A reason to cheer: Summer's almost here
Stuck in the midst of a drab and dark winter, we have been granted these recent days of sunshine and warmth for one reason: to preview the awesomeness of a summer spent taking classes at Oregon State University.
Registration for OSU Summer Session is on the horizon, and now's the time to start planning your summer on campus. This newsletter contains a ton of resources to help you do just that.
First, check out the summer schedule of classes. There are nearly 1,300 classes to choose from in more than 100 subjects, meaning we have something for everyone – including you. (So don't say we never got you anything.)
Want more? There are an additional 300-plus courses offered online via OSU Ecampus so that you can enjoy the perks of summer term no matter where you are.

Top 3 reasons to take summer classes
Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should stick around for flip-flop season in Corvallis:
1. Graduate sooner. This is like being offered free food – you never turn it down. Jump ahead in your studies (and ease your future course load) by taking anywhere from one to a handful of classes. Summer students can even complete a full sequence of science or foreign language courses in one term.
2. Save money. Everyone pays in-state tuition for OSU Summer Session classes, meaning you can save money for the important things in life, like frozen pizza.
3. Be more engaged. With smaller class sizes during summer term, you have a better chance to interact more closely with your instructors and classmates. That results in an enhanced learning environment, and that means you'll be even smarter than you already are. Pretty cool, right?
Facebook and Twitter – two excellent ways to keep in touch
Stay connected with everything that's happening at OSU this summer by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter.
During the summer, we'll give you weekly coupons for discounted food and activities on and around campus, and keep you posted on events like OSU's Battle of the Bands, Flat Tail Music Festival and the revamped Wednesdays @ Noon Concert Series – all of which are sponsored by OSU Summer Session.
