Greetings, Portland Beavers!

There’s no shortage of Oregon State spirit in Portland – nearly a quarter of all alumni live in this area. Our job as regional network directors is to make it easier for you to connect with other Beavers at events that suit your needs – whether social, educational or professional.

We cannot do any of this without your help. We are looking for alumni and friends to volunteer and share ideas that will help us expand Oregon State’s reach in our region. Do you have ideas for events or projects that will help us grow the OSU network in Portland? Please let us know. Together, we can promote the university, bring Beavers together and build a powerful OSU volunteer network throughout the region.

Please reach out with your ideas, comments and questions. We can’t wait to hear from you. Better yet, we hope to meet you in person at an upcoming event.

And, as always, Go Beavers!
