Trip to Klamath Falls and the Oregon Tech Campus

June 14th was graduation day for Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls where I went to college some 30 years ago. I am now a board member of the Oregon Tech Alumni Association so I got to go down to help, especially with the Golden Owls. The Golden Owls are any graduate who graduated forty or more years ago, thus we honor them during graduation. So I went down early and participate in several activities such as the tour of the original campus circa 1946, attend the awards banquet and the President’s Breakfast the day of graduation. I also got to meet the 2013 Miss Oregon, Allison Cook from Klamath Falls and an Oregon Tech student. Also found out that Dr. Chris Maples rides a motorcycle, now how cool is that for the college President! The following dozen select pictures are from that trip.
