As soon as the Plunge was over, Orientation began. Friday I met my roommate. Classes started Monday, and I had no idea what to expect. It didn’t take long to figure out that the professors here really WANT to help! Each one of my professors has office hours outside of class, where anyone can walk in and ask a question, or just say hello. In only one week I’ve met a bunch of great people. Between classes, socializing, and my job in one of the offices, I was definitely looking forward to the weekend.

After a busy week, the weekend was a much needed break from academics. It started off at Mississippi Pizza, a local pizza joint a few miles from campus. The band for the night was the Electric Opera Company, which features many fellow UP students. They’ve put their musical talents to work transforming classical operas to music that has a more mainstream “electric rock” feel. The place was packed. On Sunday, I headed off to Mount Hood with my girlfriend and her sister. We hiked along the Timberline Trail and managed to find some wild blueberries and had a nice lunch next to a mountain stream. Even as a senior, it’s pretty awesome to find new places in the area!

After a busy week, the weekend was a much needed break from academics. It started off at Mississippi Pizza, a local pizza joint a few miles from campus. The band for the night was the Electric Opera Company, which features many fellow UP students. They’ve put their musical talents to work transforming classical operas to music that has a more mainstream “electric rock” feel. The place was packed. On Sunday, I headed off to Mount Hood with my girlfriend and her sister. We hiked along the Timberline Trail and managed to find some wild blueberries and had a nice lunch next to a mountain stream. Even as a senior, it’s pretty awesome to find new places in the area!
