  • 👏 Congratulations to sophomore Kayla Coalwell for winning this year's Bash-Whisler Bible Contest with her readings of Pslams 129:1-14 and Romans 8:28-39!

The contest was a powerful event hearing from our finalists (left to right) Kayla Coalwell, Kalani Miller, and Dennis Cox as they spoke the Word to an attentive audience of students and staff with passion and sincerity. We love the devotion to scripture from all who participated! We look forward to seeing even more next year!

  • Growth at Goodrich Hall! 

The Goodrich Hall Bell Tower is taking shape and standing tall above campus! Once completed, the tower will have an elevator with restrooms at each level and will connect to each floor of Goodrich Hall. Four bells will call the campus community to chapel and celebrate occasions such as Convocation and Commencement. At the very top of the Bell Tower, a cross will stand close to six stories high, overlooking campus and downtown Eugene.

The interior renovations continue in Goodrich Hall, preparing to house several new, modern classrooms and office spaces.

Stay tuned for continued updates on the progress of Goodrich Hall!

  • Say hello to this week’s student spotlight, Abby Askew! 💡 @abby_askew3 is a Eugene native who is majoring in Secondary Education and minoring in Bible and Theology. She wishes to become a high school teacher in History and Language Arts. As she completes her junior year, Abby is completing her practicum at Springfield High School working with freshman and senior level global study classes.

Abby feels Bushnell is preparing her well for her future as she will achieve an extensive number of hours in the field before graduation. These hours provide her with an abundance of hands-on experience she can apply to the classroom. For Abby, Bushnell has provided her with the strategies and tools she needs to enter the teaching profession. 

Abby's advice for incoming freshman is, “... to get as involved as possible. Freshman year is pretty scary. Everything's new and you're out on your own for the first time. A good way to help combat all of that is to be known and to have a bunch of people you can go to and new experiences and things and have all of the options open to you is super unique, and so taking all of those opportunities as they come up.”

  • Have you noticed the new wagon on campus and wondered what it is and where it came from? 🤔 We have some answers we would like to share with you!

This partial replica of an Oregon Trail wagon was gifted to Bushnell by alumni and long-time donors, Jim '64 and Donna '63 Pomajevich, connecting to the life story of James A. Bushnell, our University namesake, and first President of the Board of Regents. Jim Pomajevich is a member of the National Stagecoach and Freight Wagon Association, and the wagon was a passion project that he built by hand to be authentic to the time period James Bushnell traveled from Missouri to Oregon in 1852, eventually helping establish Eugene Divinity School in 1895. 

He created the wagon (with help from our VP for Finance & Administration, Gene De Young) as a visual reminder of how James Bushnell and his family traveled to Oregon to help our Beacons connect with the context of his grit and determination; characteristics that continue to describe the University to this day. The wagon will be part of a permanent display featuring more information to help our students, staff and guests understand its significance.

Check out the photos of Jim Pomajevich on campus helping deliver and assemble wagon last month!

  • We beat the heat at Burning Questions! 🔥🍗

Students got to hear answers to some hot topic questions on campus from a panel of Bushnell leadership while they chowed down on some spicy chicken from @daveshotchicken, hosted by @asbu.beacons President, Matthew Wilhite.

Together, they handled the spice, even sampling the infamous Reaper 🌶️ level. Even our Beacons got to join in on the fun!

Say hello to this week’s student spotlight, Abby Askew! 💡 @abby_askew3 is a Eugene native who is majoring in Secondary Education and minoring in Bible and Theology. She wishes to become a high school teacher in History and Language Arts. As she completes her junior year, Abby is completing her practicum at Springfield High School working with freshman and senior level global study classes.

Abby feels Bushnell is preparing her well for her future as she will achieve an extensive number of hours in the field before graduation. These hours provide her with an abundance of hands-on experience she can apply to the classroom. For Abby, Bushnell has provided her with the strategies and tools she needs to enter the teaching profession. 

Abby's advice for incoming freshman is, “... to get as involved as possible. Freshman year is pretty scary. Everything's new and you're out on your own for the first time. A good way to help combat all of that is to be known and to have a bunch of people you can go to and new experiences and things and have all of the options open to you is super unique, and so taking all of those opportunities as they come up.”
