Remember this casting call for Portlandia Season 3 filming on campus?
Portlandia TV Show Features Multnomah University Campus
Portlandia filmed a number of sketches for season 3 for two days this past summer and we had a blast. The Portlandia film crew and actors were some of the best people we've ever had the privilege of working with. It was great seeing Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen hanging around the Admissions Offices or sitting in the commuter lounge of the JCA or sweating it out for three hours with Dr. Dan Lockwood in a very hot Mitchell Library because the sound guys needed the AC turned off!

Put A Lion On It!
Want to be an "extra" on the TV show Portlandia? Well, here's your chance to appear in a special filming on Multnomah's campus!

(Is that irony? Discuss.)

Through my read I’ve appreciated the opportunity of getting to know our president more.

Light in a Dark Place
"Have you ever been in a very dark space... [where] you couldn't see anything?"
Multnomah's president Dr. Dan Lockwood began his spring 2012 Convocation Chapel address with a story about a trip to New Zealand with his daughter, Elise. Preparing for a black-water rafting excursion, Dr. Lockwood and Elise donned wetsuits, climbing harnesses, and headlamps. Then they proceeded to climb down a 150-foot shaft to a steep tunnel that led to an underground river where a rubber raft awaited them. After traveling a half mile down the river, their guide told them to turn off the headlamps.

Yesterday we posted a somewhat cryptic looking teaser that referenced some alleged tomfoolery that our President Dan Lockwood was mixed up in. Well, today the announcement was made by the man himself on his Facebook page.
