OSU schedules preview day of prospective students


CORVALLIS - Students curious about university life, including financial aid, housing and admissions, will have an opportunity to get their questions answered at Oregon State University's Preview OSU day on Friday, Oct. 11.

Designed for high school and community college students, Preview OSU coincides with a statewide in-service day for teachers. The half-day session starts at 11:30 a.m. with optional OSU tours.

Registration begins at noon at the CH2M HILL Alumni Center. For information, contact the OSU Student Orientation and Retention Program at 1-800-291-4192 or 541-737-2626. Preview OSU offers students a variety of sessions with topics touching on admission to a university, financial aid and scholarships; academic presentations; a question-and-answer session for students and parents; and campus and living group tours.

Of particular interest to community college students is a session on transfer credit evaluation. Students will have another opportunity to catch a look at campus during Beaver Open House, which is scheduled on Saturday, Nov. 9. The all-day event is designed for high school seniors, community college transfers, and others interested in attending OSU. Pre-registration is advised.

Among the highlights of Beaver Open House are opportunities to meet with current OSU students to discuss university life.

Students unable to attend Preview OSU or Beaver Open House should call the OSU Student Orientation and Retention Program and arrange a personal tour.
