I can’t believe it’s already that time of year. Our students have arrived for Connect Week! On my drive in to work this morning I was greeted by an ENORMOUS line of students waiting for tickets to this Thursday’s USC game stretching from Gill Coliseum on 26th Ave. to the Indoor Practice Facility on 30th Ave.

…And this doesn’t even BEGIN to capture the length of this line. Consider that where these students are is a full city block from the ticket office. OSU Athletics officials said all 6,000 student tickets are expected to be distributed by the end of the day. I know that the first couple days of college are supposed to involve standing in some lines, but this is ridiculous!
Seriously though, standing in the Monday morning line for football tickets is one of many great traditions here on campus. Beaver Football wouldn’t be the same without it!
In other news, I am about to hit the road for fall recruitment. I am going to try and bring you a first person view of what it’s like on the road for an Admissions Representative. Expect to see my first dispatch from the NACAC Conference in Seattle. More on that to come!
To the newest (and returning) Beavers: Welcome and GO BEAVS!
