2010 Constitution Day At Multnomah

Here's a post from 2008 about Consitution Day at Multnomah.

Church and State

Making Sense of the Establishment and Freedom Clauses

Every year we are required by law to do an activity in honor of Constitution Day. In the past, we have held “Prayer at the Flagpole” and have prayed for our nation, but this year we are doing something different. Instead, on September 17 (today for most of you), Multnomah will be hosting a panel discussion on two of the most important and yet, most debated portions of the U.S. Constitution: the Establishment Clause and the Freedom of Religion Clause.

Alumni + Compassion + Radio

Brand New Website (This Time, It’s Real)!

Ok, after all the buzz created by the horrible "beta" site, we've actually launched the real, brand new site!

www.multnomah.edu

There are still some items that we're hammering out (isn't that always the thing about websites?) - but we're now live.

Take a minute to browse (and then breath a sigh of relief that the fake site we put up for fun was not true if you were taken in by it!).

Something Wrong?

We will be re-launching some key items over the coming weeks and months (like some Alumni features and the Blogosphere, etc), but if you see a fatal error, please let us know at procom@multnomah.edu

(Also, we're already aware of some strange issues with Internet Explorer 7 - but those should be repaired within a day of this posting)

(Finally, we are not averse to criticism at Multnomah - and believe it, we get a LOT - but please just be civil!)

Where's The Intranet?!

Don't worry, it's there in the footer at the bottom of the page. We recommend that frequent users of the Intranet bookmark it for their ease in the future.

They Love Living @ MU

Recently, our Student Services department (they run student housing and residence life, amongst other things) ran a contest for students to tell them, via video, why they love living at Multnomah.

There was  a modest cash prize - but the real cheddar was getting on to the www.multnomah.edu homepage and promoted via this blog!

The Vid

This video is so good, it makes all of us who are already graduated want to re-enroll and move back in!

Congrats to William A. Beatty for a great production and to Greg Woodman for some sweet original music!

See more MU vids at www.youtube.com/multnomahuniversity

And seriously, this video was 100% student-produced!

Multnomah Is Part Of My Story – Call For Videos!

Attention all Alumni!

The Multnomah family wants to know what you are up to. You can help us share your story by making a video!

3 Easy Steps to Making Your Video

  1. Make Your Video
    • Start with: “Hi, I’m (name) and I graduated in (class year) with a (degree name).”
    • What you are currently doing (life, ministry, career)
    • Multnomah’s ongoing impact in your life
    • End with: “I’m (name) and Multnomah is part of my story."
  2.  Keep It Short
    • Under 2 minutes – or shorter if possible, but still riveting!
  3. Upload!
    • Upload your video to YouTube or another video sharing site and send the link to alumni@multnomah.edu OR send us a DVD.

What Will Happen With It

We will choose a video each month to be our Alumni Spotlight Video. (If your video is chosen, we will send your video’s link to all Multnomah alumni in the Alumni Connection e-newsletter.)

We’ll likely add all of them to our YouTube Channel’s “favorites” section and upload them to the Facebook Fan Page:

Now go… Get rolling! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures! Nobody tells the Multnomah story like our Alumni!

A New Partnership With Georgene Rice

Some of you who listen to The Georgene Rice Show on Portland's KPDQ 93.9 fm radio station already know this - but for the rest of you, we have some really big news!

(See the Podcasted Show announcement below)

The Deal

We've recently signed an agreement to be the primary sponsor of the very well-known Georgene Rice Show.

  • The show will now be broadcast from the "Multnomah Studios at KPDQ"
  • We've partnered up to sponser her podcasts and the call-in phone line
  • There will be a new segment called "Ask the Professor"...(for which they've opened up a competition for Multnomah people to write and produce the segment jingle for it! - email us at procom@multnomah.edu for more details on how you can be famous)
  • Ms. Rice will bring her show to the Multnomah campus (Portland) 3 times/year now
  • There are more items to add to this list, but it's long enough for a blog post!

The Kick-Off

Our President, Dr. Dan Lockwood, went on air live last Monday (4/19) to discuss the new agreement. We've posted the mp3 podcast here for your enjoyment. You'll hear a Multnomah Biblical Seminary radio commercial to start it out and then Dr. Dan comes on at about the 8-minute mark. So simply scroll over to go straight to that if you like. (But the whole show is great! Hello, Georgene!).

YouTube Turns 5 Years-Old

Can you believe that on this day 5 years ago, www.youtube.com was launched? It almost seems like it's been here forever.

Here are a couple of good, short write-ups about YouTube's special day from the Chicago Tribune and the Mashable websites.

Us, 5 Years Ago

5 years ago, Multnomah had just launched the Website we're re-doing right now and we didn't have a blog yet - or a Facebook page, or Chapels on iTunes, or Podcasts, or RSS Feeds, or our own embedded videos from our own Youtube Channel!

www.youtube.com/multnomahuniversity - check back often, we've got more plans and videos already in the pipeline for this!

Student Videos

Also, our students are making more and more great videos these days (actually, they always have, it's just that they are now, thanks to YouTube, more readily available). So, in honor of the Junior-Senior Banquet (JSB) being held tonight, here is the winning video from a STUGO contest for the most creative video for asking your date to JSB:
