A gray sky and thin veil of rain greeted more than 180 Multnomah University students as they left campus to participate in Day of Outreach on September 24.

A volunteer site can be anywhere: a nonprofit organization, a nursing home, a school, a community center. MU cancels classes for the day so students can devote their whole morning to service.

“Dr. G” – As He is Affectionately Known

The auditorium erupted into applause and a standing ovation as Dr. Garry Friesen, this year’s commencement speaker, was introduced and presented with the special honor of Professor Emeritus by Multnomah’s President and Board of Trustees. The influence “Dr. G” has had in the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni alike is remarkable.  The evening was especially significant for our Multnomah community in light of Garry’s retirement announcement after 37 years of teaching on Multnomah’s faculty.
