About Us

Some members of LUG during an "install fest".

We at the Linux Users Group are mostly a group of nerds. However we are not your normal nerds. We are a highly active and self-organizing group dedicated to teaching and advocating free and open source software (FOSS) on campus.

Our approach is simple. Members join either because they are new users and would like help, or because they are active users and want to help promote FOSS. Because of the infectious nature of open source, the group nearly builds itself.

Since 2004 we have benefited the Oregon State student body by providing free support for Linux, increasing awareness about the open source revolution, and jointly creating events with other groups on campus. We share many members with the OSU Open Source Education Lab and are hosted by the OSU Open Source Lab.

We have open meetings every Tuesday at 6:00 pm in the KEC, room 1005 in Kelly Engineering Center. All students and community members are welcome to attend.

Our Constitution.
