Inspired by his school-aged daughter who asked why there are so many science fairs but no literature fairs, Herman Asarnow, an English Professor at the University of Portland, founded the Northwest Undergraduate Conference on Literature (NUCL) in 2004. Over the last 15 years, the UP English Department, College of Arts and Sciences, Office of Admissions and the Provost’s Office have built NUCL into a nationally known conference.

With over 15 universities, three high schools and well over 50 students, the University of Portland will host the NUCL on Saturday, Mar. 24. Students from all over the United States will travel to campus to listen to those applicants selected to present their literary pieces of work.

Nguyen has worked at the University of Portland for six years. She immigrated to the United States from Vietnam in 1994 and worked a variety of jobs in Louisiana and Portland before coming to UP. In her home country, she was a high school teacher. She fondly remembers her college years and enjoys working at UP because it reminds her of that time — but with one difference: She did not have as much variety to choose from and as much to eat in her college dining hall.
As of March 20, Bitcoin’s worth hovers around $8,800, but this number is volatile, plunging some days and skyrocketing the next. The value of Bitcoin plunged in early February from $10,000 to $6,000, before rising to a high again at $11,000 in early March. Some UP students have gotten on board with investing in Bitcoin, and they now have to decide whether to sell or hold out as the price changes with their investments — in some cases, all of their savings — reasoning that it will pay off in the long run.

But first, compelled by her passion for service, Molly chose to spend a year in Haiti volunteering with the Friends of the Orphans. During her time there, Molly provided care and comfort to Haitian children that had been orphaned, abandoned and who were often physically disabled.
We all like to believe we're informed individuals, for the most part. We read the New Yorker. We skimm over headlines — we may even follow a few news stations on Twitter. Trying to maneuver the ever-changing waves of politics and world news, it can become hard to keep up sometimes; and sometimes, it's easier to shut the world out completely.
