Homecoming takes place at Oregon State University this week, and the OSU Alumni Association is seeking decorated floats, marching bands, student and community groups, dance teams, groups and novelty acts as well as enthusiastic spectators for the Oct. 29 night parade.

The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. at Southwest 30th Street and Jefferson Way, with Grand Marshal Mike Parker, radio voice of the OSU Beavers. Participants will traverse the campus to 14th Street and Washington Avenue, where a pep rally and bonfire will begin. Spectators are encouraged to bring canned food to donate toward the Spirit Week food drive.

Community spectators are encouraged to park free at the OSU parking structure at the corner of 26th Street and Washington Way, and to view the parade on those streets as well.

The theme of Homecoming 2010 is “Old School Benny, New School Pride,” and events run through Saturday, Oct. 30. Featured are Spirit Week, the bonfire, a tug-o-war contest, a traditional chant contest, and, of course, Saturday’s football game between the Beavers and the California Golden Bears.

Details, entry forms and a full Homecoming schedule are available at, by mail or fax from the alumni association, 541-737-2351, or for pickup at the CH2M-Hill Alumni Center, located across from Reser Stadium on 26th Street. A video on traditions is available at

The Oregon Department of Transportation is launching a test pay-as-you-drive road tax that would charge drivers 1.5 cents per mile. Do you support or oppose this alternative to the existing state and local fuel taxes to fund road maintenance?
