The freshman class moved into the dorms at the University of Portland Aug. 25 with the traditional pomp and purple paint.
Students began moving into Lund Family Hall, University of Portland's newest residence hall, Tuesday. The dorm features gender neutral bathrooms and a number of larger rooms that can be expanded to "extended living" situations, where many students assigned to the uncompleted section of the hall are currently being housed. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of Fall Break in mid-October, according to Residence Life. -Photos by Hannah Baade

Brother Thomas, advisor for the men’s soccer team, didn’t waste a second hopping into the seat to get his head shaved. He was proud that so many of his soccer players joined to shave their heads for a good cause. He was smiling the entire time.
Jabari Newton, sophomore soccer player, seemed eager to shave his head. During the process, his huge smile was replaced with a shocked expression. His teammates surrounded him and took pictures. After seeing himself, he jokingly told his teammates that he will never go out again and instead focus on his academics.
Erik Edwardson, junior soccer player, was all smiles during his head shaving. It's hard to imagine anyone looking more serene whilst losing all of their locks, but Edwardson looked pretty content with his newfound baldness.
Kris Reaves, junior soccer player, seemed nervous and reluctant to shave his head. However, the team cheered encouragements the entire time.
The first to shave his head was junior soccer athlete Kienan Weekes. Weekes was visibly excited. He looked more ready than ever to sacrifice all those hair follicles.

Reid Baez, sophomore soccer player, looked apprehensive when getting his head shaved by teammate Paul Christensen. Christensen ended up shaving Baez' hair into a hair crown, similar to the flower crowns you might see at Coachella. Baez didn't don the crown for long, though. It was a shame; it would have been a great look for a summer music festival.
Matt LeProwse, freshman soccer player, was really excited to get his head shaved by his teammate Paul Christensen, junior. LeProwse stayed positive throughout the process. He also encouraged students walking by the event to shave their heads.
