Proposal Season at UP!

While school has just barely started, proposals have been in full swing this fall on the bluff. Not only was the audience at the Notre Dame soccer game more than shocked when Max Lilly, current ROTC senior at UP, asked his girlfriend of six years, fellow senior Katherine Thompson, to marry him (see the full story from the Beacon here).

It’s especially alive among the ROTC seniors this fall. Gary Thompson, another ROTC senior, proposed to his girlfriend, Kinsey Nolz, just this last Friday, September 21. After lining her backyard with candles and rose petals, Gary asked Kinsey to marry him beside a storyline of their relationship.

Best of luck to both couples, and congratulations!

Hailing from eastern Washington, Julia attends the University of Portland in Oregon, as a Communication Studies major with an emphasis on Journalism. As a magazine and book junkie, Julia reads everything (and anything) she can get her hands on, especially those passionate on young adult culture and entertainment. A woman that gets stir-crazy easily, Julia has been fortunate to have traveled many summers in a row to foreign countries, including a study abroad course in Austria, Germany, and Great Britain. Since a ripe age, she has grown and cultivated her passion and dream of working for a magazine and spreading awareness as well as happiness through the tips of her fingers. Always finding time for herself, Julia can frequently be found quoting movie lines (most frequently Will Ferrell or Vince Vaughn), having a 90's dance party with her roommates, or rereading "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" for the 40th time.
