Meet Jared Bassett. Oregon born. The first cross country state champion from Marshfield High School since Steve Prefontaine, NCAA All American on the track, and member of Team USA. Cross country standout, steeple chaser, nurse-to-be and a star in the university choir. Loves the sense of community at UP.
As the summer Olympics approach, we wanted to introduce you to a few of our talented student-athletes. All of these students excel in many areas of their young lives: in the classroom and in their fields of play, through volunteer work and service, all while competing at the highest level of collegiate sport.
In July and August 2012, University of Portland will launch a series of new spots continuing our "hero" and "rise" themes. A UP education, in the tradition of the Congregation of Holy Cross, is an education of the heart, hand, and mind. Our students and alumni are leaders in the classroom and the boardroom, in business and nonprofits, from the university's athletic fields to cities across the world.
University of Portland is changing the world. One student at a time.
