You Were Here
Praise to Spring Forth
The final morning of Weekend on the Bluff dawned clear and crisp last Sunday. As the bell tower chimed ten fifteen, students, faculty and perspective Pilots made their way across campus to mass, surrounded by the blooming foliage of a true University of Portland spring. Bright colors were thrown into sharp relief by an indecisive sun, as groups gathered at the Chapel of Christ the teacher. Here is a collection of photos that highlights the morning mass migration.
