In the upcoming Fall 2011 issue of Multnomah magazine due to hit mailboxes as early as 12/10 we had students write a special series of articles about student life through the decades. The first two of these articles focus on the 1940's and1960's. They also found great photos from the archives - there were far too many to put in the Magazine, so we decided to post this special gallery here.

Yes, we know we put "history" in the title twice. That's because there's the real history that consists of a history of First Nation people and public proclamations of calls to be thankful from - of all entitities - the US Government.
Also, there's the MU Blog "history" of Thanksgiving posts.

We ran across an essay at Inside Higher Ed that was written after the author read the new book titled The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age. It begs many questions of those who consider themselves both academic and an Evangelical. We're pretty sure our faculty fit this profile and that our alumni have an opinion on the matter.
Diamond Anniversary Web Update
As you know, Multnomah is in the midst of her 75th Anniversary and we have many exciting things in the works during this season.

Normally we don't set out to embarrass our beloved leader (at least not on purpose!), but this year we're taking the leap. Everybody knows what Multnomah University President Dr. Daniel R. Lockwood looks like. If you've seen this blog at all the last couple of years, you'd think he's practically a movie star with his Conversations with Dr. Dan YouTube video series. Well, today we're going to look a little at the man behind the title.

The following is the letter the Multnomah student body sent to their brothers and sisters at New York Theological Seminary after the September 11th, 2001 attacks. The letter accompanied a banner with many handwritten notes from students on it. We pray still that those affected at NYTS will grow in their faith and rely on Jesus more during this difficult anniversary.
Used goods will turn into prized goods as 12 Multnomah University students design three dorm rooms using only items from The Salvation Army Family Stores. Beginning in August, The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) will be partnering with these students in a competition called "Design a Dorm Room on a Budget." With a budget of $250 per team, three teams of students will head to local Salvation Army Family Stores to design a creative dorm room. Read the rest of this entry »

Spring cleaning is upon some departments at Multnomah. After being around for 75 years (58 at the current campus) a lot of old surprises can pop up.
Recently, in the back of a closet we ran across an original, hand-sewn banner for "Multnomah School of the Bible". It has a logo that was in use during the 1980's and 1990's.

"I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times. We have to be faithful in our jobs, but it’s the Lord who recruits for us."
With the words above as her admonishment, Admissions Counselor Lisa Hezmalhalch sent us an email with a word of encouragement via a blog post from a student who will be starting at Multnomah in the TESOL program this Fall semester.

Christianity Today just published a little feature on our very own Seminary Professor Dr. Paul Louis Metzger in their May 2011 Issue. (Lesser known fact, it was also written by MU adjunct professor and prolific journalist Cornelia Becker Seigneur!)
