University of Portland Visit Day

Saturday, April 5th, PAST&E scholar athletes ventured to the University of Portland for a day full of activities. Every student had their own college “bid buddy” that stayed with them throughout the day in order to show them what life is like as a college student.

The day began with seeing the Pilots Women’s Tennis face off Pepperdine. Then the big buddies and scholar athletes set off for a scavenger hunt to find 7 tennis balls hidden in key buildings on the University of Portland campus, like the library and a dormitory. After meeting for a free lunch, the scholar athletes also heard some speeches about the importance of college. Through the activities and bonding with their big buddies, the scholar athletes were able to see the opportunities that college can offer.
