Tradition is an ideal that students and staff at Oregon State hold dear. It means the changes will be subtle and the progress will be slow.
When the 1989 graduates return for their tenth reunion, or 20th or 30th — chances are that campus will still look very much the same. Whatever changes to occur will still fit in with the traditional buildings and will be fringed with rhododendrons and azaleas.
However, the graduates before 1989 may be surprised to see a few large changes. One very big change on campus was the installation of the clocks in Benton Hall’s stately clock tower that had been vacant for over 100 years. Another change occurred when a new engineering building was built on the Mortheast end of campus. The building takes advantage of an old chimney that was once used as the central heating source for the university.
Alums returning to campus in the future are also likely to still find traditional events such as Mom’s weekend, with its carriage rides, still in vogue, because OSG respects tradition — the richness of the past preserved for the future.

Beer and pizza or tomato juice and tofu, the natural look or the fake-n-bake look, ahh ... the affections of student life.
Three-hour labs, all night study sessions, two credit classes that take as much work as a four credit class, oh ... the realism of student life.
But, was this really student life or just what was expected of student life?
At Oregon State University student life may have suggested one thing to one person and a totally opposite one to another.
There were roughly 250 clubs and organizations that
students participated in. They attracted 250 different types of people with 250 different types of interests.
So, what was student life like to you, the students?
Rod Veeman said, "It’s just like any other life, it's fun times, hard times and it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Jill Chester said, “There's always things to do if you go out and look for them."
As you can see, everyone had their own individual perception of student life, but no matter how you saw it, student life was just student life.
