Dear Graduates, Families, and Friends of PUC:
The weekend of June 16 to 18, 2017, will be the high point of the college year.
With ceremony and celebration, we will honor our graduates, and remember what we stand for. From our modest beginnings in 1882 to the present day, Pacific Union College has affirmed life-changing Christian education.
Please explore these pages to find detailed information about speakers, receptions, and other activities. You will notice something new this time—a special badge of honor: “Parent of 2017 Graduate.” This is especially fitting this year, since Commencement takes place on Father’s Day.
I look forward to meeting you on the beautiful Howell Mountain, “where nature and revelation unite in education.”
