When you have a headache, there are things that you can do to make it more manageable: drink more water, use some ice, take a pain reliever or rest for a bit. If you break your leg, you would go to the doctor, and they would likely do some scans, maybe surgery and put you in a cast so you could heal.

The Pilots must have gotten their brooms out because they swept away the competition this week.
This week’s Pilot in the Spotlight is sophomore forward Taryn Ries, who has been tearing it up on the soccer field for the Pilots. Ries scored two goals against Oregon State, the winning goal versus North Dakota, a hat trick against San Diego to help win the team’s first conference game, one goal against St. Mary’s and a second hat trick against Pacific. She’s the first Pilot to have two hat tricks — meaning scoring three times in one game — since 2009.

The discussion around consent and cultivating respect in interpersonal relationships is deeply relevant to contemporary issues at our university and across the country. The importance of these issues is increasingly relevant and demands that we, as students and leaders, be educated. As our community’s discussion of consent develops and deepens, we strongly believe that we are morally called to further our education and continue learning.

On Wednesday evening, UP students and members of the community gathered to hear Fr. Daniel G.

“It’s October 3rd” — a line so many of us recognize, and a reality today. And since this year October 3rd has fallen on a Wednesday, the day we wear pink, it’s only fitting that I take this time to discuss why I think the Tina Fey classic, “Mean Girls,” is cinematic genius.
Editor’s note: The Beacon is taking a rare step in publishing an anonymous opinion. We are publishing anonymously at the request of the author, who is a female student at the University of Portland. We believe that publishing the story anonymously is a way to deliver an important perspective to our readers, while protecting the identity of a sexual assault survivor. If you have any questions about our opinion submission policy, we invite you to email the editor-in-chief at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was a little up and down this past week for the Pilots.

Another week and another Pilot in the Spotlight is upon us.

“Boeing Boeing,” a glamorous play set in the 1960’s, is full of shenanigans, hilarity and is the perfect study break during midterms madness. The UP Theater Department chose “Boeing Boeing” as one of their four fall plays to balance out the more political and serious issues that the department will tackle in later productions.
