Welcome Week Submissions for 2016 as closed, so that we can adequately prepared schedules and materials for publicity.  If you have any questions or need to update any event listed, please email newstudents@oregonstate.edu

Submission Tips

  • Please be aware of the signature events and don't submit events that conflict

  • The text in your submission is what will be published., so please word the titles and descriptions for how you would like the audience to read it.

  • Have a starting and ending time and a confirmed location.

  • Keep the title of your event simple and somewhat obvious...we find if students don't understand what the title means they won't go.

  • It's okay to program at the same time as another event (as long as it isn't a signature event), especially if it is an open house or drop-in events, students will come and go.

  • Welcome week is a FULL week and we need to have programming all week long.  We encourage you to host open houses, drop-in type events, or events that are open to all students on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
