This fall, Oregon State will be offering new a new master’s and doctoral degree program in robotics! OSU will now be part of one of a few universities in the U.S. to offer such programs and will place Beaver Nation at the forefront of robotics research and education.

“We’re talking about driverless cars, improved care for the elderly and disabled, robotic surgery, and robotic limbs,” said Kagan Tumer, an OSU professor of mechanical engineering. “The impact of robotics is extending beyond factories and labs, into the everyday lives of ordinary citizens, and we envision OSU graduates as becoming leaders of these changes.”

For more information about the robotics program at OSU, visit robotics.oregonstate.edu/.

OSU Research

The Oregonian highlights Oregon State as as “Oregon’s best big research university:”

Oregon State ranked high for admitting lots of low-income students, giving reasonable financial aid to students from families making less than $75,000 and getting a high proportion of its students to graduate.

Oregon State also has a high number of students who join the Peace Corp or ROTC. Last year, Oregon State had over $285 million dollars in research funding. All of this combined, and much more, make Oregon State one of the top institutions in the U.S. Way to go Beaver Nation!

Freshman 15? Oregon State says it’s a myth!

August 20th, 2014

Have you heard of the phrase the “Freshman 15”? If not, this is a common phrase amongst college students implying that in your first year you will gain 15 pounds as you experience eating whatever you want, whenever you want! But a 2009 Oregon State study showed that the average first-year students puts on somewhere between 3 to 7 pounds. The study also indicates that men are more likely to gain weight then women in that freshman year.

The habits you form in your freshman year move with you throughout your college years and beyond. So how can you survive? Today posted an article providing tips for students to avoid the “freshman diet”:

  • Navigating the dining hall maze
  • Keep moving!
  • Social calories
  • Eating your feelings aka comfort food
  • It is a balancing act!

Oregon State offers a variety of options for on campus dining, student access to the Dixon Recreation Center, the Healthy Campus Initiative, and many other services available for students to encourage and support a healthy lifestyle!

Go Beavs,
