Each year, the Student Services Office is pleased to offer several unique and exciting events to students to improve your educational experience at the Oregon State University College of Forestry. In addition to these, we also keep a current listing of important upcoming dates below. Check back often to be sure you are up to date!



Annual Ring

Annual Ring is organized by the College of Forestry for incoming undergraduate students as an official welcome to the forestry family and an opportunity to meet and socialize with fellow students and the faculty and staff of the college. Events vary from year to year, but we always have a barbecue at the Forestry Club Cabin in the McDonald-Dunn Forest, informative and recreational events, and games with fun prizes to win, and more!

Annual Ring is held during Welcome Week, and invitations are mailed to incoming students around Labor Day.

Annual Ring 2015 will be held on September 22nd.  Check back during summer 2015 for more details.
