University Campuses Prepare for Fall Term Opening
EUGENE - Upwards of 60,000 collegians will be journeying back to campus communities throughout the state in the coming week as Oregon's public universities get ready for the start of fall term classes on Monday, Sept. 27.

A series of special events and new student orientation programs precede the official start of classes.

Southern Oregon University in Ashland, for example, will host a 5K fun run/walk and a mountain bike ride down Mt. Ashland to welcome newcomers. In Corvallis, Oregon State University expects 3,000 for the President's "Welcome Barbecue," and will offer a special educational program focused on the dangers of substance abuse, titled "Beer, Booze & Books." And at the University of Oregon in Eugene, students will get their first opportunity to use the new $20 million Student Recreation and Fitness Center, which features a custom-designed rock climbing wall, and an in-house juice bar.

Following is a brief summary of pre-term events and activities at Oregon University System campuses.
