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!

This was produced entirely by students in MU's recording studio...and has nothing but students, alumni, faculty, and staff as the stars!
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.
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 »

In honor of our 75th Anniversary year and the huge new Homecoming Week coming in February, we've just produced our very first 2012 Multnomah desktop calendar! It comes in a shiny new CD jewel case and features campus shots through the months with new facts and information on the back of each month. With one of these in your possession, you'll be the smartest person in the room (that is, if there's a Multnomah trivia contest occurring).
Quantities are limited, so read on to find out how you can get a free one.

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.

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.

Reflective, Effective, Servant Leaders
Dr. Daniel R. Lockwood, president of Multnomah University, continues his series "Conversations with Dr. Dan." In this second video of the Fall 2011 semester, he briefly discusses the important core value of Practical Expression and how it is realized at Multnomah through the development of reflective, effective, servant leaders who discover and use their natural abilities to serve Christ.
