5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed my time at Oregon State. It is a fantastic school that really cares about its students providing great opportunities for growth both personally and in your field of choice. OSU is an amazing school with amazing people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Oregon State is such a fine establishment, not only academically, but overall. From the health initiatives to Dam Jam and the late night pizza, it is a healthy balance of stupid teenage tendencies and the birthing of fine young adults.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The amount of involvement from alumni, companies that will hire in our fields and the school shows through the numerous job fairs hosted, our career center with mock interviews and the referrals from respectable business men and women. In addition, the internship opportunities spread throughout town provide us with better chances of filling in our intended careers.

Health & Safety: Being a college town, alcohol factors into a lot of situations, but that gives no excuse to the actions of those who act out irresponsibility, especially sexual assault. Oregon State maintains a safe environment for those who are in a situation and actively pursue ways of lowering the statistics. The number one thing they drill into us is being aware, of the people around you, your surroundings, behaviors, anything that could potentially lead you on to a predator. Regardless of the patrols and blue light phones, there are still areas that anything can happen and it is in these moments that they strike.

Campus Housing: What can I say, a dorm is a dorm, but having one to yourself sure makes the scale tip in your favor. Depending on what dorm you were assigned can cause the answers to the questions above vary. My dorm experience, granted I had a single and lived in the best building, was bittersweet. Starbucks being in the lobby saved lives, location was prime, the staff was amazing and sadly, greatly taken advantage of, the sauna was to die for, but the people themselves weren't of great quality. How they treated our authority figures and even the custodians spoke measure of how they see people. Nor, did I enjoy the loads of food in the shower drains over the weekends. But it was all a part of the experience and if I could choose anywhere to live, location wise, it'd be my dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Being a GDI (G-damn independent) as they say, I cannot adequately comment on all aspects of Greek life, but from what I've gathered, they have their ups and their downs just like any other organization. But anyone can see the influence they hold upon our Beaver community and that itself speaks volume on their involvement, greek or non greek.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: You can't win 'em all and Oregon State is the prime example of that. Whilst dominating in the baseball and basketball division, our football team is another story. Something like a half finished Cinderella story, our boys have the potential and talent to get us there, but lack the glue that'll hold it all together. Without something to cement their tactics in place, we continue to fall through the cracks, no pun intended. Regardless, our school spirit is unlike any other and it doesn't just end at varsity sports, the intramural sports hold their own as well. From rugby to lacrosse, people fill Intramural lane early Saturdays just to watch their fellow peers experience college.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When traveling 5,000+ miles across the Pacific Ocean, choosing the right school for you is more than drawing a name from a hat, especially when you have nineteen names to pull from. It's about finding where you can make a niche for yourself without even fully understanding yourself or even knowing who you'll be at the end of it. Embarking my journey at Oregon State had to be the greatest decision of my post high school life. Through these past two years, I have found a place to call my home away from home, stayed over the summer for summer classes, twice, and showed out on the jumbatron, how school spirit should be properly displayed. I couldn't picture myself being in school or starting my adult life anywhere else and if I had to, I couldn't imagine it being nearly as mind-blowing as the first half of my college experience was. So why is OSU the best? Come and see, you'll learn to enjoy watching the beavers waddle by and leaving your umbrellas at home, because we're all Oregonians now.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Within this degree we have to take a variety of classes. One of the classes helps you specialize on what you want to do. Another helps you with your resume and interviews for jobs and internships.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am in the Ecampus, taking online classes. This is a great program for me because I live in Florida at the moment. I am also in the military, so if I have to move, I don't have to start the college process all over again. It has been a hassle trying to get all of my credits in line, but after finally getting everything done for it I am almost done with my degree! I enjoy this online degree because I can take all but one of my classes online! It was very difficult to find an online degree in the field that I wanted to go into.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms because i met some of my best friends here. I am friends with literally everyone on my floor and we all hangout and get lunch together occasionally. My hall has one of the best RAs as well. They are all so kind and laid-back and are properly trained to assist you in whatever you need. Not only are the RAs and staff very nice but the people who also live here are nice as well. Everyone is very humble and will ask how your day is going even if they don’t know you. I am so glad i picked this dorm.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We have many sports at Oregon State and are part of the Pac 12 division in college sports. Our football team isn’t the best but our other sports such as basketball and baseball are very competitive and have improved over the years. But no matter what, students still go to every football, basketball, baseball and even volleyball to support our school and cheer with all our hearts.

Overall Experience: Oregon state is unique because everyone here is super friendly and genuinely cares about you. People will go out of their way to help you even if you don’t ask for it. Coming here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because I have made so many friends that I know are going to be in my life forever and I wouldn’t be happier anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Corvallis is one of the most safe college towns there is. For the most part everyone minds their own business and their are no issues. Sometimes there will be an incident here or there but nothing extremely serious. Overall it is a great atmosphere

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus this year but I know that the location is great. However, the people are normal millenniums and many people are typically rude. It is okay for the money but I will not be living there again

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Personally Greek life is an excuse to pay a lot of money and party. That is not my cup of tea so I stay away from it, the Greek men I see are very disrespectful, think they are the bees knees and the world revolves around them

3 College Junior

Athletics: The varsity sports teams are decent. Many club teams actually compete at a very high level nationally and get no recognition. For example, the racquetball team had won 10 national titles and OSU does nothing to thoroughly support the team finacially which would make a huge difference in recruitment and travel. The teams have a pretty good fan base but nothing like a big ten school or acc team or even the ducks for that matter. Still fun though

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most everything is made simple. However, just like any larger school, thy make it complicated on the student when trying to register, switch majors, pay for classes, and more. It would be nice if the process was made simple and communication was made easy.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love love love the greek life here. It has made me feel at home here and introduced me to a ton of new people.

Overall Experience: I am content with being at OSU. It is a good school with a good math and science program, but it is not over the top amazing.
