Over the years we have gotten questions about how we inform students about CONNECT events.  Below is a list of ways in which NSPFO publicizes CONNECT to new students:

  • Talked about throughout START
  • Mailer at the beginning of September
  • E-newsletter sent the week before move-in
  • Website: connect.oregonstate.edu
  • OSU Guide App (through google play and Itunes)
  • Large daily printed schedules that are put up in the MU, Dixon and Dining Centers
  • Daily electronic schedules sent to campus (this is an internal document and new this year)
  • We do not produce printed schedules for students; because we found that events are ever changing, adjusting and being added and cancelled and usually whatever was printed was out of date by the time CONNECT arrived.
