Of the many exciting opportunities that arise from OSU’s Portland expansion comes the greater ability to connect with our Portland-based alumni. With that in mind, the College of Business is inspired to build the Business Graduate of the Last Decade network – Business GOLD – and take advantage of the great new location at Pioneer Square to get to the heart of Beaver Nation, PDX. So, register today: our first Business GOLD reception is Friday, October 26, 2018.
The event, timed to coincide with the fall opening of the OSU Portland hub at the Meier & Frank Building, will be the inaugural Business GOLD welcome reception. The upper floors of Meier & Frank house The Nines, a modern boutique hotel with stunning interiors and views of the city’s bustling business district. We can’t think of a better place to have our first Business GOLD celebration.
Portland is the destination of choice for a large percentage of our recent graduates where the hip, big-city lifestyle provides an exciting contrast to the idyllic, college-town atmosphere of Corvallis. Our event brings together these Portland newcomers and the more experienced early-career beavers in business.
Specifically, at this happy hour we hope to connect our new graduates with their early career, Business GOLD peer network.
Through Business GOLD we will host additional social events throughout the year; we’ll create access to educational workshops and other professional development opportunities. We’ll create mentoring relationships, including outreach to the undergrads with tips on breaking into that first job after graduation.
We hope to see you there. It’s a time for celebration and pride for Beaver Nation, and we hope to make an impact with Business GOLD.
