Corvallis, Ore -- OSU head coach Mark Barnard announced Monday that former Oregon State volleyball star Arica Nassar will rejoin the program as a graduate student assistant.

“We are happy to welcome Arica back to Oregon State,” Barnard said. “As a former standout middle blocker with our 2014 Sweet 16 team, Arica brings with her a wealth of experience in regards to what it takes to be successful at this level.

Before returning to Corvallis, Nassar worked at UCLA as a volunteer assistant in 2017.

“I’m really excited to be back in Corvallis,” Nassar said. “My role will be different this time around but I am ready for this new adventure and I can’t wait to be back in Gill Coliseum with Beaver Nation behind us. Go Beavs!”

Nassar left behind a memorable legacy at Gill Coliseum, she was one of two players in OSU history with 1,000 career kills (1,033) and 500 blocks (540). She ranked third all-time in blocks, 13th in points (1,380), and 15th in kills, leading the Beavers in blocks per set all four seasons.

As a senior in 2014, she led her team to the best season in program history with 21 wins, the third-most in program history, including the Beavers’ first two NCAA postseason victories and a trip to the Regional Semifinals.

She graduatated with a degree in chemistry in 2015 and was a three-time Pac-12 Academic Honorable Mention selection.


Nassar also played professionally in Finland (WomanVolley, 2015-16) and Sweden (Engelholm, 2016-17), helping Engelholm to League and Gran Prix Championships.

“Her energy and enthusiasm for life and volleyball is something that will add a great deal to this program," Barnard said. "She is one of those people you just want to be around and I am pleased know that she will be around us for the coming two years."
