Ellen DeGeneres was on the Oregon State campus on Wednesday, May 22 in spirit and also virtually. The comedian and talk show host connected to the crowd at the MU quad via satellite and live tweets to give away several thousand dollars in cash and gift cards. Via Twitter, Ellen encouraged students to “dress up in your worst dad outfit” to make their dads proud for Father’s Day. The segment will air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 28.
Someone at @OregonStateUniv‘s gonna win big! Dress up in your worst dad outfit & you could make your dad proud for Father’s Day. 3 more hrs!
