Established in 2019, Experiential Learning & Activities (ELA) is made up of four units: Clubs & Organizations, Orange Media Network, the Global Community Kitchen, and OSU Program Council. ELA serves as the heart of campus engagement, where students can find purpose and belonging through meaningful connections and active learning experiences. Though clubs and organizations, programming, student media and other activities, students can discover their passions and build community. ELA is a department within Student Experiences & Engagement (SEE).

Experiential Learning & Activities Units

Clubs & Organizations is a resource for Oregon State University student groups. Learn about what student groups you can join, learn how to create your own group, or get support for your student group with us!

The Global Community Kitchen enhances campus programming by partnering with students to utilize food for cultural sharing, learning and community building. The program provides advising, resources and support in the planning, development and serving of food as the focus or a component of programming.  Annually thousands of meals are served, hundreds of students and community members volunteer and hundreds of individuals gain new insight on food use and production. 

Orange Media Network is the student media program at Oregon State University, with six mediums (a newspaper, three magazines, a radio station and a TV station) and six cross-platform teams (Sports, Photography, Engineering, Sales, Marketing and Creative). We strive to lead the college media field by elevating diverse student voices through innovative and accessible hands-on media and leadership experiences that challenge views, build grit and engage the community. OMN also works with OSU departments, local businesses and national clients to reach our audience through advertising.

Starting in 1948, the Program Council was created to produce an array of diverse high-quality events to engage students and enhance student life. OSUPC is committed to serving the OSU community by upholding traditions and creating inclusive, engaging and entertaining programming. We wish to see a campus filled with new connections and lasting memories and strive everyday to make it happen.


ELA strives to create inclusive, accessible activities that all OSU students can enjoy. If you have concerns or suggestions on how we can make programming more accessible, please contact Markie Belcher, Assistant to the Director, at or 541.737.6375.
