Happy Homecoming!

Homecoming 2013

Homecoming is a time for nostalgia, renewed friendships and most of all, football. The 2013 Homecoming football game will be played at Reser Stadium on Saturday against Stanford University and in front of an enthusiastic crowd of Beaver believers. But homecoming is more than just a football game to the thousands of alumni that will make their way “home” to Corvallis for the week’s festivities.

Spirit week begins on Monday with a photo contest, OSU history scavenger hunt and building decorations. The Homecoming Parade will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday starting at 6th and Jefferson and ending at the bonfire behind the Hilton Garden Inn on campus.

Friday is packed with events including the Homecoming Trivia Bowl, more Student Alumni Association-sponsored activities including the Alumni Fellows and Young Alumni Awards Celebration and the women’s soccer game vs. the University of California. Many busy beavers will spend Saturday morning and afternoon tailgating before the big game.

There are many Beaver-themed options for those that can’t make it to Corvallis and find themselves home in the Portland area. The OSU Alumni Association has organized game watches all over the country, including Portland. Plenty of people gather each Saturday to root on the Beavers in rooms full of orange-and-black clad fans.

Here are just a few options in the Portland area to join other members of Beavers Nation to watch the game. For more visit the OSU Alumni Association’s main listing.
