Hello there, first-year College of Liberal Arts students! Guess what? It’s Week 3 of this very beautiful Spring term and it’s time to celebrate the beginning of the end of your first year at Oregon State University. How might you go about doing this? By attending the College of Liberal Arts Matriculation Ceremony this Wednesday, April 16 at 4:30 p.m. in Milam 026 (a.k.a. the very large lecture hall in Milam), of course.
The Matriculation Ceremony is a celebratory event focused on recognizing your first-year achievements in CLA, mingling with fellow Liberal Arts folk, and inspiring you to continue to excel in your studies here at OSU and beyond. We will be giving you treats and beverages as well as providing opportunities to win prizes! An important part of the evening will include meeting your major advisor. Through this entire first year, you’ve been meeting with your CLA Advisor in the Central Advising Office in Gilkey. Now that your CLA Advisor has helped you to feel settled in your major and at OSU, you now will gain the guidance of your major advisor who will be able to help you determine your major courses, find major-specific internship and study abroad opportunities, and so much more related to your own discipline. Myself and the other CLA Student Ambassadors will also be there to chat and help answer any questions you might have.
It is also important to meet your major advisor because you will need to get your fall registration pin from them so that you can register by mid-May!
So, if you haven’t already marked it on your calendar, go do it right now, you won’t want to miss this memorable event. I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday at 4:30 in the Milam auditorium!
