Together you are...

Globetrotting and world-changing

Together, you call 49 states and 14 countries home. Equipped with knowledge, passion and a top-ranked degree, you are ready to make a truly global impact — no matter where you live and work.


Record-breakers who have set the bar high

All 1,680 of you have already accomplished something special together — you're the largest graduating class in the history of Oregon State Ecampus. You formed a global support network, and you proved there’s strength in numbers.

Experts in science, art and everything in between

Thanks to years of training in one of 54 degree programs represented in your graduating class, you have developed the skill, leadership and grit that Beavers have brought to the workplace for more than 150 years.

Resilient, persistent and flat out impressive

Earning a degree online is already a feat of strength, balancing priorities like a juggler riding a unicycle on a tightrope. Even more amazing — while the whole world faced unprecedented challenges, you never stopped moving forward.


Truly unique

You are here, today, representing the unique communities and cultures that make you you. Many of you are the first in your families to earn a college degree. Even more of you learned while on active duty or as military veterans. Others bring generations of wisdom older than Oregon State itself as part of our vibrant and growing Indigenous student population.

You are working parents, small business owners, volunteers and leaders in your neighborhood, city or tribe. And together, what makes each of you unique has combined to create one of the most diverse graduating classes ever at Oregon State.
