The Spirit of Unity


John Howard ’72 and Gary Reynolds ’72 were among the last to see Boxer on campus in 1969 — and John has made it his mission for the past several years to bring Boxer home. Together, they share what Boxer Spirit means to them.

Home At Last

The original Boxer, missing these past 55 years, took a mini-tour of what's new at his Pacific home. He's excited to explore more of Pacific's campuses and meet new generations of students and alumni!

"Are those scorch marks? Not sorry to have missed the 1975 Marsh Hall fire!"


"That is NOT where I left this building!"


"A whole new campus in Hillsboro and health professions programs?!? I knew Pacific alumni were destined for great things!"

Boxer. Is. Back!

The Chinese qilin statue known as Boxer has symbolized Pacific University’s heart and soul for more than a century.

Even when the statue went missing in 1969, the Boxer Spirit has never wavered. 

But now, after 55 years, the original Boxer has made its way home to Pacific! Check back later today for the behind-the-scenes story of how it happened.

Celebrate the return of Boxer with your gift today and help the Boxer Spirit live on for future generations.
