Admissions: Lauren Tolcher
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years I see myself as having graduated from UP and possibly studying at a top medical school.
Favorite Core Class? So far it's Intro to English Lit. I had such an intelligent, enthusiastic and fun professor who made the class extremely engaging and enjoyable. He made sure to make everything we learned applicable to our everyday lives.
Favorite professor and why?
Downs is my favorite UP professor! He is such an intelligent and
enthusiastic professor and made his class extremely engaging and enjoyable. He
made sure to make everything we learned applicable to our everyday lives.
Favorite Portland landmark? My favorite Portland area destination is Angel's Rest a the Columbia River Gorge. I love hiking and exploring nature and the top of Angel's Rest is the most beautiful view I have ever seen.
I don't have many hidden talents other than I
can (kind of) play the guitar and ukulele.
Activities or clubs you are involved with or other leadership positions? Student Ambassador, Love Your Melon Crew Secretary, Friends of Trees, Volunteer Student Leader at local parish Youth Group, Voice for Life.
What is a Pilot? A Pilot is a kind-hearted, genuine, compassionate, friendly, confident, intelligent and determined individual who strives to make a difference in the lives of others and in the world. All the students, faculty, staff and anyone in the UP community are Pilots!
Favorite Pilots After Dark event?
My favorite Pilots After
Dark event was when Kris Orlowski came to campus and performed a concert for us
in the academic quad. I had never heard of him and his band before and
loved their music! It was so much fun having this on campus private
concert and then going to the Pilot House after to hear them play more acoustic
covers and answer questions.
Why did you decide to enroll at UP? From the moment I walked onto campus to visit, it just felt like home. The campus was so beautiful and the environment was so welcoming. All of the people were so friendly and I just knew I could picture myself here. UP had everything that I was looking for in a school with its small size, strong academic programs, Catholic identity and much more.
