The 2015 edition of the “Histories of Students of Color at OSU” Campus Tour Guidebook is fresh off the press! Two years ago, in the Fall of 2013, the OMA collaborated with the ALS 199 U-Engage class “Untold Stories: Histories of People of Color in Oregon” to create an OSU campus tour regarding the histories of the university’s students of color. We included 10 locations representing 10 people, places, or events significant within OSU’s history pertaining to the activism and accomplishments of students of color. This year we expanded the guidebook by including seven new stories and we updated the information for a few locations in the first edition.
Here are the 17 sites:
- Carrie Halsell, OSU’s First African American Graduate
Carrie Halsell Residence Hall
- 2008 Honorary Degree Ceremony for Japanese American Students During WWII
- William Tebeau, OSU’s First Male African American Graduate

The students and the OMA hope that you find the stories to be both educational and inspiring – enjoy the tour!
There are two versions of the tour guidebook: one is the version to view digitally and the other is the version that when printed and folded in half becomes a booklet; and, both are available online.
For the print version of the booklet, click here for the print version of the file, then follow the instructions listed in the abstract.
And, we also created a website to feature the Untold Stories!
