The 2023 Associated Students of Oregon State University Inauguration occurred in the Student Experience Center Plaza on June 1.

Carissa O’Donnell, the incoming ASOSU president, and Dakota Canzano, the incoming vice president spoke to the audience of students and loved ones, and were sworn in by Judicial Council Chair Maya Sonpatki. 

Incoming Student Fee Committee Chair Matteo Paola, ASOSU senators and and SFC liaisons were sworn in for the 2023-24 year as well.

June 1 also marked the departure of a bicameral system; in effect, the ASOSU House of Representatives was dissolved, and Speaker of the House Madelyn Neuschwander symbolically retired the Clerk’s Gavel.

Video as part of the story, "CLA students and faculty look to preserve peace with nuclear divestment," By College of Liberal Arts Writer Nino Paoli

Outside the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center stands a persimmon tree grown from the seeds of its predecessor that survived the United States’ bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

Just as OSU’s Hiroshima Peace Tree honors two Hiroshima survivors, memorializing a legacy of peace and rebirth, faculty and students from the College of Liberal Arts have achieved another benchmark in upholding a legacy of peace within the Corvallis community by advocating for the divestment in companies that profit from the production of nuclear armaments.

The Peace Tree specifically recognizes Dr. Hideko Tamura Snider and June Ikuko Terasaka Moore. Hideko facilitated the planting of the Peace Tree, before the Oregon Department of Forestry assumed the responsibility of introducing Hiroshima peace trees to communities around the state.

The “Seeds of Peace” event held at the APCC on May 18, concluded with individuals tying ribbons in bows to the Peace Tree, and ladling water onto it afterwards, a tradition of Hiroshima, Nagasaki commemorations.

Months prior, on Nov. 10, 2022, the City of Corvallis signed and passed a resolution to divest from companies that produce weapons of war. Professor Linda Richards, who teaches a class titled “Why War,” and students working with her, Peace Interns Claire Nelson and Mahal Miles, played an integral role in the formation of the divest resolution.

“(The divest resolution) is very simple, and says: the city will not invest in companies that are identified as being companies that profit from weapons manufacture,” Richards said.
