Simplify life.  Fire up the mind.  Feed the soul.  Let the heart teach the hands and the hands teach the head.  Every autumn since 1975, several dozen college students from across the country have taken a step “out of the current” for an unusual semester of vigorous intellectual exploration.  Students earn 17 credits, but focus on one topic of study at a time.  Daily reading, small group discussion, and one-on-one conversations with faculty members comprise the heart of the OE program.

JOIN US FOR A SEMESTER IN THE OREGON CASCADES

 

The Oregon Extension offers a fall semester of accredited college studies for the student who wants a more  HANDS-ON, HONEST, CONNECTED, AND DEEPLY ENGAGED LEARNING EXPERIENCE  in an intentional community setting.   Settle into our mountain hideaway in the southern Oregon Cascades for a four-month conversation with professors and peers who love to read books, ask big questions, confront big ideas, and get closer to the landExplore this unique alternative semester for honest seekers.

The Oregon Extension is for the student who does not want to say, on graduation day, “It happened so fast.  I know a lot of things, but I’m not clear on why they matter or what I can do about any of it.”
