LIFE@OSU is the official news magazine for faculty, staff, graduate teaching and research assistants and other employees of Oregon State University. LIFE@OSU seeks to tell the stories of the people and programs of Oregon State.

LIFE@OSU is intended to promote a civil discourse on campus and to foster a greater sense of community among the OSU work force. Toward that end, we encourage you to submit your story ideas. If you know someone on campus who has an interesting job or fascinating interests outside of the workplace, we’d like to know about them. Feel free to submit news of honors and awards, or outstanding work by fellow employees. Of course, we’re open to your ideas on other news and features, as well. Send them to lifeatosu@oregonstate.edu.
