I can't say enough good things about the program I'm apart of. The diversity of teachers and support members was phenomenal. The year my paramedic coursework began, I was given the opportunity to work with a mentor who had gone through the same program years prior. Right away, I was surrounded with support, with peers, and years of experience to learn from. I was provided with an environment to thrive.

reed - 04/29/2021

The school has some issues with the Administration and the faculty seeing eye to eye. Currently, our instructors are on strike (04/2021) and the whole situation is a mess. 92% of the faculty voted to have our schools president removed due to a lack of confidence. His job was saved by a board of trustees, and even after the strike gets resolved there will be tension as long as our current president Dr. Nagi Naganathan is around. I am not saying that Oregon Tech is a bad school, but read up on how the administration treats its faculty, and follows through (or doesn't) with promises they make to their students, before you decide to come here (or send your son or daughter here). Is the behavior and beliefs of the current administration something that you agree with? Do you think it is acceptable for a schools president to make over $500,000 per year (benefits included), yet deny his faculty cost of living raises? A simple Google search of "OIT strike" should give you plenty of reading material to help you make up your own mind.

Great School for those interested in academics, outdoors, and small class sizes

Kyle

Oregon Tech is an alright school. The class sizes are usually pretty small, especially the ones in your program, and the professors are pretty cool for the most part. Really the only thing that isn't great about Oregon Tech is the on-campus housing and dining, which is true for pretty much every other public college in the country, and it's easier to dodge here because of the low cost of living in Klamath Falls.
