Come cheer on our Sunbird basketball teams and hang out with other alumni!
We are starting a new tradition by inviting all alumni to "orange out" the Special Events Center—everyone is encouraged to wear orange in support of our Sunbird teams. Contact your former classmates...dorm-mates...teammates...collegium-mates, and encourage them to meet you there. We will have prize drawings and an alumni hospitality room full of food, fellowship and fun.

Keeping FPU an affordable investment
To keep students and families investing in higher education, FPU continues to hold tuition below the national average and increase services students need to succeed.
“A high-quality private education can be affordable,” said Stephen Varvis, vice president for enrollment management. “Fresno Pacific has the faculty, academic programs, facilities and financial aid to make this happen.”
Enrollment of 3,603 marks 51 percent increase in three years

When I was in fourth grade my society integrated: five black students were bussed to my school to blend seamlessly with 500 white kids.
To make our new classmates comfortable, the whole school gathered outside to welcome them. Our principal made a speech. Shy by nature, I remember thinking that if I were one of those kids I’d get back on the bus.
