MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service

Oregon State’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration kicks off today, Monday, Jan. 13th and continues through Jan. 24th. “OSU’s celebration is one of the oldest continuous MLK events in the state. It is organized each year by a group of OSU community members convened by the Office of Equity and Inclusion.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

This year Oregon State University’s MLK Day of Service is put on by OSU’s Center for Civic Engagement and the Student Events and Activities Center/Community & Cultural Meal Program. This day of service will take place Saturday, January 18th. The event and celebration is open to students, staff, faculty and their children/dependents. There are over 9 different service projects to take apart in this year and they range from mentoring at the Jackson Street Youth Shelter to home building with Benton Habitat for Humanity. Registration and a complete list of all available projects can be found here.

Pre- registration is required, and all participants will assemble at McAlexander Fieldhouse from 8:30am to 11:30am. Food is provided! For more information please visit the website.

Beavers Return from the Hawaiian Islands Victorious

December 30th, 2013

On December 24th, 2013 Beaver Football went head-to-head against the Boise State Broncos at the annual Sheraton Hawaii Bowl. The Beavers were quick to put the Broncos away with a 38-23 win, but the trip to Honolulu served more than just a trip to paradise and a battle on the gridiron.

Over the course of the week leading up to the game, the team toured Pearl Harbor, tried out surfing, attended a beautiful luau (including lots of hula), and of course soaked up a lot of that famous Hawaiian sunshine. And for more than a handful of Beavers, the Hawaii Bowl served as a trip home and a chance to put their football program on display for local family and friends. Rumor has it that one player had over 100 family and friends in attendance on Wednesday’s game!

 

The Beaver Football team poses before their 38-23 win over the Boise State Broncos.

 

The 2013 Beavers were more than happy to compete in the Hawaii Bowl and represent the state of Oregon, but the bowl also served as a renewal of OSU’s longstanding ties to Hawaii (dating back to 1923)! Oregon State was also the first to compete in Hawaii’s “Pineapple Bowl” in 1940. Additionally, out of seventeen OSU bowl appearances, nearly a quarter have been played in the state of Hawaii.

It seems as though the after this battle was over, the tie to Hawaii and the bond that players and coaches share with the islands will continue to go on for years and years to come.

Go Beavers!

One of Oregon State’s newest buildings has received its official name. What was formally known as the Student Success Center has been officially name the Beth Ray Center for Academic Support. The building was named after the First Lady of OSU in honor of her decade long commitment to personal and leadership contributions to the university.

The Beth Ray Center for Academic Support adds 34,000 square feet of space for students to study, socialize and receive support. The building contains state-of-the-art computer labs, study lounges with soaring ceilings, a rooftop patio, academic counseling and advising offices, meeting rooms and tutorial spaces. The second and third floors are home to two transition programs for students, September Scholars and the BEST Program, a similar program for student-athletes.
