The Student Events and Activities Center is excited to present the annual Beaver Community Fair at the Memorial Union Quad from 12:00-4:00p.m. Annually, this event draws together well over 2000 community members to celebrate the start of another academic year. Sponsored by the Corvallis Gazette-Times, this year’s Fair will feature music provided by your student radio – KBVR FM, free massages throughout the fair, food samples - including pasta, breads, popcorn, Italian sodas, Pepsi products, fruits & veggies – and door prize drawings throughout the event!
The Beaver Community Fair is a great opportunity to explore some of the 350+ recognized clubs and student organizations at OSU. Student leaders are excited to share information about their organizations with you in hopes of sparking your interest. A range of OSU departments will be present to provide an overview of programs, services and resources available to students. Finally, a myriad of Corvallis area businesses and agencies will attend in hopes of educating the OSU community about the services and products they offer and how you can connect with their respective organizations. Come out and explore how you can get involved with something that matters to you.
