The Oregon State Department of Athletics is reminding the loyal fans of Beaver Nation to conduct themselves in a proper manner by always displaying good sportsmanship through our program BE(AV)'havior Counts. BEAVhavior Counts simply means good sportsmanship is mandatory by all Oregon State fans, visiting team fans, coaches, staff and student-athletes.
"We are proud to be known as having one of the most courteous and respectful fan bases in the country, and it is our hope that Beaver Nation and our guests continue to enjoy their experiences in our venues," Director of Athletics Bob De Carolis said. "Winning is important, but doing it with class and respect is just as important."
BE(AV)havior Counts is a sportsmanship awareness program designed to promote first-class fan conduct at Oregon State athletic events. Part of the commitment of attending and supporting the Beavers is to exhibit respectful behavior - BE(AV)'havior - at all times.
OSU Athletics encourages fans to report any violation of stadium guidelines to the nearest guest services representative.
"While the extremes of unwanted behavior are not commonplace at Oregon State athletic events it is important for all fans in attendance to display a respectable level of proper BE(AV)'havior," De Carolis said. "Please join us in our efforts to maintain Oregon State's national reputation as an intense and hard place to play, and always a first-class host."
