Can you believe that on this day 5 years ago, 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! - 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:

Dr. Willard M. Aldrich will celebrate his 100th birthday on Sunday, January 4, 2008!  Willard (as he's known by many around here) was with Multnomah since its founding. His leadership and hard work with fellow founders laid the foundation for the principled, Biblical education we strive to give to this day.

  • Founder
  • Founding Trustee (until retirement in 2004!)
  • President
  • First Registrar
  • Faculty Member
  • AABC Accreditation Overseer
  • Campus Mover (literally)
  • Builder of 5 Campus Buildings
  • All these above and many more

Won't You Tell Him What He Meant To You?

We're asking everyone to send us stories and well-wishes that we can present, on behalf of the entire Multnomah family, to Willard and the Aldrich family. Your words will be set and bound in a book that we hope will be a blessing to a family and man that has done so much for the Kingdom of God through Multnomah.

"...We have many happy memories of Multnomah when we were there. One of the fun times was when we came to your place and made apple cider.  We'd never had homemade cider before and it was very good, even though you told us afterwards that you just threw in the whole apple. worms and all..."

"...One of my favorite memories of you when I was a student was seeing you on the "campus days," wearing your flannel plaid shirt and driving your tractor around campus.  For me you exemplified down-to-earth faith as well as a scholarly and godly professor..."
