Congress then votes Tuesday and Wednesday, and they are looking for student feedback on the recommended reductions of the Incidental Fee or live during the meeting. Check back at noon Monday for full incidental fee submissions from each unit and for a link to provide your feedback. Congress will review these recommendations before they meet to vote whether or not to accept the reduction.

The ASOSU COVID-19 page will provide updates to the student body on what the ASOSU is doing related to the outbreak, and will be updated with new information as there are developments. The link below will take you to ASOSU’s latest update on the context and parameters on the incidental fee reduction, further context behind the health and building fees: https://asosu.oregonstate.edu/covid-19

Hi folks! We have heard and seen a bunch of questions regarding the student incidental fee, the building fee, and the health fee for next term. ASOSU has been working diligently this spring break, along with each student fee funded unit, their student advisory boards, and the student advisory board liaisons, to come up with a reduced student fee for Spring of 2020. While reducing the student fee, we also have been working hard to maintain student employment which is paid for by a significant portion of the student fee. Please see the included infographics for more information on each of the fees and the reasoning behind focusing on the student incidental fee. If you have any questions, feedback, or comments please reach out to [email protected]. We will be posting updates to the ASOSU Instagram and Facebook, and should have more information soon!

We hope that you all are taking care of yourselves during this time, and know that we hear you, and we are working hard to make sure that your voices, wants, and needs are accommodated by the University.

Can you please give us a definitive answer on whether or not classes will be online so those of us that don't have to be in corvallis won't get stuck in a lease. Most of us need to decide to sign leases or not in the next few weeks.
Good engineering college, the smartest students attend from all over the country and around the world. We transport many of the students to/from Eugene Airport. $60 to/from OSU/Corvallis & Eugene Airport. Cheaper than Uber/Lyft. EZ pp/web booking. Thank you!!!

Looking for a Fall Term Internship? Team Oregon is recruiting volunteers and interns for Governor Kate Brown's re-election campaign. Volunteer and internship duties would include voter registration, canvassing, phone banking, and attending weekly meetings. You will also gain experience with multiple technical programs that are used in political campaigns across the nation, such as the Voter Activation Network (VAN) and the Oregon Legislative Information System (OLIS). These programs are used for field organizing, fundraising, and tracking bills. This would be a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a local political campaign. Volunteers and interns would be working on-campus and in local neighborhoods that are a short walking-distance from campus. Internships are unpaid, but students may receive internship credit, if desired. Volunteers and interns are primarily needed September through November, for campaign season. However, we encourage both our volunteers and interns to participate longer, since there is potential for professional advancement within our organization. If you are interested, please contact me through FB Messenger!
