Hydrophiles sponsors and organizes a variety of events throughout the year. These events have generally fallen into four categories: 1) professional development, 2) academic, 3) service learning, and 4) social events. Some events are repeated annually, such as our fall and spring barbecues at Avery Park, whereas others are proposed and orchestrated during the year based on the expressed interests and desires of our members. If you have ideas for future activities please contact the officers to share your ideas! Below are examples of some past Hydrophiles events, and you can check out the events archive for even more information.
Updates coming soon!
Mentoring First Year Water Resources Students: Starting in the 2010-2011 academic year, Hydrophiles members have met regularly with first year students in the Water Resources Graduate Program to discuss courses, research, being a grad student, living in Corvallis, and many other topics to help these students adjust to life as an OSU grad student and make the most out of their time here. In the fall of 2015 the Hydrophiles welcomed 15 new students to WRGP.
Annual Fall and Spring Barbecues: All members of the OSU water community are invited to barbecues at Avery Park in Corvallis, held at the beginning of each fall academic term and the end of each spring term. These cookouts are our most highly attended events, and a great opportunity to socialize, network, and enjoy food and drink together. The Fall 2015 barbecue will be held on October 4th at Avery Park from 1-5 PM. Activities will include new vs old student tug of war, bags, and much more. Keep on eye out for emails with more detailed information soon!
