The Office of Student Life enhances the mission of OSU-Cascades by providing services, resources, activities, and involvement opportunities to support the co-curricular experience of our students. We strive to connect students to the campus community, create opportunities to expand leadership skills, and inspire students to be life-long learners.
The Office of Student Life oversees all of our co-curricular activities. These are things like Student Government, Student Fee Committee, Student Organizations, Cascades Adventures, Club Sports, and campus-wide programming. Additionally, we oversee the First-Year Experience programming designed to support our newest students.
The Office of Student Life oversees our Student Organizations. Getting involved on campus is one of the most important things you can do to make yourself a well-rounded student and highly marketable after you graduate. The leadership skills you gain and the resume building opportunities are an invaluable part of your university experience. Plus it's a great way to meet people who share a similar interest. There are lots of student organizations to get involved in and if you don't find one that fits, find three other friends and start a new one. For more information about getting involved visit our Student Organizations page.
Cascades Adventures is a program designed to provide students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to participate in outdoor activities, outings, programs and workshops. Come join us and meet new folks, try new activities, learn some new outdoor skills and have fun! Cascades Adventures aims at providing enriching experiences for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts. For more information about our Outdoor Recreation program visit the Cascades Adventures page.
The location of campus close to Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters Wilderness provides a world-renowned setting for students to participate in skiing and biking. We have a competition level Nordic Ski team as well as a Cycling Team. Our Skiers competed at Nationals this past year and three were even invited to compete at the University World Games in Asia. Our Cycling Club team also regularly places high in rankings and competes in road, mountain, and Cyclocross disciplines. For more information about Our OSU-C teams, visit our Club Sports page.
ASCC is OSU-Cascade's Student Government.

OSU-Cascades Student Fee Committee (SFC) is a group of student leaders responsible for the allocation of student incidental fees.
