OSU ‘Dining with the Dean’ episode set to air

Posted October 11th, 2011 by UHDS News

Oregon State University hosted a BYUtv production crew for a taping of an episode of “Dining with the Dean” that will premiere in the week prior to the OSU-Brigham Young University clash on the football field. The episode will air at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 on BYUtv.

Dining with the Dean features two teams vying to win a cash donation for the team as well a $2,000 contribution to the charity of their choosing. Oregon State was represented by two teams of students from Student Leadership and Involvement (SLI) — The Beaver- Bites and the Flat-Tails.

Both teams represented OSU with pride, fun and fierce competitive spirit. Dean Tammy Bray from the OSU College of Public Health and Human Sciences served as the judge to determine the winner. Dean Bray surprised the production team as well as the students with a twist at the end of taping. Watch the premiere episode to learn what the twist was and who the winning team and charity is.

Student Leadership and Involvement is a unit of Student Affairs on the Oregon State campus made up of programs that support the out of classroom experiences of OSU students. The two teams were comprised of students who lead for the Student Events and Activities Program, Memorial Union Program Council, International Students of OSU  and the SLI Info Team.

Team Beaver-Bites was captained by Alan Louie and the Flat-Tails by Nik Bowen.

The College of Public Health and Human Sciences vision of “Lifelong health and well being for every person, every family, every community” made Dean Bray the perfect judge of the student efforts in creating a healthy three course meal with only $30. Each team was charged with reviewing and incorporating the ideas from the new “MY Plate” guidelines into the meal as suggested by “Be Well BE Orange” campaign at OSU.

BYUtv is available on  channel 9403 for all Dish Network programming packages, and on  channel 374 for all DIRECTV programming packages. BYUtv is also available via cable, so you may check your local listings.
