Reflecting the Light of Christ

Light in a Dark Place

"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. Preparing for a black-water rafting excursion, Dr. Lockwood and Elise donned wetsuits, climbing harnesses, and headlamps. Then they proceeded to climb down a 150-foot shaft to a steep tunnel that led to an underground river where a rubber raft awaited them. After traveling a half mile down the river, their guide told them to turn off the headlamps.

Letter From The First Graduating Class

As you can imagine, tracking down students who were here from our founding class in Fall 1936 and graduated with their diploma in Spring 1939 is quite challenging. Many are not well enough to travel, but in this very special 75th Anniversary homecoming week we are celebrating, we are so thankful for the special letter we received from one of these very alum! See what the Class of 1939 has to say to you today!

Is MU in You?

With the Homecoming celebration of MU’s 75th anniversary right around the corner, we’ve seen a definite increase in school spirit. As is the case with any group of rabidly loyal supporters and fans, things can be taken a bit too far.

The “Incident”

Take, for instance, 1981 alum Eric Rice, who went to legendary lengths to prove that he is MU through and through. On his way to the office one morning, he managed to swallow a 75th anniversary lapel pin along with a dose of daily vitamins (and some water for good measure). The shape and size of the lapel pin made it difficult to swallow completely, so it took some doing. Since no one was around to witness the act, he needed some way to prove that his tale was true and went to the doctor to get some x-rays. Read the rest of this entry »

Memories From The 1950's

We've been publishing posts for our 75th Anniversary year featuring some of the goodies from yesteryear we've been finding...some of you actually sent us some old gear! We were especially excited to receive this letter sweater from an Alumna who still had her original class of 1951 class pin attached! Just look at that thing - something tells me that current students would really go for a true "throwback" style like this.

From the Archives: Student Life Photos

In the upcoming Fall 2011 issue of Multnomah magazine due to hit mailboxes as early as 12/10 we had students write a special series of articles about student life through the decades. The first two of these articles focus on the 1940's and1960's.  They also found great photos from the archives - there were far too many to put in the Magazine, so we decided to post this special gallery here.
