MU Sign Gets Some “LOVE”

As you, the faithful reader, already know, the Multnomah University sign had the letters "LOVE" stolen out of it.

"LOVE" Is Back

Campus Services got the sign repaired just in time for graduation last week - so now the "love" is back in MU.


Love Is Also Expensive

Have you ever heard the song "Can't Buy Me Love" by Paul McCartney? Well, apparently, sometimes you can "buy me love" - for about $486.00. That's how much it cost to replace four letters on that sign - wow! I feel like we should take up a "love offering" for this (would that mean that felony theft is now tax deductible? I digress).

After following up with security and checking with my "student informants", we are still no closer to solving the "Caper of Lost Love"...however, rumors are floating that it was one of 2 possibilities:

  1. A senior prank?
  2. A metal thief who was very disappointed to find out the letters are actually vinyl?

We'll likely never know.

Where Is The Love?

Someone has absconded with the letters "L", "O", "V", and "E" from the "Multnomah University" sign on Glisan Street!


Honestly, who steals letters?

Some possible theories from around campus:

  • Since the "pink mist" (that means that engagements and love is in the air with students) is floating in spring, perhaps someone is trying to propose or otherwise proclaim their love with the golden letters of "love"?
  • Maybe it is tennis players from nearby Montavilla Park since "love" means "nothing" to them!
  • Maybe there is something malicious afoot where someone is trying to make a statement about no "love" in MU?
  • Perhaps our Advancement department is holding an elaborate fundraiser where "love" is being held hostage and only one letter at a time will be released as ransom is paid?
  • Maybe I couldn't think of anything better to blog about so I trooped out in the rain, in my suit, with an expensive camera, and staged it for giggles? (Nope. Campus Services would be ticked!)

Well, honestly, we don't know what happened or why. Maybe the letters will resurface? Probably not.

Oh well...any ideas? Anyone?
