Friday the 13th is scary for the TOUR office

Well, not scary in the ‘boo, I scared you’ sense….more scary in the scary busy sense!

As we reach the tail end of what ends up being 5 weeks of spring break visitors (Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, California are seemingly all on different breaks), tomorrow, Friday the 13th, will bring a whopping 75 registered visitors to our campus for a tour. Another 60 are registered for our last Saturday Tour of the year. In the first three days of this week, our office saw 120 students. Today was our ‘slow’ day with 29 registered visitors. And when I say visitors, I mean students. That doesn’t count the family members that accompany the students.

For students interested in visiting OSU and meeting with our amazing TOUR staffers, be sure to see our Visit OSU website to schedule a visit or see upcoming program dates.

    Wow! Keep this up and OSU will be competing with Disneyland for “most visited destination.” “Nice job” to everyone in the Visitor Center!

    Wow! What a fun few weeks we have had in the Visitor Center! A big “Thank You� goes out to all our visitors who traveled long distances to experience Oregon State firsthand. And a humungous THANK YOU goes to all the brilliant staff members who brought their best selves to work each day and showed off their school to our prospective students.

    Go Beavers!

    The visitor center has already topped Disneyland for happiest place on earth…So why not go for most visited too!
