Different dreams, one purpose: Students from all over the world join MU

Students with different dreams and goals arrived on campus last week. Some had included MU in their plans for years, while others made last-minute decisions to attend. But regardless of their backgrounds, all of our new students desire a higher purpose in their careers. They look to their faith to infuse meaning in all they do.

Student2015aMiguel Ruiz traveled all the way from his hometown in Mexico to experience MU. “I basically came to follow my dream,” he says. “I want to have a sports ministry. I have played soccer my whole life, and I want to go back to Mexico and share the gospel there through soccer.” The youth ministry major is convinced MU is the perfect place to pursue his ambitions. He says he wants to learn everything he can while he’s here.

Student2015cAzaria Coakley is eager to interact with people on campus and learn their stories. “I think we have a small enough school where I can learn about everyone I graduate with,” she says.  The business major from Vancouver, Wash., wasn’t sold on MU at first, but she quickly changed her mind when she took a second look. “I love Multnomah already, and I’ve only been here two days,” she says. “I want to learn what my place is, and I feel this is the best place to do that.”

Student2015bIn terms of the campus environment, Monica Paterson found exactly what she was looking for at Multnomah. “I wanted to be submerged in a Christian atmosphere,” she says. “No matter where I am on campus, I want to be able to talk to someone about Jesus or ask, ‘Do you mind praying for me?’ I wanted to be in a place where these conversations were common.” The global studies major from Vinton City, Ohio, visited several other Christian colleges, but they weren’t quite right. “I loved the opportunities they offered, but I knew they weren’t my blessing – Multnomah was,” she says.

We welcome you, new students. Our prayerful desire is that you will become equipped to engage our culture with courage and compassion while committing yourself to serving Jesus with your career. Have a great school year!

MU Night Out @ Portland Timbers Faith Night

Getting cheap tickets to a Portland Timbers soccer game is just one of the many benefits of being a Multnomah alum or employee. Be sure to mark your calendar and buy the tickets before they run out. This is the Portland Timbers' first official "Faith Night" since they joined the pro ranks of MLS - so let's join the other church groups there and show our support!

Hopping Homecoming Hotdogs

It was a dollar a dog day when 96 of Multnomah’s alumni came home this past weekend in celebration of Homecoming 2008. All hot dog sales went to help fund STUGO (student government). Kyle Higginbotham won an Ipod Nano.  The day’s activities also included: Soccer, Women’s Volleyball, and the main event of the evening Men's varsity basketball vs. Alumni and what an exciting game it was. Our alumni gave our varsity team a run for their money. It was neck and neck up until the last 3 minutes of the game with the 1st half ending with Multnomah Alumni: 49 and Multnomah Lions: 51 – our current Lions took the game 101 to 87.

Special thanks

STUGO for your support in this year's event and to all of our Alumni participants, thank you.
