University of the Pacific’s Student Investment Fund climbs to $3 million

An investment fund managed by University of the Pacific students that routinely outperforms Wall Street indicators reached a monumental benchmark of $3 million.

The Student Investment Fund portfolio – valued at roughly $2.5 million just a year ago – is managed by students in Pacific’s Eberhardt School of Business and is one of the largest student-run funds in the western United States.

The SIF hit $3 million for the first time in early October, but market fluctuations caused the fund to dip below that benchmark. The fund returned to the $3 million mark this month.

Spring into fun at Micke Grove Zoo Camp!

Spring into fun at Micke Grove Zoo Camp!

San Joaquin County, CA – This March, Micke Grove Zoo is offering its first public Spring Zoo Camp experience for children ages 5 through 10. Campers will spring into fun as we use our imaginations and the plants and animals living in Micke Grove Zoo and Park to explore the different places animals call “home.” Whether it is a frosty mountain peak or the humid heat of a rainforest jungle, we’ll be questing after some of the most unique animal habitats in the world.

Campers will venture across the oak woodlands in search of squirrels, galls and forest surprises; dive into the world of inland water bodies springing to life with microscopic creatures; climb the ladder of the rainforest canopies; safari across the sands in search of life in the desert; and explore the mysteries of the deep dark ocean. No other local adventure could ever compare!

Community Business Bank's ‘Casual Fridays' Results in Generous Donations to Local Food Banks

Community Business Bank's ‘Casual Fridays' Results in Generous Donations to Local Food Banks

Community Business Bank employees are busy collecting thousands of pounds of food to donate to local food banks as part of a year-round giving campaign called "Food Bank Fridays." The campaign started a few years ago when Community Business Bank employees requested permission to dress casually on Fridays.  While management could have simply allowed jeans to be worn at work, the request for “casual Fridays” turned into a light bulb moment.

“Our management team and the bank’s Community Foundation Committee agreed to the idea with one stipulation: Employees can dress casually on Fridays as long as they bring in at least one item to benefit local food banks,” said John DiMichele, CEO, Community Business Bank.
