As we welcomed the Reno-Tahoe campus to the Multnomah University family we received a funny little gift in the mail.
It's a tumbleweed. We kind of just stared at it for a while. Multnomah being in Portland means we don't see much tumbleweed in these parts. Sure, I think we all recognize these sand dwellers from the movies, but we really couldn't understand why someone would mail us one (let alone three). Then we received an email from Jason Daniels the Administrative Director of the Reno-Tahoe campus detailing some facts about our new "friend"...
- It is sharp. (Check!)
- It is Nevada's answer to the pet rock.
He also sent some display ideas...
- Hang it from the ceiling.
- Put it in your yard next to a wagon wheel!
We here at MU Portland are really excited about how our expansion east will extend the reach of Multnomah's mission. Well, we want you all to know that the Reno-Tahoe campus connection is already being felt (or seen) on campus.
It is obvious that Multnomah University Reno-Tahoe is going to be a fun group to work with.
Here is a question for you. What do you think would be the Portland equivalent to a tumbleweed?
