarrassing!), I’m in the McCaffery apartments, so I get to make my own food, and my classes are interesting and not too stressful….yet!  Pacific has been up to a few things lately… We hosted a Powwow so our campus was filled with music and the smell of good food.  We also had an event called Beat the Heat where we had waterslides and other water activities so the students and community could try to cool down.

Hope you find a fun-filled and fairly stress-free semester J
