Oregon Tech is a great school that provides a lot of hands-on opportunities for students in the STEM programs. I was able to get involved in the school's 2015-2016 concrete canoe team and learn a variety of skills outside of the classroom. As for classes, the professors are very helpful and enthusiastic. I actually look forward to class everyday! The labs provide even more learning opportunity for students as we get to work together in small groups to learn.

I would choose this school again in a heartbeat! The staff at this school really cares about your education and is willing to help in any way. Also, the students are very diverse, accepting, and want to see each other succeed.

Oregon Tech has phenomenal teaching staff. All professors and assistant professors are willing to help students outside of class time and typical office hours. Professors are energetic, enthusiastic, and helpful. They make it fun to learn, especially in lab-based courses. Most courses, at least in STEM majors, are very hands on. This has been by far the best way to learn and actually acquire new skills.

Class sizes are also relatively small, with most classes ranging from about 16 students to 60 students. Smaller class sizes make it so that professors actually know students and students get to know classmates better.

The City of Wilsonville has NO public transportation to and from OIT Wilsonville while classes are going on. There is simply no way to get to and from campus.

Oregon Tech Wilsonville has no campus security, and even locks students out of campus during class times late at night.

On the Oregon Tech website, OIT advertises a "safe campus." Like the majority of goodies and services, "campus safety" is solely for the Klamath Falls campus, and not for the Portland (now Wilsonville) campus. OIT Portland (now Wilsonville) has no campus security, no campus safety, no number to call, no shuttle bus, no women's resource center. This has been an ongoing situation for over thirty years, as that's how long OIT has maintained a Portland area campus.

Oregon Tech Wilsonville has no public transportation, but claims it's a "Green" and sustainable school, while 630 students drive a total of 940,000 miles per term.

Oregon Tech Wilsonville recommends students "bum a ride" with other students, who are mostly strange males. OIT does so in writing.

This is publicly available on the OIT student message boards, and functions as official policy for getting to campus.

OIT Wilsonville is therefore a hostile environment for women, people with disabilities, and anyone who doesn't have a vehicle that never, ever breaks down.
