Oregon University System Tour Rides Again!

September 20th, 2011


Oregon’s seven public universities are getting ready to kick off the annual Oregon University System Fall Tour! Last year, the tour reached an estimated 20,000 students at over 200 public and private high schools across the state. New to the tour this year is OSU’s Cascades campus.

During the tour, students are able to receive information about the eight different campuses as well as learn and ask questions about financial aid, core college requirements, and other opportunities that are available to them in helping plan their future.

The tour kicks off next Monday, September 26th and goes through October 28th. A brief summary of the tour schedule is below. To view the full schedule and contact your county’s admission advisor, visit http://oregonstate.edu/admissions/recruit-map-0.

In a statement released through OUS, Joe Holliday, the OUS Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Success Initiatives stated that “The fall tour is a truly a remarkable collaboration between all of our campus admissions personnel and Oregon high schools. High school students and counselors value and appreciate the events and face-to-face conversations with admissions staff, and the admissions reps do a great job expanding students’ awareness of the wide variety of diverse and quality programs our public universities offer. Many high school students don’t know just how many opportunities they have right here in Oregon.”
