"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.

After traveling a half mile down the river, their guide told them to turn off the headlamps.

The following is adapted from a monthly letter sent in June 2011 to donors and friends of Multnomah.
May, with its wonderful commencement celebration, is the most exciting — and the busiest — month of the year for Multnomah University.
