Students often feel uneasy when partaking in cultural or racial discussions. But it’s more perturbing for a student of color to be in a room filled with predominantly white peers while discussing racial and diversity issues. It’s okay if you feel discomfort.
We put together your February events calendar so you don't have to.
The Beacon applauds The State News for telling the truth even when it’s hard. There are a lot of misconceptions about student media and the kind of power it can wield, the kind of independence and autonomy we are largely lucky to have. We never want to have to write an editorial like The State News’. Our hope is always that the leaders of our university hold themselves to the highest possible professional and moral standards. But it’s important to address that we work for no one but ourselves on behalf of the student body. If the situation arises, The Beacon will hold administrators accountable in the same way.
The all-accessible gender-neutral bathroom count on campus is now at four, with two additional restrooms opening up on the first floor of Buckley Center earlier this week.

Many common New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, hitting the gym, or going on highly restrictive diets. But instead of trying to be thinner or achieve a certain look, what if everyone made a New Year’s resolution to simply embrace the bodies that they have?
On Thursday, Feb. 1, the Health and Counseling Center will host a screening of “Embrace” at 7 p.m. in the Mehling ballroom. A group discussion about body image will follow the screening.
Tucked away in the corner of the Beauchamp Center is the office of a program that many University of Portland students may have heard about, but don’t know enough about: the Outdoor Pursuits Program.
Every college student has heard a stereotype about their major. “Oh, so you really like math right?” “Oh, that’s the easy major.” “What are you going to do with a major like that?” Even if you are in the discipline of your dreams, it can be hard to deal with common stereotypes (and misconceptions) about your major.
In this video, we asked students at UP for the most common stereotypes they hear about their major.
When the pool was removed, there was an outcry on campus to bring back a new one. That’s why when my fellow ASUP Senator Katie Coughlin and I sat down last semester to brainstorm ideas for our Athletics Committee to work on, bringing back a pool was our number one priority.
A variety of math, engineering, and nursing majors have told me countless times, “You have it so easy,” upon learning I am a communication studies major.
The flu this year is reported to be particularly nasty. I mean, besides the fact that having your body taken over by fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle or body aches, headache and fatigue is never really not nasty, this year’s flu is nasty on top of that nasty. How many times can I write nasty in one paragraph? Six. Six times. The devil’s number, because the flu is that n-a-s-t-y. (Okay, I guess that’s seven, but you get the point).
Friday, January 26, 2018 marks the 318th anniversary of the most recent monster earthquake on the Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ). In the past 6,000 years or so, these quakes of magnitude 8 or 9 have occurred every 202 years, on average. Only once in that period of time has the interval between quakes exceeded 250 years, so the pressure in the CSZ fault has been growing for a very long time.
I don’t know how to respond when people tell me I am a good friend. I’m not writing this to be humble. I really don’t know what to say. All my life, I’ve assumed that it was only customary for someone to want to be a good friend to others. But I can openly tell you now from experience that not everyone will be a good friend to you, and that is okay.
Today, many people believe hip-hop is as good as it has ever been. However, just because a song has loud, hard-hitting beats and corny lyrics doesn’t mean that song is great hip-hop or even mediocre hip-hop. I believe, no, I know that the “golden age” of hip-hop has come and gone.
