About the OSU Alumni Association

The alumni association was founded on Monday, Feb. 3, 1873, at a meeting held in President Benjamin Lee Arnold's office in the old Corvallis College building located downtown. Official approval for the group and the election of officers took place on June 18. The Association has been in continuous service since that time and is today the oldest organization on campus not directly related to academics.

The association is a member-based, nonprofit organization that promotes OSU and engages alumni. Its programs include a web site for alumni, the Oregon Stater magazine, reunions, scholarships, regional activities, faculty lecture series, travel opportunities, tailgaters and more. It is located in the CH2M HILL Alumni Center, which also serves as a conference center.
