Flight School - Start Strong

Flight School - Start Strong is a week-long program right before the academic term. September 18 - 23, 2022
The program is collaborative and brings together academics, Housing & Residence Life, Tech Opportunities Program (TOP/TRIO), and Student Involvement & Belonging to welcome students to campus and give them a variety of tools to navigate the academic year. Participants will participate in multiple academic sessions throughout the week and enroll in an fall academic success course that will be no cost to the student. Along with the academics, students will engage in a variety of community-building activities. Our week long schedule of activities will be published as it becomes available.
We know it is difficult to make the plans to leave work and home before moving to Oregon Tech so we are incentivizing the week for the students who attend with Bookstore credit and stipends.

Living On Campus

Our Klamath Falls campus offers two housing facilities to allow students to stay on campus as they study, which comes with a host of perks. In addition to convenience, staying on campus has been shown to improve academic success. It allows you to fully immerse yourself in the campus culture, make lasting friendships with people of diverse backgrounds, and partake in countless activities—including annual traditions such as Tech Con, Spring Fling and the local favorite, the Halloween Haunted House.
