What is your overall opinion of this school?

The city loves the college and supports all the activities. Oregon State has a very loyal fan base for sports as well as academics. Sponsors of the college give well received gifts and nothing beats the tail gaiters when it comes to sports. The diversity of extra curricular activity is extremely diverse.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OSU has a beautiful open campus and when it's not raining is full of trees, grass, and open space to enjoy the outdoors. As an off campus student I relied heavily on public transportation which was easily accessible in Corvallis and to OSU. Plus as a student, it was free fare! Football games were always a great time regardless of our rankings. The library has a coffee shop and plenty of spaces to find the perfect study place for yourself or group. As I got closer to graduation, classes grew smaller and I bonded with my peers. I was a lucky one who graduated the year Michelle Obama gave her speech for the graduating class!

Oregon state University is a great home away from home not to big and not to small. I wouldn't be any where else OSU has got a real hometown feel with plenty of opportunity's,the campus is located just blocks from downtown where there are many coffee shops, cafes and parks.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oregon State University is a money making machine, with 70% of all income generated goes to paying, not teachers, but bureaucratic admin jobs with wages near 150k a year. My Clatsop Community college professor was fired for his inability to teach, where did he get his next job at? Oregon State University. OSU has a full time desk job for the ID center, full time job as a Dean's assistant with benefits. This school will burn your money. You're better off buying their textbooks and reading them on your own time. Each class will cost an average of $1200, when it only should cost an average of $300. We need education reform now. Giving OSU your money will only contribute to the problem.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has a beautiful campus full of intellectual, interesting, and friendly people. The dorms are nice and quiet, and the food is delicious (surprisingly), with a lot of options to choose from. If you don't like the rain, I wouldn't attend, just because a lot of the weather is cloudy and rainy, especially in the winter. Overall, great place to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oregon State University was, quite literally, a breath of fresh air the moment I stepped out of the car, that first time I visited campus in 2015. I knew it was home within minutes; not only are the people friendly and the buildings beautiful, but the wide variety in class choices and the multiple opportunities for internships and the like really make it unique. I was made to feel like a part of the student community without feeling pressured, and the classes I have taken so far are all taught by intelligent people with a passion for their subject. I greatly appreciate the quality of the residence hall that I occupy, and the food is definitely a thousand steps up from high school cafeteria food. Oregon State University is home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OSU is a good college. If you're an agriculture, engineering, accounting, or computer software engineer major, then there are few state colleges that hold up academically. As far as the rest? The programs are really not very prestigious, and most of the classes will feel like they exist to take your money. The professors are almost exclusively leftists (take that however you want), and the administration is far left (created a bias and diversity task force). Corvallis is nice, and the drinking scene is awesome.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The SJW administration, the leftist professors, and the socialist students. All very pushy. All very weak spirited.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend OSU is someone who likes math, agriculture, and/or software engineering. In addition, being a leftist would really benefit you here. Finally, if you come here, join the Greek life! I didn't, and I really regret it still.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing at OSU is the administration's tendency to push a far left agenda. They don't try to hide it anymore, and the president, Ed Rey (Ray?) sends out many emails reenforcing their commitment to social justice. They created a bias and diversity task force too. In fact, after the election, they hosted a "cry-in," allowed professors to rant about results in class, and declared themselves a sanctuary university. Don't get me wrong, I'm no racist or alt-right psychopath, but I've never seen a place that pushes their agenda on people like this (and I'm from Portland).

Describe a day on campus you'll never forget.

I was in a cultural diversity class my freshman year, and BLM had spread a pamphlet about a "die-in" they were conducting on campus that day. My professor told us that, for a grade, we would either have to participate in this or record it (pictures, video, etc.). The march itself said the white people could not talk to media, shouldn't be on the outside of the march, and shouldn't hold signs. When the class marched out to one of the cultural centers, I simply went back to my dorm room. OSU is great, but they have a tendency to vigorously push a far left agenda.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love OSU! It is a fabulous school with the most flowering plants on any North American campus. It's located 45 minutes from the ocean. The faculty are progressive and students inclusive. I wouldn't have changed my undergraduate choice for anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you like to party, cheer on the sports team, party some more, and like the anonymity of large classes than Oregon State is a great place. Unfortunately, I am a book worm who loves learning and would rather spend my time volunteering or participating in an activist group. There are opportunities for that on and off-campus but they're not nearly as well-known or as well-advertised as the Greek parties or the major sports games. Professors are very hit and miss. Sometimes you'll get a great professor who is actually teaching (and happy about it) as well as researching. Sometimes you'll get a bitter professor who hates you for taking him away from his research. Frequently you will get a grad student teacher, some great and some horrible. Occasionally you'll get a grad student teacher who just plays video of the professor who used to teach the class back in the 80's and the information is completely irrelevant, or very dated at best.
