Today in the News Media

Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media. Content appearing includes timely news and feature stories from broadcast, print and online sources. Occasionally, opinion pieces and first-person columns appearing in mainstream media outlets that are written by faculty members and pertain to their academic or professional expertise may be included based on their unique, informative value, timeliness and space constraints. It is not the policy of OSU Today to include Letters to the Editor. Occasionally, articles highlighted in OSU Today may either be subscription-only or behind a paywall if a maximum number of articles has been reached that month.

Sunflower of the sea: LeAnn Joy Adam, director, National and Global Scholarships Advising, says, “I took this photo of a sunflower sea star on a recent scuba dive in Hood Canal. Sunflowers, one of the world’s largest sea stars, have declined rapidly because of sea star wasting disease. They’ve lost more than 90% of their Pacific Ocean population since 2013. Additional threats include warming oceans and ocean acidification. Whenever I see one during a dive, I consider it a sign of hope because sunflower sea stars play a critical role in our marine ecosystem. They are natural predators of sea urchins which are notorious for destroying kelp forests.”

Through this session you will be asked to reflect on your own awareness and knowledge of transfer students, learn who our OSU transfer students are and collaborate to improve the ways in which our transfer students feel that OSU cares deeply about their success. Part of the Fall 2021 FYI Friday series; Friday, Oct. 15, 9:30-11 a.m. via Zoom. Registration required.
