Oregon State has one of the best teaching instructors and academic help centers. Oregon has a great engineering and pharmacy department, with many of opportunities for student involvement. There are many sports and physical activities available to students for free or a low fee. We have the best amiable student and staff. Oregon States has a many school events that are extremely fun! We have a lovely looking campus and wonderful six -floor library; which is an extraordinarily good place to study and get free academic help!
I look out at my dorm window and see a beautiful college campus sprawled out in front of me. During the fall I may brag about how the Beavers have one of the top defenses in the Pac-10, and during the spring I may proclaim to my friends down south that my walks to class are framed by a stunning display of colors that would seem to belong not on a college campus, but rather on the canvas of a romantic era painter.
What I brag about most to my friends about my school is that I can stay focused with my grades but I can always have a good time. College is about getting an education but is also about self dicovery. Oregon State University is generalized as a party school, which it most certainly is, but it is also a great place for a brilliant education and that is something I take pride in.
I tell them that the class sizes are small often allowing for class wide discussions of ideas, concepts, or upcoming research in the field. The slightly rural campus is also a benefit for people who are outdoor enthusiasts or enjoy being around nature but not far enough away from everything to be inconvenient.
Even though we live in a college town it doesn't feel like it. The atmosphere is down to earth and there is something for everyone to do whether you like art or entertainment. There are numerous things accessible if you live on or near campus including a great downtown area with a weekly farmers market.
Corvallis is in a beautiful area, and so far the weather has been fantastic, though I known this area is prone to rain. If I brag to my friends, it would be how our team is doing in football or baseball. Other than that, I don't have much time to brag about anything to anyone.
I tell my friends how spirited the people are here and how much orange and black you see when there are football games. Tailgaters are everywhere drinking and representing the ORANGE AND BLACK. They wear orange and black everything!! School pride and spirit is huge here.
My major is in Radiation Health Physics. Oregon State University has a test reactor on site; This means if we want to investigate neutron activation of a hunk of cheese, we actually have the facilities here to accomplish that task, and do so safely.
I am one of ten girls within the junior civil engineering class of approximately 120 students. Oregon State has an absolutely beautiful campus. Corvallis is so environmentally friendly; people ride their bikes or walk everywhere!
The best part about my school is the flexibility of the classes and fast-track in which I can complete my program. It allows me to focus on the ultimate goal, which is career success.
