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Facilities: Some buildings are a little out of date, but the campus is beautiful anyways.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.

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.

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!)

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No personal opinion as I am not involved. I have plenty of friends who love greek life and plenty who do not.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a few of the academic achievement scholarships, but even though I qualified for the highest one, I did not receive it as it had already been given out.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: On campus food gets boring very quickly, so the food options on Monroe are nice every once in a while.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to be close to campus, you either have to settle for high prices (more expensive than the dorms), or a smaller/older living space. My friends and I opted for closer and smaller because being close to campus was most important to us.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors all care about what they are teaching and they care if you are actually learning.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am in the engineering program and it is great! Everyone pushes you to do your best.

Facilities: Some are old and falling apart but there is a great deal of new construction all around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a great college feel to the town!

Overall Experience: Great! Not much to say. The multiple short answers were annoying but doable.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center gets backed up sometimes so you have to go in planning to be there for a little while. As for assaults on campus, I didn't hear about them.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a great amount of diversity when it comes to political views. I personally do not see many of the super conservative people, but they are out there on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The houses are usually fairly old but well maintained. The weather tends to be fairly mild as far as temperature goes and i never had an issue keeping my house cool or warm enough to be comfortable.
