CORVALLIS, Ore. -- If you're a fan of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, then Oregon State University was the place to be on Wednesday.
Ellen DeGeneres visited the Corvallis campus via satellite Wednesday afternoon. The event took place at the Memorial Union quad at OSU, and will air on the show next week.
People are already at my live shot at @OregonStateUniv. Get over to the quad! You're gonna be on my show!— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 21, 2014
During the show, DeGeneres interacted with students from her set in Los Angeles, and her correspondent, Jeannie Klisiewicz, was at the quad, hanging out with the students.
Students wore a variety of costumes according to different themes, such as Dress like your dad.
Father's Day is around the corner, so if you're at @runningateUniv, dress in your worst dad outfit & get to the quad. You'll be on my show!— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 21, 2014
She also had students scurrying around campus looking for five envelopes that contained cash prizes ranging from $500 to $10,000.
"We had a lot of fun," said student Caleb Lewis. "Such a big person."
DeGeneres had been keeping details under wraps, but started to tweet out clues on Saturday hinting at something fun at OSU:
I hear Oregon is beautiful this time of year. I also hear something fun is gonna happen at @OregonStateUniv on Weds. Now you heard it, too.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 17, 2014
Then on Monday, she hinted again:
This Wednesday, @OregonStateUniv is the place to be, but you won't know what's going down unless you're following my tweets!— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 19, 2014
What we do know is that Ellen loves to give away prizes and play games with fans on her show.
