You did it! You're here. Begin your journey at OSU-Cascades with an action-packed week of activities. You'll connect with other incoming Bend Beavs, learn more about our campus community, and have fun trying new things. Open to all new first-year and transfer students.
OSU-Cascades is planning to deliver in-person Headwaters New Student Orientation Outdoor Trips (Sept.15-19) and Fall Welcome (Sept. 19-24) for all new first-year and transfer students. These extracurricular orientation experiences prepare new students for college life at OSU-Cascades and statistically improve retention rates.
We are using CampusGroups to facilitate Headwaters and Fall Welcome. CampusGroups is our campus-wide virtual platform where you can find events, resources, clubs, and more. All new students have been added to this platform, which can be accessed with your ONID username and password. You can learn more about CampusGroups on our technical information webpage.
If you are a newly admitted student, please take a moment to register for Headwaters (optional) and Fall Welcome (highly encouraged) using CampusGroups.
“As someone who experienced Fall Welcome as a first year student, I was able to fully immerse myself in my new environment with my new peers. This program is a wonderful opportunity to get connected and make memories!” -M.L. Hudson ‘21
