Ice cream float

Fall Social welcomes students to science

By Debbie Farris
Fall Ice Cream Social 2018

The College of Science invites all new and returning science students to our annual Fall Welcoming Social on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. on the Valley Library Quad outside of Kidder Hall. New science students are urged to attend to learn more about the academic, career and extracurricular opportunities available in our College and at OSU.

Stop by and enjoy ice cream and sorbet floats while connecting with current science students and new ones. You can learn how to get involved in campus life, where to meet people, where the best study spots are on campus and where the science tutoring centers are like the Mole Hole, Worm Hole, Math and Statistics Learning Center and more. Faculty, professional advisors, career development staff and Peer Advisors will be on hand to share advice about courses, study habits, registration, time management tips and what a life of science at Oregon State is all about.

New this year - and not to be missed - are the giant bubbles and a photo booth.

You can chat with representatives from our science student clubs across many disciplines. Science students are some of the most active on campus. Getting involved in a science club can be such a rewarding experience. It helps make the most of classroom learning, can put you on the best path for your career and makes it easier to connect with our science community. Science organizations can even help you build leadership skills and expand your social circle.

While you enjoy the ice cream and mingle, we encourage you to meet our 25-plus Peer Advisors. Housed in College's Science Success Center, Peer Advisors are sophomore, junior and senior science students who are trained extensively on the services, programs, techniques and resources to help you navigate campus services, registration, study abroad, internships, research opportunities, clubs and more. They can offer assistance via phone, email and one-on-one in-person meetings.

Welcome to Oregon State Science! All returning science students are welcome to join us, too!

This event is supported by the College of Science, thanks to generous support from alumni and friends.
