Without a physical campus location to visit, Oregon State’s online learners needed a clear-cut path to important mental health resources, so Ecampus faculty and staff partnered with Counseling and Psychological Services and the Student Care Team to lay the foundation.

The first in a legacy of many

The past does not dictate the possibilities for one’s future. Erin Mathias knows this firsthand. She enrolled online in the Ecampus fisheries and wildlife sciences program to pursue her dream career, becoming the role model she needed when she was younger and serving as inspiration to her siblings and African American girls who want to enter STEM fields.
