Life Pacific University welcomed over 300 people on campus for New Student Orientation on the San Dimas campus, with over 100 new students and their families joining the Warrior family. This incoming class is LPU’s largest post-pandemic and the university is thrilled to usher in a new season of the institution during our Centennial Year.
As students moved into the Residence Halls, commuters gathered to connect on campus, and staff, faculty, and leaders met the new members of the LPU community, the campus came alive with life that has been deeply missed. Parents were able to pray over their students at the Dedication Service and the new Warriors started off their journey at LPU right — through City Serve.
Every year, City Serve is a crucial part of NSO weekend. LPU believes in living like Jesus, so there is a scheduled time with each incoming class to go out and serve our community, bringing the hands and feet of Jesus to those near us. This aligns beautifully with LPU’s verse of the year, Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”.
Our students were able to model servant-hearted leadership at McKinley Children’s Center, Sornise Christian School, Charter Oak Mobile Home Estates, Shepherd’s Pantry, and Chloie’s Cottage Senior Living Facility. It is always an honor to represent Christ and LPU in the city of San Dimas and beyond.
In addition, both our Warrior Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams played their first home games of the season, with a packed stand of fans ready to cheer them on this year.
The new academic year will be filled with life, service, and expectancy for what God will do on the San Dimas campus of Life Pacific University as we continue to remain committed to developing transformational leaders prepared to serve God in the Church, the workplace, and the world.
