Allen Dean Housing & Arrivals Coordinator
Good Music! Come have some fun to celebrate the end of summer term! Bring your own meat/vegetable to cook on the BBQ. INTO OSU will bring the rest!
After years working for OSU’s housing department, Allen comes to this position with lots of experience. The Student Voice sat down with Allen to get to now him. Here’s what he had to say:
What will you be doing in your new position? In my position as Campus Housing and Arrivals Coordinator, I work with the rest of the Student Services staff to ensure students’ housing needs are met while they are here at OSU. I enjoy the opportunities in my position to interact with students and assist them with their individual housing needs. What’s your favorite thing about working with students? Personally, I believe that feeling like you are part of a community plays a large part in academic success, and I’m happy that I get to play a role in that for students. When working with students, no two days will be the same. I enjoy being able to constantly grow and learn as I find the best ways to help improve students’ Oregon State experience. What do you do for fun in Corvallis? I currently play in a city-league ultimate Frisbee team at Crystal Lake Park. Corvallis has many opportunities to get involved in sports or explore some cool new areas. Sometimes I just pick a direction and either bike or run to some new destination. I’ve discovered some great parks and communities this way.

Artist: Passion Pit Album: Gossamer Released: July 23, 2012 Ever since their first EP, Chunk of Change, Passion Pit have been climbing in popularity. Their unique sound, characterized by a lot of energy and lots of electronic music, is easy to listen to and definitely breathes energy into any situation. You’ve probably heard their music before on TV shows and in movies. Their second album, Manners, really helped define indie music in 2009, when it was released. My favorites from this album so far are “Carried Away,” and “Constant Conversations.” (Click the orange links to listen online.)
Artist: The Gaslight Anthem Album: Handwritten Released: July 24, 2012 Gaslight Anthem has been around since 2007, but my first experience hearing them was their 2008 album, The ‘59 Sound. I had this album on repeat for months; I think I could probably still sing along to it all the way through. From that album, I loved “Film Noir.” I still listen to the old album pretty often. But with this new album out, I was excited for some new material. Handwritten actually has a very similar sound to The ‘59 Sound, which is good and bad. It sounds familiar, which is a good thing, but it almost feels like I could just listen to the old album and enjoy it more. Listen to “Handwritten,” and decide for yourself.
A large group of students gather during an Olympic soccer match in the ILLC Lounge. The match pitted South Korea against Japan. Congratulations to South Korea for winning the match and taking home a bronze medal.
