The Beaver Connect program connects new-to-OSU students, peer mentors and faculty members to ease the student transition to college, facilitate faculty-student interaction and build a network of support to help students succeed during their time at OSU. Students are placed on teams that meet up to five times per term during the first year. They discuss how to be successful when applying for scholarships, finding research opportunities and exploring career paths.
Most years, Student Experiences & Engagement oversees about 400 clubs and organizations. Find one that fits with your passion!

The award-winning Diversity Learning Assistant (DLA) program in UHDS promotes inclusive and welcoming communities in the residence halls, cooperative houses and dining facilities through workshops and programs. DLAs are peer educators who work with student staff and student leaders.
This program focuses on peer-to-peer connections for international students, who come to OSU from nearly 100 countries. The team facilitates participation in community, recreational and educational activities.
Through our many programs, Student Experiences & Engagement provides hands-on experiences that can help you find a sense of belonging, build skills for employability, challenge your heart and mind, make new connections, amplify your strengths, help you connect to purpose, lift your spirit and support you living your best life.
The OSU Program Council is a student-led, student-driven organization, which plans and produces meaningful events. We are committed to serving the Oregon State community by upholding traditions and creating inclusive programming that enhances the college experience.
We believe a better campus, a better community, a better experience happens when we come together. You are a student. You have a voice. Make it known — apply to be on a committee or to volunteer, register for an ASOSU internship or attend one of our events. We also have resources to help students navigate their educational experience.
