Director of Student Services
Hello. I am Louie Bottaro, Director of Student Services for the College of Liberal Arts. I have advised in the College of Liberal Arts since 1999 and I truly love what I do. Academic advising of students is much more than helping students navigate a degree checklist. If you make an advising appointment with me you should prepare to discuss your short term and long term goals. I am proud of the advising staff that we have assembled in the College of Liberal Arts and know that we can help you achieve many of these goals.

Hi, I’m Tristen Shay, Associate Director of Student Services for the College of Liberal Arts. I love being an advisor here, but even more I love assisting students in finding their educational and co-curricular passions. Feel free to ask me questions about Baccalaureate or Liberal Arts Core requirements, campus resources, or general questions. I have bachelor degrees in Art History and Gender Studies from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and I hold my graduate degree in College Student Services Administration from OSU - Go Beavs! In my free time I enjoy reading, playing video games, cheering on my beloved Seahawks and (semi-successfully) attempting to teach my cat to do tricks.
Dahlia is a poet from the San Francisco Bay Area. She recieved her B.A. in Literature from University of California Santa Cruz and an M.F.A in Creative Writing from Oregon State University. She has taught composition and introductory poetry writing courses, and will probably try to convince you to take one. When she's not slow-dancing with her cat, you can find Dahlia exploring local forests, wondering if it's all real. Se habla español.
Beau Baca is originally from the West Coast, but most recently hails from Tennessee. With a background in literature (he received his PhD in English Literature from Vanderbilt) it's no surprise that Beau enjoys reading, watching British comedies and re-enacting famous scenes in literature with his giant tabby cat Bruno.
Hello, I’m Marilyn Stewart. I am committed to assisting students in having a true liberal arts experience at Oregon State University. My intent is to make a difference in students’ lives through considerate guidance and support. The core of my approach as an academic advisor is assisting students to make informed decisions in becoming even more academically successful as they move toward their goal of earning a College of Liberal Arts degree. Aside from enjoying my work of academic advising, I love spending time with my husband, two sons and nephew from Florida. I also enjoy traveling the nation and spending time with good friends.
