Welcome Dads!

Dad’s Weekend

Is your Dad coming into town this weekend? Well starting Friday, a wide range of activities will be available for you and your old man to participate in. Your dad can even go to class with you all day on Friday and share your everyday experiences with you!

After class, get a round of golf in at Trysting Tree Golf Club. You can sign up at Dixon in the Recreation Service department. The fee for a student and one family member is $80. However, if golf isn’t your thing and you still want to have some fun with dad, there will be two comedy showings at Lasells Stewart Center featuring Myq Kaplan and Dan Cummins. Tickets can be purchased here https://red.vendini.com/ticket-software.html?t=tix&e=04eea8f94ef1740e8963892594b3f674 for the showing at 6:30 p.m. and also for the second showing at 9 p.m.

If Friday wasn’t a busy enough day for you, Saturday of Dads weekend at Oregon State has even more to offer. Challenge the Dads: Dads Weekend Challenge Course Day will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The sign up fee is $20 and you can do so at the Adventure Leadership Institute in Dixon. Once you’re done competing against Dad in the challenge course, swing by the MU lounge for some brunch between 9:30 am and 12 p.m. where plates will be $12. From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. you can stop by the MU in room 207 and get photos with your family before making your way to the game. The Beaver’s vs. UCLA football game will kick off at 1:30 p.m. in Reser Stadium. Make sure you have your student ticket as well as one for Dad!
