Director | 541-737-0724 | Shelly.Signs@oregonstate.edu
Shelly has served the needs of OSU through University Events, multiple committees and service organizations, and as Executive Director of OSU's 150th anniversary. She began her event career when working in a party rental store. Seeing a need for handling the myriad of details involved in a wedding, she wanted to help couples have an event that both met their dreams, but also stayed within budget. These same principles applied in higher education where she next worked for the President’s Office at Washington State University as event coordinator before coming to OSU in May of 2006. Shelly holds a degree in Set and Costume Design for the Stage from Emporia State University in Kansas and she has transferred the impact of the stage to the impact of prestigious events.
