The campus community was extremely excited about the opening of the new Centro! That’s a great thing and further reinforces our hope to post more stories about some of our more underrepresented groups.
I’m also pretty proud of how well our dance story, “A common step,” did in the short amount of time it was actually on the home page. Things are moving along swimmingly. Soon we’ll be posting some of our “Beaver Nation” preview stories to the homepage!
The stories we have live on the homepage right now are ALL commencement-related. You can check out the stories here (http://poweredbyorange.com/blog/). We profiled six amazing graduating seniors. We also have a general commencement story up based on a press release and our Beaver Boards (http://sites.oregonstate.edu/beaverboards/) gallery filled with photos of mortarboards seniors decorated, showcasing the creativity of our graduates and the Oregon State tradition of decorating graduation caps each year! This is something we hope to continue and add to over the years, collecting the most interesting and unique boards…and maybe learning the stories behind them.
