Beginning this summer, OSU’s College of Business and OSU Summer Session are teaming up to offer OSU students the chance to earn a business and entrepreneurship minor in just two summers on campus in Corvallis and online.
While many students say flexibility is what drives them to enroll in on-campus classes during summer term, others say their motivation includes additional perks unique to OSU Summer Session.
“I love the opportunities I have to share with students, parents, community members and other stakeholders about the importance summer can play in a student’s success at OSU,” says OSU Summer Session Marketing Program Manager Ali Duerfeldt.
The goal of the trip was to offer students a unique honors experience during which they connect with faculty, build community with other students and learn about topics, such as Newton or early modern English literature, that have strong and specific ties to the city of London and its resources.
For civil engineering student Hussain Al Balushi, the OSU Summer Session #myOSUsummer photo contest wasn’t just something he happened to stumble upon while on social media. It’s one he’s had marked on his calendar since last year and is part of the reason he deliberately stayed in Corvallis for this summer instead of heading home to Oman for the break.
OSU Summer Session is kicking off this year’s #myOSUsummer photo contest beginning on June 20, and it’ll last five weeks.
John Matthews isn’t interested in discussing whether or not climate change is real. His goal is to create a collaborative environment where people of diverse backgrounds work together to find sustainable solutions to climate change and climate adaptation.
“I like being able to turn my ideas into real things, and ever since I started practicing with graphic design, I’ve grown to like it more and more,” says Francisco Boschetti Tofano, 2016 Summer Session T-shirt Design Contest winner.
“I enjoy working with the campus community and the challenges presented to find unique and innovative ways to implement new programs within Summer Session,” says Summer Session Assistant Director Reni Powell.
“I was debating if I should take summer classes this year, but with this $200 scholarship, I am definitely staying here for the summer,” says Isadora Costa Cardoso.
