ASUP passes resolution to get free menstrual products on campus

The Associated Students of the University of Portland (ASUP) passed a resolution on Feb. 10 to begin a pilot program/trial called “Pilots Matter Period,” where free menstrual products will be provided in five buildings on campus. The program will begin Feb. 18 in the first-floor bathrooms of Franz Hall, the library and Buckley Center, as well as Dundon-Berchtold’s gender-neutral bathroom and the women’s bathroom at Pilot House for this spring semester.

This year's Dance of the Decades theme is disco. Pre-sale for tickets will be held on Friday, Jan. 31 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. in front of Franz Hall for 20% off the standard price.

Dance of the Decades returns with disco fever

Get ready to get groovy and boogie on the dance floor at this year’s Dance of the Decades on Friday, Feb. 7. This year’s theme is all about disco, so dust off that pair of go-go boots or those bell-bottom pants you might have seen in the thrift store. While disco attire is encouraged, students are welcome to dress up in any decade they prefer.
