Friends of the Beaver AGU

Friends of the Beaver AGU will be held on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 from 6:00–8:00pm at Jillian's at Metreon, 175 Fourth Street. The event will be held in their Private lounge and each attendee will receive 2 drink tickets for beer or wine. Soda and iced tea will be available along with a menu of snacks served on a flow basis. Spinach dip, cheese, vegetables, hummus, nothing fancy.
CEOAS will also host an exhibitor booth. Booth number is 2142. CEOAS welcomes current students and faculty to volunteer time at the booth. Contact Robert Allan at rallan@coas.oregonstate.edu for questions or to volunteer. Consider this place a working base as you navigate the conference. Our booth is not located in the academic showcase, rather in the more populated exhibitor area.

We'd Like to Stay in Contact with You

Three times a year, we plan to send an e-newsletter to alumni, highlighting stories about students, researchers, other alumni, and upcoming events. We also plan to send an annual print piece with highlights and may send occasional postcards if there is a major event, such as Geology's 100th anniversary celebrations next year. Certain degree programs, such as Marine Resource Management, offer an opt-in listserv of open job postings in the industry. If you would like us to be able to find you, please fill out this Alumni Contact Form, which will be emailed to the Office of the Dean. Thank you.
