What is CEOAS and what does it stand for?

C We are a proud College within Oregon State University.
E We study and learn together about the Earth and our environment, including everything that happens under our feet as well as how life functions on our planet.
O We study the mysteries of the Oceans, from tidepools and beaches, to waves and currents, to the deepest seas.
A The study of the Atmosphere includes the climate and weather.
S These topics together create a complex web of interrelated Sciences that require study to understand. CEOAS teaches students and conducts research on how we can best understand the world around us to improve our lives and the world we live in.

In other words, CEOAS stands for this wonderful spaceship we call Earth and everything that lives on it.
