To make the students more aware of what Portland had to offer, the College had Machigonne Day, on which the students were taken by bus to the downtown area. They were given a brochure on places and points of interest and a silver dollar to help defray expenses. Another reason for the excursion was the hope that the influx of silver dollars into the local businesses would make the merchants more aware of the college.
In this photograph from Machigonne Day in 1964, three students are standing in front of a marble mantled fireplace in the reception room of Victoria Mansion. There is an ornate mantle clock in the center of the mantlepiece.
The student in the middle is tentatively identified as Carol Ann MacGregor, Class of 1964. The other two are not yet identified.
