The Oregon University System Tour has brought admissions officers from Oregonâ€™s seven public universities to high schools statewide and it is expected to reach 228 high schools and 13,000 students across the state. That’s right. Each of the universities put their rivalries aside and travel together in a 15 passenger van for the good of the students in the state of Oregon. Some of you may have had an OUS Tour stop by your area high school to learn about pursuing higher education opportunities.
During the tour, students were able to connect with at least seven Oregon public universities as well as learn about financial aid and core college requirements that can help and inspire them while planning for the future.
The end of the tour is this Friday, and representatives have collaboratively worked together to promote staying in the state. Some of the many benefits of Oregon residents pursuing a public university in Oregon include in state tuition, a variety of majors and learning environments and nationally recognized academic programs.
After conclusion of the tour, high school counselors and students may be able to have a return high school visit from Oregon State University who can can talk about the opportunity to learn more in detail about the next steps in applying to the university. These are arranged by each assigned representative and are based on scheduling availability. You can contact your county’s advisor by visiting:
