Sammie Van Norstrand is used to challenges. In her hometown of Littleton, Colorado, she loves the challenges of hiking and mountain climbing. This past summer, she summited Mt. Bierstadt at an altitude of 14,065 feet.
But nothing could have prepared her for the greatest challenge of her life so far. In January of this year, as she got off her flight from Colorado to Portland and turned her phone off of airplane mode, she received a message from her mom: her results from the doctors were in, and she had breast cancer.

This week, two events will be held in The Bauccio Commons that may seem well-timed in light of last week’s protest against Fr. Paul Scalia.
On Tuesday at 7:15 p.m., Jennifer Freyd, a professor of psychology at the University of Oregon, will speak at the event, “Campus Sexual Violence: Moving from Institutional Betrayal to Institutional Courage.”
On Wednesday at 7:15 p.m., students and UP staff can unpack Freyd’s talk and discuss how they relate to it at the event “Building Courage UP.” The event will include panelists and speakers from a number of groups on campus, including Title IX team, Active Minds, Students Against Sexual Assault and ASUP, among others.
More than 2,000 miles from The Bluff, the group walked into a room in Birmingham, Alabama. They heard shouts of racial slurs, including the N-word, through overhead speakers. They saw an illuminated Klu Klux Klan robe in the corner.
Further along, a display showed two water fountains. One fountain, labeled “white,” stood tall, clean and properly functioning, while the other, labeled “colored,” was rust-stained.
These were the sights and sounds of exhibits in the Civil Rights Institute that a group of University of Portland students visited while on the Civil Rights Immersion, sponsored by UP’s Moreau Center for Service and Justice.
The Portland Pilots fell to the Loyola Marymount University Lions in five sets in their second conference game. Portland is now 12-2 and 0-2 for the West Coast Conference.
The 15th ranked Pilots improved to 6-0-2 on the year with a 2-1 win on Friday at Merlo Field against the Oregon State Beavers.
A former University of Portland chaplain is listed in a report detailing 18 priests “credibly accused” of sexual abuse of minors in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend in Indiana.
Rev. James Trepanier, a Holy Cross priest, served as University chaplain from 1964-1967.
On Sept. 18, Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades released the names of the priests. Rhoades vowed to release the names last month in response to a grand jury report in Pennsylvania that accused 300 priests of sexual abuse of minors.
Not many students at UP may know Professor Lara-Zuzan Golesorkhi. New to campus this year, she is a visiting assistant political science professor.
But in the nonprofit business world, Golesorkhi is a big deal. When she was in her PhD program at New School for Social Research in New York in 2015, Golesorkhi came up for the idea for her nonprofit company, called With or Without. The nonprofit aims to assist women living in Germany with a Muslim-migration background who are trying to get a job.
In their first home conference match in front of over 500 fans, the Portland Pilots’ 12-0 record was snapped with a 3-0 loss to the Pepperdine Waves.
The controversy surrounding the Women's US Open and Serena William's captivated the nation earlier this month. The UP women's tennis team's head coach and two players joined in on the conversation to give some insights into what exactly happened, they're reactions to the controversy and how the media has covered it.
Hundreds of students lined the sidewalks outside the Chapel of Christ the Teacher Wednesday night for a silent demonstration protesting the appearance of Fr. Paul Scalia, who was the keynote speaker at a dinner following UP’s annual Red Mass.
Scalia, who is the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, has triggered controversy for some things he has said and written about homosexuality, as well as his leadership in an organization called Courage. The organization encourages people with same-sex attraction to be chaste.
My name is Kevin Jones and I am an Assistant Professor of Social Work here at the University of Portland. I just want to say a few things about why I stood this evening with hundreds of students and faculty outside of the Chapel in protest of Fr. Paul Scalia being invited as a featured speaker for the annual Red Mass dinner.

The Associated Students of University of Portland (ASUP) is organizing a silent demonstration outside the Chapel of Christ the Teacher tonight at 6:15 to protest this year’s Red Mass speaker, Fr. Paul Scalia, who has been involved in a group criticized for being anti-LGBTQ. He has also written that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”
Before I rub anyone the wrong way, let me say that as active members of society we need to constantly question the systems or practices that are in place. Not to sound overly dramatic, but it’s the way to move forward. To grow and learn from what’s working and what isn’t. So, please just bear with me until the end of this piece.
It's been a remarkable fall sports season so far for the Pilots. The hot streak continued this past weekend. Here's a look at how the Pilots are doing so far.
The hardest part of coming to college for the first time may not be leaving your parents, your house or your friends. For many, the hardest part can be leaving your dog. (Or, for those who aren’t dog people, leaving your cat, or fish or any other furry friend.)
Studies show that owning a pet can be good for you, and help reduce anxiety and loneliness. Some UP students don’t wait to graduate, buy a house and get a job before they have their dream pet. Some bring their furry best friend to college with them or adopt pets while they’re still students.

This week’s Pilot in the Spotlight is women’s soccer player junior Larkin Russell, who was named West Coast Conference Player of the Week for her stellar performance this past weekend.
