I'm a junior at Whitman planning to move to Portland this summer for an internship with Bitch Magazine, and I'm looking for a really cheap room to live in from June until the end of August.

I have a friend, also a Whittie, who'd like a room too. So if you've got two cheap rooms available, I'd love to hear from you.

We can afford rooms in the price range of about 300 a month.

1 bedroom available in an awesome two bedroom house in the Kenton neighborhood just a couple blocks east of historic Denver Street. I have loved living here, but due to some family issues, I am moving back to my home state with my son. The gal I live with is pretty dang amazing! She is 26, works at Starbucks, laid back, an EXCELLENT cook and just all around friendly! :]

A little about the house:

It's a two bedroom house off of Lombard and Interstate. Has a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, a back yard, bamboo flooring and a barbecue. There is a driveway for parking, or street parking, if you have a car. There's a tub and a shower, a front room and a dining room, and also a closed in little room outside the back door. Yellow line MAX stop is just a couple blocks walking distance if you don't have a car. Near a Fred Meyer's and a New Seasons is just a couple blocks further south. The I-5 free way entrance is right near the house as well, so it's just a 5 minute (or less) drive down town!

Rent is $550 a month, deposit would be $1100 or less with strong credit. Utilities include gas and electric, the owner pays water and garbage. No smoking or pets. The land lady is pretty incredible as well!!

Comment or message me and come see the house!! I am moving mid December, so you would be able to move in then or the beginning of January!! Thanks!!

No idea if anyone still reads this comm anymore, but I'll give it a shot just in case...
Anyone have suggestions about classes I *have* to take before graduating from UP? In particular, I still need to take a 300 level PHL class, but I'm also curious if anyone has taken anything really good that I should check out. Cheers!

I am trying to figure out what to take for my upper division theology elective next term and I have narrowed it down to two options.

One is THE 438 The Catholic Mass with Rutherford

The other is Literary Catholicism THE 456  with Gordon

It seems as if Literary Catholicism would be better I checked rate my professors and he seems more fun, and we read novels written in the catholic prospective for the class, but I want to know has any one taken these upper division theo's from them? Thoughts, have you taken THE 101 or 205 with them, how were they etc.

Anyways hope your registration dilemmas are going well and thanks for the help :)

So I'm going to a conference that is taking place in Buckley Center.  I'm from Seattle, staying at a hotel in the Portland area and I was wondering about parking at the University of Portland.  Is it expensive?  Is it easier to bus?  I can't find any information, besides parking maps on parking at the UP website.

I'm trying to hammer out a schedule for next semester (while abroad, no less!) and was just wondering if anyone had opinions about these professors:

Faller, Askay, Hogan, Baillie, or Donkel for PHL 220 Ethics. Ideally, I'd love to have Santana but if his class fill up fast (as they seem to do) I'll have to take one of these others. I'm a junior, so hopefully I'll be able to register soon enough that I'll get in.

Gorsek for Cultural Geography--has anyone taken this class? I need a couple more upper division CAS classes for my core, and this looks interesting but has gotten mixed reviews on Rate My Professors.

Any of the history professors-- there's a bunch, so I won't list them all. Rather, has anyone taken an upper division hist. class they really enjoyed? I'm really open for anything.

Also, is anyone else here doing an Environmental Science minor? It looks like some of the classes that I can choose from have been dropped and aren't being taught anymore; just wondering what other people are doing. I'll probably e-mail the head of the dept. to ask more about that.

Thanks everyone! Hope you're all enjoying fall break.

Hey all!

So, this is just a notice that I wanted to extend to anyone who majored in Computer Science!

I'm an intern at CampusPoint, which is a free service for students and recent grads to find jobs in the Portland area! We hire for all types of companies and positions, but at the moment we have a lot of Computer Science positions that we are looking to fill. So, if you've graduated in the last 6 years, major in Computer Science and are looking for a job, let me know! If you have any questions or want more information, feel free to email me! You can also pass along my email to anyone else if you know they are in the field and are looking!

CampusPoint also works for other majors and I wanted to let you all know of a free service that works solely with College students and recent grads!

Some of the jobs are in Programming, Tech Support, Software Application, Software Development, and more!

I'll be a freshman in college next year, and right now I'm trying to choose which college will be right for me. For the longest time I've been set on going to Seattle U, but UP is looking increasingly appealing to me. I have some concerns though.

How active in social justice is the campus? And not just in a 'go down to St. Francis Dining Hall' type way--are there clubs or events addressing social justice issues on a world wide scale, issues such as Darfur or the war? Seattle U seems to be very active in social justice, and I haven't gotten a sense of that level of involvement from UP. Am I wrong? I hope I am, I think I want to go to UP, but I'd like to be involved in clubs like Amnesty International, Oxfam etc. and don't know if I'll be able to do that at UP.

Also, how accepting of other traditions/beliefs is the campus? Are there classes about other faith traditions, or is it pretty focused on Catholicism and Catholicism only?

Also, not that it really matters to me, but am just curious--ratio of Republicans to Democrats?

hi, currently I am a PSU student, but after doing some investigating, U of P has more of what I am looking for. a transfer would be a long way off and a big haul, so I want to make sure I am getting myself to the right place! I'm interested in the Psychology, Social Work, and Nursing programs. anyone here belong to them? or know something about them? basically, I'm looking for opinions on how good they are, whether people like the departments, etc. thank you!
