University Day Viewing Announcement
From University Events:
If you can’t come to Corvallis for University Day, we want to bring University Day to you! The event, scheduled for Monday, September 19 at 10:30 a.m., will be live streamed so that you can view the event at your computer. http://live.oregonstate.edu/ The presentation will also be live captioned for easy viewing.
Prizes! If your place of work is outside of Corvallis, we want to give you a chance to win!!! Email RSVP@oregonstate.edu by noon on Friday, September 18, to get your ticket number. You must watch the program to be eligible to win, and if your number is called, you’ll need to respond immediately using the chat function (so don’t forget to log in!)
So what’s happening at the Main Session? We are excited this year’s University Day keynote address is by Carmen Suarez, Vice President for Global Diversity and Inclusion at Portland State University.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mealoha McFadden. I hope that your schedule will allow for you to join us virtually!
Extension Annual Conference Bowling Night
The Extension Annual Conference Bowling Night at the Memorial Union, is Tuesday, November 15, 2016!!!
The Memorial Union Bowling Room is reserved from 7pm-9:00pm so we will have plenty of time to play and celebrate the winners.
Going outside tradition, this year we will have a healthy alternative rather than pizza. When you email me your team, name, etc. Please let me know of there are any dietary restrictions. I will be ordering platters of Subway sandwiches and providing water and Ice Tea.
The cost will be $15.00 per person and you can pay when you register online through Idealogic.
I will need to collect the trophies from last year’s competition before conference. If you are coming to campus any time before conference, and you can bring your teams trophies, please drop them off with Amanda Bielenberg in Ballard 108.
It will be up to you and your team to WIN THEM BACK!!
Annual Conference Registration will start sooner than you know! Please RSVP to me your team name and players, so I have an estimate head count ahead of time.
Fall Term 2016
Classes start at OSU on Wednesday, September 21st, but students are already exploring campus getting ready for the new year. The population of Corvallis will grow exponentially over the coming weekend, so if you were planning to visit campus this would be the week to do it before Corvallis gets too busy.
Central Oregon will also see some new term excitement. The new OSU -Cascades in Bend will open for classes this fall.
