Corvallis is a small town that has grown up around OSU. The city caters mostly to college students, however, there are parts of town that are not completely student affiliated. Monroe is a good place to hang out and get food.


I see local coffee shops, restaurants, houses, and some small shops. There is an amazing clothing store called Urban Laundry. I love their clothes and what's even better about it is that it is right next to Dutch Bros. If you've never heard of Dutch Bros, don't worry I didn't either until I came here. But it's basically like a Starbucks. Honestly I like Starbucks better but it's still really good. There are a bunch of pizza places you can go to..oh and Jimmy Johns..best.place.ever. They deliever Thursday through Sunday until 4AM!! That is a college students dream! Oh ya and delivers is either free or costs 25 cents. That is like the greatest thing ever and they have amazing sandwiches also.
