Welcome Future OSU Beavers!

Posted September 14th, 2010 by staff

As fall term approaches, the Oregon State University campus has begun to fill up with students – throwing frisbees on the quad, hitting the library in preparation for classes, and spending time with friends.

Beaver Bulleting BoardHowever, in Phoenix, Arizona, a hopeful group of future OSU students are well into their school year.  Marisa Egley’s sixth grade ESL class at Palomino Intermediate School has adopted Oregon State University for the second year in a row as part of the “No Excuses University” program, designed to encourage a college-going culture starting in elementary school.  Precollege Programs has supported numerous classrooms over the past several years and provides the students and teachers with decorations, supplies and correspondence in order to extend our outreach across the country.

An orange-and-black bedecked bulletin board greets students in the hallway, proclaiming theirPalomino Beavers OSU allegiance.  The words of the fight song are posted – which the students are practicing every Friday, when they wear their college t-shirts, generously provided by the Office of Admissions.  Each 6th grader in the class may just be “Quite Possibly the Smartest Person in This Room” as their shirts imply, as they are already thinking and working towards college.  Good luck to all of the future OSU Beavers – work hard and dream big!

    The Precollege Program at Oregon State University sounds like a very creative and innovative approach to getting students interested in a college education and the enriching opportunities a higher education brings to life. As an alumnus of OSU and Arizona Department of Education staff, I am interested in coming in and speaking to the class in person! Please contact me at your convenience to make arrangements. Thank you.

    One thing I’d like to reply to is that fat reduction plan fast can be achieved by the perfect diet and exercise. Someone’s size not simply affects the look, but also the actual quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, along with physical abilities are afflicted in an increase in weight. It is possible to do everything right but still gain. In such a circumstance, a medical problem may be the culprit. While a lot food and never enough body exercise are usually responsible, common medical ailments and widely used prescriptions can greatly increase size. Kudos for your post here.
