As a result of university efforts to engage in social distancing to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, campus tours and open house programs will be canceled through April 30. This includes Spring Preview Day, Admitted Student Day, group tours and all daily tours. If you've registered for one of these programs, an admissions representative will be in touch. Please refer to campus-wide updates here.
For groups like ASPIRE, AVID, GEAR UP, TRiO, and high school or community college groups. We offer groups larger than 10 a guided walking tour of campus and a general information session about the university.
We have preview days during the year to provide you an in-depth look at OSU-Cascades. You'll have the opportunity to meet with current students, learn about the admissions process, explore different academic interests, find out about our on-campus living options, and much more.
Nothing beats a visit to OSU's Bend campus. Take a tour, check out our beautiful new housing, and eat fresh, local food in the Beaver Dam.
The Welcome Center is located on the first floor of the residence hall building on the OSU-Cascades campus.
