4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very interested in working with the students and offer as many class sessions for one on one learning. For extra help, students are required to take a study session to engage in the topic more thoroughly and discuss any issues regarding the topic or classwork.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many reputable resources for students to better their careers including, career fairs, on the job learning opportunities, internships in and around their field of interest. On campus job sites and research facilities provide students with a glimpse of their intended career field or job skill to better their future.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The athletic center and on campus tutoring centers are phenomenal, the athletic center is powered by exercise equipment usage (i.e. elliptical, treadmills, etc.). There are a lot of student resources on campus for academic support. There are always ongoing student activities and events to participate in.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My financial aid experience was okay. Just make sure to submit your application in a timely manner so that you will be eligible to upcoming scholarships.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security seems to be very diligent in their work or line of duty.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Some buildings are a little out of date, but the campus is beautiful anyways. Lots of green, aesthetically pleasing buildings, some pretty cool festivities and philanthropy things. Almost always something going on in the MU quad.

Campus Strictness: Parking is very strict. They have given tickets to people who have the parking pass and are parked where they are supposed to. And the tickets are expensive!

Nightlife: There's almost always a party to go to. Choose which frat you go to carefully though. Some are a little more rude than others. It's great to meet people that you might run into later in some classes. It can really help!

Campus Dining: Great options for vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, etc. But the hours aren't that late. It's frustrating when you have class until 7:50pm and the dining hall closes at 8:00pm.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everywhere has annoying, rude and people like that. OSU has a bit of everything there. Generally people seem nicer and a little more study focused than some other schools. Social life is great as long as you don't stay locked up in your dorm room.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The Physics and Math department are not all that great at OSU. The professors don't have very good ratings and some of them you can't even count on to teach. It is also difficult to communicate with a lot of them. There is one academic advisor that you DO NOT want to go to. But the other one is AWESOME. (Not going to say names here).

I've heard that pro-school for MechE is a lot better than pre-engineering.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Again, the Physics and Math department are not good. But there is a huge variety of other classes, awesome help/tutoring programs through the school, lots of study areas, and an academic success center.

Athletics: Dixon Rec Center is amazing. They have great hours, membership is included with your student fees, access to pool, sauna, hot tub, weights, indoor track, different types of courts, treadmills and other machines, even a punching bag.

The atmosphere at the football games is phenomenal. I don't really like football that much, but I love going to the games and yelling with the crowd of students.

Off-Campus Housing: Definitely cheaper than the dorms. Not very many of the landlords are nice. And the nice ones have flaws, too, but nobody's perfect. If you aren't right on top of application dates for apartments, you are going to have a hard time getting one close to campus at a good price.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: People are nice, stores are close by to campus. But there isn't much to do in Corvallis. And the bus system really needs some work. (Get tips from TriMet!)

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They don't have many opportunities other than FAFSA that I am aware of. The financial aid office is NOT very helpful. It's very difficult to get in contact with them. Last year when we were applying for financial aid, it took several emails to even get a reply. Then they told us to call them at a specific time, only to have a voice mail say they were not in the office. This happened more than once.

Campus Housing: West Hall is one of the better places to live, but as it is the honors dorm, it is difficult to get a room there. You pay for the size of room as well as how new the building is.
