01/03/2005

CORVALLIS - Minority students and other under-represented populations interested in higher education will have an opportunity to get their questions answered at Oregon State University's Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures on Saturday, Jan. 15.

Designed for high school and community college students, Kaleidoscope is an opportunity for students to explore university life, financial aid, housing and admissions. In addition, students will be able to get information about OSU's academic programs, social opportunities and support services.

A highlight of Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures is the opportunity to interact with faculty and staff in addition to meeting with current OSU students to discuss experiences and university life.

The program begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Memorial Union. Pre-registration is recommended and is available online at http://oregonstate.edu/soar/visit/kaleidoscope.html. For information, contact the OSU Student Orientation and Retention Office at 541-737-7627 or soar@oregonstate.edu.
