Welcome to OHSU

OHSU is dedicated to providing students with a world renowned education and extracurricular opportunities that support personal growth outside of the classroom.  These opportunities include social, recreational and cultural activities that allow students to supplement their ability to become well-balanced research and health care professionals.  Students at OHSU will be able to enrich their academic experiences by participating in new activities that emphasize interacting with others as well as taking care of one's personal self.

The mission of the Office of Student Life is to help students enrich their educational experiences by providing a dynamic interdisciplinary environment that stimulates inquiry, initiative and cooperation among the OHSU community.  The collaboration and partnership on student-centered programming cultivates a sense of community and inter-professionalism that is unique to OHSU.
