The Community Welcome outreach initiative culminates a series of events during OSU Welcome Week to help new students get more acquainted with OSU resources, programs and opportunities. In partnership with the City of Corvallis, Corvallis Neighborhood Association, and Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity, volunteers canvas neighborhoods, distribute outreach materials to welcome students to the neighborhood and provide contact information for helpful services and resources.
Volunteers have the option of knocking on doors and talking to neighbors, or hanging door hangers. Volunteers share information that encourages livability and good neighborly behavior. Any Oregon State University affiliate, city member or permanent resident can volunteer. Volunteers facilitate conversation with Corvallis community members to create a safe, welcoming and enjoyable year.
