What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think OSU is a great choice to attend as the advisors/counselours will work with you to have the best possible exeprience and further your college career. The college town is very tame and makes sure to keep all of their facilties safe in various ways; such as emergency buttons on almost every street, a on call service to pick up and drop off students on and off campus, and more. I also appreciated how amazing professors and advisors were when I and other students came to them for help. For things such as falling behind in classes, wanting to change majors, not knowing what to do next. I constantly meet with my advisor and go over a 2 year plan for the rest of my college career in order to help me graduate at a time that works for me. OSU was a good choice for me to join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oregon State is an awesome school that provides the full college experience. The campus was beautiful and the people were friendly. There are lots of clubs and activities to partake in. Beaver spirit is evident but it is definitely stronger in other PAC 12 schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Oregon State University is a great mix of classroom and outdoor environments. It’s set about 1 hour away from the Oregon coast, and is very close to the Cascade Mountains. As for the on campus life, I think the people are really warm and inviting without being too over bearing. The professors keep you engaged even while teaching tough course work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Oregon State! My friends of course made it amazing. Just the atmosphere around campus is positive! Class sizes are kind of big, but professors have accessible office hours as well as additional ways for students to contact them. There are some professors who do not get back to us on time, but I'm sure they have a good reason. Overall OSU is wonderful. I recommend it to everyone, especially Duck fans.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Are you looking for a university that values community and truly helps its students succeed? Are you looking to spend the next chapter of your education in a beautiful suburban setting surrounded by gorgeous green hills? Then Oregon State University just might be the school for you. I am a freshman here, and I certainly think that you would do wonderfully. Oregon State University, or OSU, is a vibrant community where folks from many walks of life come to learn. Practically any time of day, you can walk by the Student Experience Center Plaza or the Memorial Union and you will see plenty of student-led groups engaging with the community about the issues that matter to them. If you're looking for fun, want to try out a new hobby or are looking to make new friends, swing by the craft center, the intramural sports fields, the wood shop, the Adventure Leadership Institute, or any of the abundant recreational activities that are constantly going on. If you are a dedicated athlete, or even just interested in checking out a new sport, we have both varsity and club teams just waiting for you to get involved. Even in club teams, there are great opportunities to travel around the region and connect with students at other universities with whom you share similar interests. I personally am part of OSU's climbing club, and it has given me such a sense of community, and the opportunity travel to new cities and compete, with no pressure, in a sport that I am still relatively new to. If you are super excited about greek life, there is plenty of involvement in sororities and fraternities on campus. If you are interested in research, OSU has valuable opportunities for undergrads to work in labs in many different fields, alongside renowned faculty and distinguished peers. One perk about research at OSU is that it is both world class and accessible for undergrads. At some more competitive state schools, such as the University of Washington where many of my friends attend, I've heard that it can be harder to achieve these opportunities as an undergrad. Science and engineering programs are generally what OSU is famous for, and they certainly will not disappoint. In my experience in the colleges of science and public health, I am amazed at how passionate and deeply knowledgeable faculty are about class material. OSU's other colleges also have excellent reputation and cutting edge research, including but not limited to the College of Public Health and Human Sciences, the College of Business, and the College of Forestry. I will say that a big university unfortunately means some really big class sizes, especially in lower-division courses like General Chemistry or Principles of Biology. If you are in the Honors College, you have the privilege of accessing smaller class sizes earlier on, however without junior standing it can still be difficult to get into them, since registration priority is given to folks with higher class standing. Another challenge as a student is that it can be difficult to obtain a position shadowing professionals (e.g. doctors, nurses) in the area because there is such a high volume of interest from other students. However, I do think this is pretty typical of any city that has a large university with dedicated students. All of that being said, I personally believe that any college experience can be amazing if you make something wonderful out of what you are given, and have other people there to support you. Despite these large classes, there are a truly impressive variety of on-campus resources for any student who seeks them out. Professors, graduate teaching assistants, peers, and other resources are highly available for all of the courses that I have taken thus far, and that I anticipate taking in the future. This community truly wants you to succeed, and will help you achieve your goals if only you reach out a hand. Whatever school you choose to attend, I hope that it is a wonderful experience for you. If I do manage to convince you that OSU is the place for you, then welcome to beaver nation!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oregon State University is a great place to be and there is plenty of opportunity for those who seek it! Research is at the core of OSU’s values and students are being taught first hand material from those who have done it before its published in a textbook. There is a variety of outside activities to partake in for those enjoy recreational activities and campus is beautiful in the spring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academically, the school is great. Professors are typically willing to do whatever they can to help you succeed (but of course some are not). Campus life is fun but the school is overwhelmingly white, and can be pretty exclusive to those who fit the norm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I partake in Oregon State University's E-campus, so everything I do is online. This helps because I actually live across the country from Oregon. While there have been various instructors here and there who don't seem to respond to their students at all, the vast majority of them sincerely do want to see their students succeed and will do everything in their power to help you. I would recommend this university to anyone thinking of their higher education options.
