Residence Life: Pilots After Dark
The Office of Residence Life values student involvement on campus and created a weekend/late night programming series called Pilots After Dark in spring 2010. A team of Resident Assistants, Assistant Hall Directors, or the Residence Hall Association (RHA) will continue to sponsor a weekend/late night program Saturday nights starting at 10:00 p.m. during the 2012-2013 school year. The events are free to all University of Portland residential students.

Pinterest & Manterest Offline
Commons Dining Side
We will be celebrating Pinterest and Manterest, the websites that have taught us how to better use our crock pot, decorate our man caves, and share our favorite pictures. This event will feature projects and foods from both of these websites. Whether you want to learn how to make a quick microwave dessert or create a piece of art to display on your wall, we will have all the supplies needed for you to create something you would be proud to pin yourself!
Hypnotist Christopher Pemberton
Commons Dining Side
Christopher Pemberton returns to UP for another amazing show! His show contains three major elements of entertainment. One, the members of the audience (who agree to be hypnotized), become the stars of the show. Two, the mystery of hypnotism. Three, lots of fun and interesting skits for the hypnotics to do. Enjoy a multitude of sweet and savory treats during the show as well. Whether you're skeptical, indifferent, or willing to participate, you won't regret attending! Always a UP favorite!
