We Are All Student Life

The Office of Student Life includes the Associated Students of the Cascades Campus, Student Fee Committee, Student Organizations, Recreation, Events Council, and Student Life Marketing. Together, we provide all undergraduate and graduate students with support services and extracurricular programming.

The Student Life newsletter will continue to be emailed monthly to all students, staff, and faculty with upcoming event updates, information, and interactive activities. Submissions are due by the first Saturday of each month to comusq@oregonstate.edu which will post on the first Sunday of each month.

The Office of Student Life invites newly-admitted students to a variety of fun and engaging virtual programming this summer. Meet your fellow Bend Beavs, learn more about our campus community, and prepare for Welcome Week! We encourage students to participate in as many virtual events as possible.
