Hydrophiles is a water-focused student group at Oregon State University

Our purpose is to bring people from all areas of water resources together for social and professional exchange. Our activities include field trips, presentations by students, faculty, and off-campus professionals, and social events. Hydrophiles finds common ground for water resources students and faculty in all of the science, engineering, and management departments on campus.
