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.
The six student ambassadors from UP are Brenna Chapman, Emily Holguin, Ezedin Jabr, Nick Krautscheid, Julianna Oliphant and Alex Peterson. The three faculty ambassadors are Andrew Nuxoll, Amber Vermeesch and John Watzke.
In front of a crowd of 4,557 people, the Portland Pilots fell to the Gonzaga Bulldogs 95-79, completing the regular season sweep for the Bulldogs.
On a weekday morning, Franz Hall is a busy hub of students socializing, grabbing bagels and running up and down stairs to class. A short walk away from Franz is Buckley Center, a warm, older building with desks close together and slippery floors on rainy days. This well-loved building hosts a variety of art, science and nursing classes. Students go from class to The Commons, where the warm smell of pizza and the sound of coffee orders greet them as soon as they walk through the doors.
On Wednesday, University of Portland announced Jeff Baxter, an assistant with the Pilots volleyball team for the past two years and head coach of the beach volleyball team, as the new head volleyball coach of the Portland Pilots.
Since Trump was inaugurated…
This past weekend marked one year since the president was sworn into office. Since President Donald Trump took over the Oval Office, he and his administration have altered or done away with many policies of the Obama era.
This Thursday, the Pilots will gear up to play one of their biggest games of the year, facing off against the perennial WCC champion Gonzaga Bulldogs for the second time this year.
After President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, a number of U.S. states and municipalities came together to form the United States Climate Alliance, with each member promising to adhere to the goals of the Paris Agreement and thus combat climate change. For environmentalists like myself, seeing the formation of this alliance encouraged me to believe that decades of environmental progress would not be thrown to the wayside so easily.
Students from the University of Portland were among those frightened individuals affected by this “human error.” About 330 undergraduate students have Hawaii listed as their state of residency.
The crosswalk in front of the University of Portland's main entrance has a tumultuous history. It has been the site of over six collisions since November 2016, the most recent of which injured a student last November. It can be hard to keep track of the saga of events surrounding the hazardous strip of concrete, so here is a timeline of events over the last year and a half to fill you in on anything you might have missed.
Some professors gathered in Buckley Auditorium Thursday to hear from a consultant hired by the University to address the ongoing concerns surrounding faculty pay. Frank Casagrande, a compensation consultant, met with about 25 faculty to explain his company’s approach for determining a sustainable plan for paying professors. The event was organized by the Faculty Compensation Task Force.
The Portland Pilots fell to the San Diego Toreros tonight, 60-75. The Pilots looked outmatched offensively right from the tip-off and ended up being down 7-20 at one point before the first quarter. Things didn’t get much better for the Pilots from there, as every time they seemed to be making a comeback, San Diego would respond with a strong offensive play or a crucial defensive stop. Turnovers proved to be one of the major problems for the Pilots this evening, as they ended the game with 18 in total.
Back to school means back to papers, tests and reading quizzes for those readings you never actually do. Back-to-school blues and rain might have you down, but coming back to school also means coming back to school events and Portland fun-tivies. Don’t sit around and cry about break being over — head out this weekend to the activities fair or a cool concert.
Although “no” is a wonderful word (Only two letters say so much!), UP students are often reluctant to break out the big “no.” As our professors have often lamented, UP students are generally impossibly polite and afraid to say the things that need to be said if they aren’t exactly nice. But there are times when we need to put our big kid pants on and say it like we mean it, because we do.
As a monthly, and often weekly, customer at Salt & Straw for the last three years, I have established a deep love for every waffle cone-scented experience. Throughout these last three years, the volatile nature of young adulthood has left me heartbroken, thrilled and impatient with uncertainty. Whatever the emotion or question, Salt & Straw has always been the solution.
