What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
even if you think you want to stay close to home, make at least one trip outside your comfort area. You may just find a hiiden gem
James from Cedar Knolls, NJ
Corvallis is pretty small (about 55,000 people), so it's a good plan to get involved in different activities on campus. You'll meet people who are interested in the same things you are, as well as those that are totally different from you. There's something for everyone; lots of clubs, Greek life, restaurants nearby to meet up with people. Don't hesitate to venture out and try something new.
Michelle from Auburn, WA
Register for a PAC class (PE) like yoga, ballet, or tennis. It will allow you to relax during the craziness of your other classes. Use the library and all other academic resources. There are a lot on campus, and your professors will tell you about them. Don't be afraid of office hours, the professors won't bite and want you to succeed!
Jenna from Stockton, CA
If you're going to be living in a dorm and with a roommate, take the time to look through the profiles people have filled out and e-mail your roommate beforehand. Having a fun, agreeable person to come home to (and your dorm will become your home, trust me!) is MUCH more pleasant than one you don't get along with!
Caitlyn from Portland, OR
Living in the dorms your first year can be an interesting experience! It allows you to get in touch/network with many fellow students and make lots of friends. Setting up hall activities and/or trips was a great way to spend your free time or take a break from studying. They are also a great way to get involved and get to know the people around you.
Jasmine from Beaverton, OR
1. Always go to class, because there might be a chance that the professor will go over important things to know for the midterm or test.
2. Always read the book chapter before class, allowing you to understand and ask questions later on (the unclear stuff).
3. Take advantage of the professor's office hours and tutoring
4. Have fun! go to college events and explore...there are so many open opportunities, you just need to look for them.
Nicthe from Chandler, AZ
Take a pac class at some point and take a break from academics.
Also, take a class that sounds interesting and has nothing at all to do with your major, you may learn a lot from getting outside your comfort zone.
Alexandria from Corvallis, OR
This is the time when school is taken seriously.
