“Histories of Students of Color at OSU” Campus Tour Guidebook, Fall 2015

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
    Reser Stadium

On December 3rd, the last day of the course, the students posed for a class photo with the guidebook that they helped to author, and afterwards, they led a tour of the new sites.
