Computers: Computer labs are abundant and open almost 24/7 to students and faculty. Our IT staff are great. Each student gets an automatic $8 printing allowance each year. Printers can be hard to find outside computer labs and a bit difficult to use but they are usually good. Prices per page of printing is very reasonable. Network reliability is good. We have undergone many changes this year and have had the email network become unavailable once for 2 days and another network was unavailable for one or two days as well. Our IT staff did a great job remedying the problem as quickly and as best as they could. The network speed is great on some occasions and good on others. Wireless is a joke. It's available but only in a few small areas and when it is, it's slow, difficult, unreliable and more of a pain. Bring an ethernet cord with you to school because there is no wireless internet in the dorm rooms unless you buy your own router/modem and pay a monthly internet fee. I have my own laptop and printer and I highly recommend that you bring your own laptop and a basic printer for when you have a project due the next day or need to print something late at night or when weather is unfavorable. It's a hassle to print anything from my laptop on a campus printer and it's much quicker for me to use my printer in my dorm room, grab my paper and run to class or print notes to study. You can do without if needed, but it's a tech school and you will have online homework that is due once or multiple times every week. It's just easier to have your own computer or laptop. A tablet is manageable for most tasks but homework on them is a pain.

Drug Safety: Drugs are not tolerated on campus at all and students will turn friends in for use because it's for their own good and the good of the campus as a whole. The few students that do use don't live on campus for fear of being caught. Alcohol policies are respected on campus. The only alcohol consumption that takes place on campus is within the confines of a "21 and up" space. This is defined as a dorm room in which only students 21 years or older are housed. They may drink inside their dorm room whenever they wish as long as only 21 and up students are present. If an empty but open alcohol container is in the room at the same time as an underage/minor person, they can be punished simply due to the fact that they may have obtained alcohol. The person of legal age can also be charged with or convicted of attempt to provide alcohol to a minor without parental consent. Policy enforcement is 100%. There is no warning, sympathy or bias.

Peer pressure is a bit odd at Oregon Tech because students will pressure their friends into not drinking or going out and offer alternative ways to have fun. It is a very supportive campus that has a lot of health-conscious students due to the majority of students pursuing a medical degree as well as how competitive the programs are. I've never seen a campus of students behave that way about partying and alcohol but it is certainly comforting that either way if I drink or don't I will still be accepted but my friends would rather I make healthy choices and will help and support me in it.

Athletics: Athletics at Oregon Tech has undergone an incident and good recovery in the past decade. Our football team was in bad losing streak and when the team won their first (insignificant) game in a long while the team members acted without discretion and the whole campus suffered. Sports were banned for a long time but now we have added cross-country running, softball, soccer and basketball back to the campus sports selection. Our teams performances vary depending on the sport but for our athletes it is more about bringing the campus esteem and improving their performance as individuals and as a team on and off the court. Parents, locals and students recognize this and our fan support is great. The bleachers aren't always packed out but we have a lot of supporters. School spirit is mostly carried by the students, but a few parents participate. It's been a long time since I saw students get so excited about their team. The previous football incident did negatively effect the athletics scene for a while but we as students have learned from it and now make more of an effort to act with integrity on and off the court and campus so we can regain the respect we lost a long time ago.

Weather: In the Klamath Falls area, the campus and whole are are subject to very hot weather in summer and extreme cold in winter. The campus is wonderful about clearing snow from walk-ways every morning and we use sand as well. On occasion we will use salt to eliminate ice. We rarely have a student slip and fall. The campus also has and is continuing to instal thermal pipes under the sidewalks to warm them in winter and prevent snow build-up. They are very effective and a great feature of campus. During the summers it gets very hot and we have a great air-conditioning system in the Residence halls. The academic buildings have okay air-conditioning but it's not as efficient as the system in the Residence halls.

Health & Safety: Safety and security on campus is the best I've seen yet. I reviewed our past incident reports from past years concerning safety incidents. The school has consistently reduced the campus crime rates in all categories in the past 5-8 years through policy and procedure changes as well as increasing the number of safety personnel and student awareness. I feel very safe on campus due to the friendliness and awareness of students, well-lit pathways and knowing that students have been made aware of the bystander effect and how to stop or prevent it. All staff and safety personnel are very approachable and personable. If you bring up an issue or concern, they will check it out right then or at their earliest convenience and they mean it. We have emergency buttons conveniently located on campus and safety education is a top priority. I enjoy feeling safe on my campus even at night when I am alone.

At my last college I was afraid to walk a few hundred feet to my car at night without a security escort or carrying mace on me and I felt scared for my life at times. No incidents happened but security personnel were not there when you needed them, paths and bushes were poorly lit, and the crime rate steadily climbed through the years in most categories and I can understand why.

Majors: The process to get into the Accounting program is very easy. There are no applications or special tests. All you have to do is pass the required classes.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is Accounting I love the program! The teachers make the subject very interesting and fun to learn about. I want to continue after college to get my C.P.A. and several of the professors have earned their C.P.A and have real world experience.

Diversity: OIT attracts a large array of all different races and religious backgrounds. The school does not discriminate and nor do the students there.

Weather: It can be a muggy start at the beginning of Fall Term, but that quickly dissipates during the Winter comings. It snows occasionally in Klamath Falls, but once it does snow, it stays for quite some time due to the high altitude and low temperatures it has to offer. During Spring you could have an inch of snow in the morning on the ground and come out from your first class and it had all melted and the sun is shining bright.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It has a great town surrounding it that is similar to the decent sized town I grew up in. There is a lot of things to do if you're an outdoors type person like the lake and travelling short distances to see many parks and outdoor sites for fun. Inside the town there are bowling alleys, movie theaters and a plethora of local fast food places that are to die for. Shopping isn't a big deal with places like Fred Meyers, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Thunderbird, etc. etc.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of rentals in this town. Fairly agreeable prices and generally safe neighborhoods.

Off-Campus Dining: There are not very many options for dining off campus but they are all pretty good. The on campus options are very poor.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They think they are rigorous, but really they are just a B school. Entry requirements are non-existent. Hardly anybody gets denied. I had a friend who got in with a 2.25 GPA. Which I spent a lot of time tutoring. Quality is low.

Parking: I got three tickets the first week of school. They don't allow you to back into a spot ($20 fine), I parked on the line once because it was covered in ice ($50 fine) and my hanger permit was backwards ($20 fine). The parking permits are pretty cheap, but they get you throughout the year if you do a tiny ting wrong and you are paying as much as a big school. Also, watch out if you try to park off campus in the witner, the snow plows will bury your car, adn you might get ticketed.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Hardly hear about these on campus. It's not a big deal if you are in a frat or sorority, and it is not a big deal if you never set foot in one.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: In the union you can play foosball or ping pong, which is boring after 3 days of it. There are no traditions except basketball games. The buildings are extremely boring and have no interesting features. Seems like art is a foreign concept to the design of the campus. Campus Activities is very non-existent, which is hard in the winters when the snow starts to fall and doesn't allow you to get out of town.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: It snows a lot and they don't take care of the roads or parking lots. The parking lots turns into an ice rink, with cars sliding and people falling. The streets off campus are just ice for at least three months of the year. It is hard to leave Klameth falls in the winter because of the snow, and there is nothing to do in town, so it becomes very isolated. Classes are never canceled, so if you are from a warm climate and don't know how to drive on ice, be prepared to buy a bus ticket. Also, ice is everywhere on the sidewalks, two of my friends broke their legs last term when they fell down the many stairs on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: The bathrooms are dirty and they have grafetti in them. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom, but in the winter you have to because of the snow.
