Many thanks, information, and updates this week.
OSU’s Division of Extended Campus will be honoring Stefanie Buck at their annual faculty forum luncheon with an Extended Campus Appreciation Award for her work supporting faculty who teach Ecampus courses, her efforts leading our participation with the affordable learning initiative with Open Oregon State, and as an Ecampus Research Unit Fellow. Of course, they noted that these are but a few of Stefanie's many successful collaborations with Extended Campus.

GUESS THAT PET
Can you guess the cat’s person?
This is Zinfandel and Riesling (extra points if you can guess which one is which). This brother and sister crew are currently living the high life in Pennsylvania. Zia is primarily the bolder, more adventurous one, while Riese is a bit more timid – but just as sweet as can be.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s feline overlord lives with Rachel Kenny.
