Multnomah Celebrates 75 Years with First Ever Week-long Homecoming


HomecomingLogoPORTLAND, Ore. - Multnomah will hold its first week-long homecoming celebration on February 14-18, 2012. Activities for alumni, staff, faculty, and students will emphasize and celebrate Multnomah's rich heritage as captured in the slogan "75 Years of Reflecting the Light of Christ."

Traditionally a weekend event in the fall, organizers quickly discovered that two days would not contain the events they were planning for the occasion. In addition to the new spring date that is closer to important home basketball games, participants will enjoy five full days of festivities, ensuring the week will not soon be forgotten.
