Welcome All New OSU Students!

Each fall, Oregon State University welcomes the incoming class of students at the New Student Convocation ceremony. Convocation, which literally translates as "come together," is a ceremony in which we welcome all new students to campus. Due to social distancing, we are not able to gather in-person this year and hope that you enjoy these welcome videos from OSU President F. King Alexander, Provost and Executive Vice President Edward Feser, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Charlene Alexander, and Vice Provost for Student Affairs Dan Larson.


We're here to help every student succeed.
