Register in the portal!

Members of the Leadership Academy are invited to visit with industry professionals at Microsoft, T-Mobile, McKinstry, and Boeing --as well as various Seattle area alumni at dinners on Thursday and Friday night. There is no cost and travel and hotel lodging is provided. This is a great chance to continue building professional networks, explore career options, and hone critical skills.

To participate in this trip, it is necessary to arrange your schedule to be away from campus starting Thursday morning January 16 (approx. 6 am) until Saturday evening January 18 (approx. 6 pm). Please do not RSVP for this trip unless you can confirm with certainty that you will be able to attend.
PLEASE NOTE: This trip is open to all engineering majors and years, but if you have already attended a past Seattle trek, please do not register again, so a student who has not had the opportunity to attend yet, may have the chance to go.

Please note: We will also be collecting a $20 deposit from each student who RSVPs for the trip to reserve their spot. Once you attend the trip, you will be refunded your deposit in full. If this deposit will present a significant financial difficulty for you, but you would still like the opportunity to attend this trip, please come talk to Kathryn Walters to discuss your options. Deposits for the Seattle trip are due by Friday, December 13 at 5 pm. If you have not paid your deposit by then, your seat will be rescinded and it will be offered to those on the waiting list.

We will visit T-Mobile on Thursday afternoon, followed by an OSU engineering alumni dinner event on Thursday evening. On Friday, we will tour Microsoft, and McKinstry, with another evening alumni event on Friday. On Saturday morning, we will tour Boeing, and return home to Corvallis.

Business casual attire is expected. Other clothing requirements include close-toed shoes and long pants to tour manufacturing facility spaces. Additional requirements will be communicated in greater detail to those attending the trip. There will also be a pre-trip meeting you will have to attend to prepare for the trip on January 7 and 9 (you only need to attend one of these meetings).
