Three students kneel and sign their names in the wet cement in celebration of freshman orientation near the Natural Sciences Building.. One young woman wears the Oregon beanie hat and four male students stand around the sidewalk.

Phrase on back of photograph: "Freshman initiation is part of your introduction to life at Oregon College of Education. Whether you are signing the freshman walk, taking a placement test, or meeting new friends, your first days at OCE will be among your most memorable."
