Meet new friends, start a hobby or spend some time just hanging out. There's a lot to discover on campus.
The Office of Student Life houses Student Government, Student Fee Committee, Student Clubs, Cascades Adventures, Intramurals, and campus-wide programming. Signature events include Welcome Week, Trunk or Treat, MLK Day of Service, Fermentation Education, and the Bend Beavs Variety Show.
Make yourself at home in our state-of-the-art residence hall. Here, you'll make friends that last a lifetime.
Life outside of class is important. There's a club with your name on it.
Bend is minutes from world-class skiing at Mt. Bachelor, and that’s just the beginning.
Studying well, choosing a major, tutoring, class schedules, healthy relationships, finding an internship and more — our student success team has the tools to help you.
You can explore all Bend has to offer with Cascades Adventures, our student-led outdoor trips program. Summit the South Sister, camp under the stars or float the Deschutes River with a new group of friends.
OSU-Cascades Beaver Dam dining (inside Obsidian Hall) is a favorite gathering place for students and faculty. Our talented chefs and student staff create and serve daily soups, salads, and specials — from multiple stations — that are nutritious, delicious and largely scratch prepared. The Beaver Dam offers a wide variety of foods to satisfy dietary requirements and requests, and are always open to working one-on-one with students.
