University lifestyle is stressful to begin with. College students have faced a growing epidemic of depression and anxiety for years, attributed to a perfect storm of circumstances — the loneliness of leaving home and searching for a support group, financial debt, the uptick of high risk behaviors like binge drinking and substance abuse, and feeling exorbitant amounts of pressure to not only survive but flourish in their classes, extracurriculars, and jobs. Factor in a global pandemic, the forced enrollment in Zoom university and an economy that’s wavering at the precipice of a recession, and this semester may be more than college students are willing to put themselves through.
When talking about the whole country coming to a screeching halt in March, my friends refer to it as “back in quarantine.” They are talking about March, April and May, when the stay-at-home orders went into effect.

Regions of University Park and the University of Portland were without power for most of the day and had power restored at around 5:00 p.m. The Portland General Electric website at first attributed the outages in the 97203 area code to a vehicle accident, but now says there are multiple causes. They originally estimated that the power would be back by 10:30 p.m. tonight.
As an immunocompromised person, this pandemic has been incredibly taxing on my mental health, but not for the reasons you might think. Yes, staying home all the time can be a bit boring, but thankfully since March, I have had the company of my housemates who all also go to UP. The reason it has been so deeply stressful is because throughout this time, I have been terrified that I was going to die.
When people look back at the U.S. presidential election of 2020, there will be many reasons it stands out. There’s the record-breaking voter turnout. Key battleground states flipping to blue. The four days of anxious waiting for an official announcement. Joe Biden passing 270 electoral college votes, making him the next president of the United States with Kamala Harris as his vice president, the first woman and woman of color to hold the position.
On paper, junior Nick Hinson’s daily routine might not look very different from a normal school year — except that it takes place in its entirety within 173 square feet: his solitary Schoenfeldt double. He leaves this (very familiar) space only to get grab-and-go food from the Commons, or to work out at the gym, his hands washed and mask handy. And then, back to his room for a full day of classes.
When I was in the seventh grade, my English teacher told me that I had a gift for writing, and said that I was the most talented student she had ever seen in her 26 years of teaching. She said my writing was so phenomenal, so absolutely perfect, that she had submitted one of my essays to The Atlantic. Later that year, they published my essay.
After the exciting surprise character reveal at the end of last week’s episode that had my jaw on the floor, I went into Chapter 10 of The Mandalorian, “The Passenger”, with probably a bit too much anticipation and came out feeling underwhelmed. This episode didn’t acknowledge the cliffhanger of last week and dove into a new adventure.
The NCAA has selected Portland to host the 2024 Women’s Basketball Regional and 2026 Men’s Basketball First and Second Rounds, falling short of their goal to host the 2025 or 2026 NCAA women’s Final Four.
Elections are exhausting, and not just for the candidates. The 2020 election felt like endless months of phone call bombardment, attack ads and my eyes being completely glued to the TV. The whole spectacle suddenly ended in one week. The twists and turns have me exhausted, and returning to post-election life is more complicated than one might think.
University of Portland has joined thousands of colleges in tracking their COVID-19 cases, and has activated their COVID-19 dashboard despite previously stated intentions to delay it until spring semester due to the small number of students on campus.

The last thing Raphaelle LeBlanc expected to happen when she DM’d Megan Rapinoe last summer inviting her to a Pilot’s Talk was a response.
My first vivid memory of experiencing a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is from when I was about five or six years old. My mom was trying to get me ready for school and out the door, but I ended up being late to school. In fact, I wouldn’t even get out of the car when my mom dropped me off until a teacher bribed me with candy to go into the classroom. All this difficulty of getting me to school was because of a single sock.
As the nation soaks in the results of the nail biting presidential election last week, more local aspects of election night can easily be overlooked. As the eyes of the American people were glued on a map of electoral votes, state and local governments were preparing to implement new regulations.
As the weather turns colder and the pandemic fatigue grows stronger, there are increasing concerns that people are heading inside to gather with family and friends and leaving their masks behind, despite the heightened risk of infection. This comes as Oregon and other states across the country careen towards record-breaking numbers of new daily cases. On Sunday, the United States officially reached 10 million cases since the start of the pandemic.

I, as well as many others, downloaded TikTok to cure some quarantine boredom and ended up spending way too much of my free time on the app. But as I mindlessly scroll through my For You Page, I see post after post in which people joke about the pains of online school, share their stories regarding mental illness, or offer advice for dealing with emotional and academic stress. Mental health seems to be a common thread on this app. And this is a relatively new phenomenon. Social media used to be a place to post your most edited photos depicting only the best parts of your life, but TikTok is filled with a kind of honesty regarding mental health that I haven’t seen online before.
