What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
OSU & Corvallis has so much to offer (year-round) it's sometimes hard to know where to start. It has a beautiful, relaxed campus with nearly 25,000 students & Corvallis' central location provides easy access to plenty of activities in less than 3 hours (beach, skiing, hiking, bicycling, camping, parks, lakes, etc.). And during the summer term everyone pays in-state tuition, plus the majority of courses are accelerated so you can complete them within 1-4 weeks, and still have time to enjoy your summer!

Oregon State University has everything that I am looking for in a college. The community is wonderful and it is such a beautiful place to be. If ever there is a question there is somewhere to find an answer.
