From February 15- March 15 the Sustainability Institute along with Housing will be putting on an energy competition between residence halls across campus. Each building's energy usage will be measured throughout the month to determine which hall reduced their electricity use the most. Unplug your appliances, turn off your lights, and spend time in common areas (to use the same light source thus reducing your collective usage) to help your building win! Follow our event on Facebook (Willamette Unplugged: Energy Compeition) to sign our pledge and be entered into a weekly raffle to win sustainable prizes, receive updates on your building's status in the competition, and get tips on how to live a more sustainable life. Join in the first ever energy competition on campus and help make the Willamette campus a more sustainable place to live!

All Day

*WU Campus

A Spring Food Drive is being held from March 19th-23rd to raise food for the Bearcat Pantry, a food pantry that opened recently on campus. Donation boxes will be placed in the Administrative Assistant's office of each academic building, and in the Office of Student Activities (OSA) on the UC 2nd floor. We accept all non-perishable food items and hygiene supplies, but items in high demand are bread, cereal, razors, toothbrushes, milk alternatives, and nut butter. All donated supplies will directly benefit the food pantry.
Event Image Exhibition | Holy Beauty | Feb. 10 - April 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Event Image Rewriting a Medieval Battle 900 Years After: The Battlefield of Alcalá la Vieja
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. Mario Ramírez Galán
Universidad de Alcalá, Spain/University of Portland

The battle of Alcalá la Vieja (1118) took place 900 years ago in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid) and we decided to carry out an investigation with the purpose of locating the combat area. Throughout our research, we noticed several mistakes in the written sources and these findings gave us the opportunity of proposing a new theory about the battle development, using Geographic Information Systems.
We carried out a study of the terrain based on landscape archaeology. The relationship between the environment and the archaeological site is very important, but even more in battlefield archaeology because the landscape is the archaeological site itself. It was necessary analyzing visibilities, distances and optimal paths to gain a complete knowledge of the military engagement and rewriting the battle of Alcalá la Vieja.
Our final goal is to carry out a geophysical survey next summer in order to get the archaeological remains which will reinforce our theory.
Event Image Comedian Sammy Obeid
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Willamette Events Board welcomes comedian Sammy Obeid!

Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley -- which is why he does comedy now -- Obeid blends his education with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down hip, trending topics until you laugh your abs into a six pack. Voted "Fastest Rising Star” of 2014 in Campus Activities Magazine, Sammy has appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing, America's Got Talent, TBS’s Conan, and often likes to remind strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network. In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time and The New York Times. And then he took a nap.
