New friends enjoy a dance during a UP-organized prom at Assumption village.


A group of 30 University of Portland students hosted a prom at Assumption Village, a North Portland assisted living home. The students decorated, served food, and danced with the residents.

Lauren Bene, a sophomore, volunteers at Assumption Village four hours a week and helped plan the dance.

“Ever since I told the residents about the prom, they have been counting down the days,” Bene said shortly before the dance. “One man who has severe dementia can still remember how to waltz and he lit up when I told him students from UP will come and dance with him.”
