It's hard to believe summer is almost over, but the first-year students will arrive soon, as will many athletes. Of course, plenty has been going on here already.
One unusual event to note: WU will soon attempt to break a world record, and alumni are invited to participate. Read more here. It might make you smile.
Finally: how did Willamette change your life? Was it a professor? A sports team? A group of friends? We're compiling alumni stories just like we did for tales of Willamette romances. (We received amazing responses for that one and will be publishing some in the fall issue of The Scene -- stay tuned!) We'd love to include yours. Email submissions of 500 words or fewer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy (late) summer!
