Oregon Stater marks a century
Welcome to a little piece of history, the centennial issue of the Oregon Stater. In October 1915, the General Alumni Association of Oregon Agricultural College in Corvallis published Volume 1, Number 1 of the O.A.C. Alumnus, noting the need for "a permanent magazine" to help the institution’s "hundreds of alumni" stay close the college.

Stater highlights

A century of storytelling
George Edmonston Jr.'s 20-year run as editor of the Oregon Stater is unmatched in the 100-year history of the magazine. A passionate historian by academic training and a devoted Beaver by personal bent and official proclamation - the OSU Alumni Association gave him its Joan Austin Honorary Alumni Award in 2007, the year after he retired - he was the obvious and only choice to give Stater readers a sense of how the magazine has chronicled the life and times of our favorite university and its people over the years.
