Beaver Hangouts

Beaver Hangouts Our coaches are OSU students who talk to classes in Oregon via Skype, Google Hangouts, or WebEx, about post secondary pathways.

Beaver Hangouts is a virtual mentoring program that provides college access education to underserved K-12 classrooms across Oregon, via Skype. Throughout the year College Access Coaches, made up of OSU students, connect with their classrooms every other week to discuss overcoming college barriers and the importance of pursuing post-secondary education. The coaches give their students an inside look at college life, provide grade-specific programming on college access, and even invite the classrooms to tour the University at the end of the year. Beaver Hangouts is completely free and easily adaptable to fit your classroom’s needs. All that is required from the classroom is a computer, webcam, and videoconferencing platform. We take care of all the rest! Goals for Beaver Hangouts: 1. Combating barriers to college access intervention, such as distance, cost, and lack of resources or initiative. 2. Providing the proper tools and guidance necessary for all students to attain their highest educational potential, regardless of socioeconomic status. 3. Create a college-going culture in every school we partner with and instilling the belief that every student has the ability to attain a post-secondary education if they so choose. 4. Serve a minimum of 650 students for the 2015-2016 academic year. Historical Success of Beaver Hangouts 2012-2013: 80 students served by one college access coach. 2013-2014: 170 students served by two college access coaches. 2014-2015: 435 students served by 20 college access coaches. At Beaver Hangouts, we believe college isn't a dream, it's a plan. For more information, email us at [email protected]

We are over half-way through fall term #BeaverNation! For this week’s #BeaverHangouts spotlight, we are recognizing the coaching team of Athena and Tegan! They coach sessions together and work to emphasize that even though they are studying the same major, nobody has the same experiences in college.

Athena’s favorite reaction from students in her sessions is when she sees her students become excited and is able to joke around with them, whereas Tegan’s favorite reaction from a student is when she hears them talk about their passions like building robots.

Great to have you two with the program! #GoBeavs #OSU

Hello #BeaverNation! This week’s #BeaverHangouts spotlight will recognize Colin Shearmire! Currently, he is a senior at #OSU studying history and education with aspirations to become a teacher. Colin has been with the Beaver Hangouts program for over three years now!

His favorite question to be asked by his students is, “Are you enjoying your time in college?”, Colin responded with “I have enjoyed my time at OSU a ton, I have met so many driven and caring people that I consider to be really good friends. I have also gotten involved in countless leadership activities and clubs that really helped me broaden my horizons.”

Keep up the great work Colin! #GoBeavs

Diversity & Cultural Engagement - Oregon State University

Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we share this message. Our friend, mentor, colleague, elder, witness, storyteller, and joyful comrade in this struggle for justice, Oscar Humberto Montemayor is passing on. During the last three decades, Oscar has served the Oregon State University community faithfully and diligently from his work with the College Assistance Migrant Program to more recently serving as the Associate Director for Academic Success with DCE. He was loved, respected, and cherished by all who met him. In service of his vision to "get to know one another" as he used to say, we encourage deep reflection over his life for all it meant, for the barriers he knocked down, and to the change he made in the lives of students, faculty, staff, and his entire community.

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to join us for a space of sharing, storytelling, and memory at the Centro Cultural Cesar Chavez from 11 am until 1 pm tomorrow, Friday, October 21. Oscar touched many lives and we encourage all who felt his warm presence to share in a Celebration of Life on October 31 at 1 pm in Reser Stadium.

In this time of devastating loss we ask that you be in community in the many ways Oscar taught us to be in a beloved, humble community.

In Profound Grief,
The DCE Family
