The University of Portland officially announced that it would move online on Thursday, March 12. The decision came on the heels of swathes of universities across the nation choosing to empty their dorms, cancel their events and shuffle their students into Zoom classes. For most, school moving online was not a surprise.
Even in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, business goes on for Jim Etzel and his organization Sport Oregon, mostly as usual.
Sophomore marketing major Isabel Cornejo woke up on March 12 to dozens of text messages from her study abroad program and multiple missed calls from her mother at her host family’s house in Granada, Spain.

But on Jan 4. after the first two 2019-20 conference games, Hogland had had enough and officially left.
