2013 Western Region
Administrative Officers Meeting
Please join us for the 2013 Western Region Administrative Officers Meeting on the campus of Oregon State University, Corvallis, a vibrant college town in the heart of Western Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Corvallis was recently ranked as the 5th best college town, and consistently ranks one of the safest, smartest and greenest small cities in the nation. Situated 90 miles south of Portland, and an hour from the Cascades or the Pacific Coast, Corvallis is the perfect home base for Beaver Nation. Oregon State’s 420-acre campus is just blocks from downtown Corvallis. One of only a handful of universities listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the campus features stately buildings, seasonal landscaping and green, open spaces.
