The Marine Team is centered around the idea of students and faculty getting hands on experience with the science they’re interested in. It is also centered around the idea of interdepartmental members. A common misconception is that the Marine Team is only for students studying biology, zoology, fisheries and wildlife, or any other animal-based life science. This is untrue, the Marine Team is open to all who want to join- the ocean benefits from movers, shakers, and thinkers who are found in every department.With these efforts we aim to create well-educated, skilled and engaged OSU graduates to carry on the strong tradition of marine research for which Oregon State University is renowned.
