Graduate students raise money for food bank

The Coalition of Graduate Employees at OSU joined with a similar group from the University of Oregon to raise money and food for their regional food banks last month. The money and food were collected at a concert held the evening before the Civil War football game. The OSU students raised more than $500 for their local food bank.

“We were amazed at how much we were able to do together. We gave the canned food to Food for Lane County in Eugene and the money went to Linn Benton Food Share here in Corvallis, “ said Rob Hess, president of the OSU Coalition of Graduate Employees.

The Navy ROTC Unit at Oregon State University recently hosted a ceremony during which two graduating Midshipman were commissioned Ensigns in the United Sated Navy.  On Friday Dec. 10, family, friends and the Midshipmen of the “Beaver Battalion” gathered to witness and celebrate this milestone event.

Being commissioned were  Ensign Max Geiszler, a computer science major and Ensign Jordan Landauer, an electronic and computer engineering major (Magna cum Laude).  ENS Max Geiszler will serve as a Surface Warfare Officer and ENS Jordan Landauer will attend Nuclear Power School in Charleston, SC followed by service in Submarines.

The NROTC program was established to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, loyalty and Navy core values in order to commission college graduates as Naval officers.  Those who complete the program possess the basic professional background and are motivated toward careers in the Naval service.
