Summer 2015

Summer is under two weeks away College of Forestry Undergraduates! Can you feel the sunshine yet? Summer in Corvallis can be a really fun time and there are many opportunities available!

If you are taking classes over the summer, you will be happy to know that the Academic Success Center is open during summer term.  The center is located in 102 Waldo Hall and can provide you with help in the following areas:

  • Study skills
  • Time management
  • Effective note taking
  • Avoiding procrastination
  • Test taking strategies
  • And many more!

When you are done studying for your summer classes, Corvallis is a great town to explore!  For all of the outdoor enthusiasts out there, consider checking out one of the many hiking trails in the College of Forestry’s own McDonald-Dunn Forest.  The Willamette River that runs through Corvallis is also a great place to cool off on a warm day in Corvallis.  There is also the Corvallis Farmers Market which is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm on the corner of First Street and Jackson Avenue in downtown Corvallis.

To all of the undergraduate students in the College of Forestry, we wish you a wonderful summer filled with sunshine and new experiences, and we also wish our graduating seniors luck as they enter the work force.

It’s been a great year and we will see you in September!

  • What are the benefits of a graduate degree?
  • What are the basic admissions processes and requirements?
  • How do I pay for my graduate education?

There will also be a Q&A session at the end of the evening.  If graduate school sounds even a little bit like a path you would be interested in, please attend the event!  For more information, visit the OSU Grad School Website.  If you have any questions, please call 541-737-4881 or email at graduate.inquire@oregonstate.edu.
