It’s the first day of classes and freshmen might already be exhausted. After days of endlessly repeating their name, where they’re from, their major and what dorm they live in, freshmen orientation weekend can seem like a distant, hazy dream.
Few things in this world make me angry. I have had a good life and have no right to have anger in my heart. Yesterday, however, I experienced something that infuriated me. I was in the middle of having a heated conversation with my roommate about finances, and he said something that struck me as argent, conceded and ignorant. He said to me “man up!” I believe this phrase is one of the things that pinpoints what is wrong with our “modern world.” This attacked my sexuality, he was insinuating that I was gay. What is wrong with being gay?

Last fall consisted of many highs for Pilot athletics, like a second podium finish for the men’s cross country team and another winning season for the men’s soccer team.
Nervous excitement filled the air this weekend as the class of 2022 moved into the dorms and participated in orientation activities. Campus was filled with fresh new faces, the sound of purple bins rolling on the pavement and laminated signs showing freshmen where to meet with their home base groups. The Beacon spoke to resident assistants (RA's) from each dorm and asked them to reflect on their freshman orientation and how they’ve changed since then.

Students coming back to campus after four months are returning to the sounds of drills, hammers and saws. Construction crews make their way around the steel skeleton of what will be Dundon-Berchtold Hall. The smell of wet paint lingers in the halls of St. Mary’s, which is in the midst of a major remodeling project. Bulldozers and backhoes occasionally drown out the sound of cargo ships passing through the Willamette River.
In the weeks since the Wallys there have been many opinions written about what happened. Many people have been angry. Many have called for action. Most are upset with how things were handled. Some however, have looked at it from a different angle. They’ve questioned why more students in attendance didn’t take action. Some have encouraged us all to take action in situations like this and not just rely on people in power like University of Portland President Fr. Mark Poorman and other members of the University of Portland administration to step in. Some people have even praised UP for the steps they took later and said it was enough.
Watching my close friends celebrate with their parents and hearing how proud their parents were of them was conflicting. I was filled with jealousy and sadness when I was supposed to be celebrating my accomplishments.
At any age, losing a parent is devastating. I lost my mom when I was 16, and my dad unexpectedly passed away during finals week of my junior year. It was the hardest, most heart wrenching thing to experience; but through it, I gained valuable insight.
Reflecting has been an exercise I’ve found myself doing quite frequently these past few weeks, as I’ve followed the articles and opinion pieces in response to the Wally Awards event on campus. After everything that’s been said, I still support Fr. Poorman, the administration, the staff, the students and the University of Portland.
