5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Im really happy I chose to attend OSU. I couldn't imagine going to college anywhere else. I love Corvallis because it is strictly a college town and although there isn't a ton to do in town, it is just a short drive from Portland and Eugene. A big reason I chose Oregon State in the first place is because its far enough from home without being too far and the campus is so so pretty!

Overall Experience: I'm very surprised at how strong the College of Liberal Arts is at Oregon State University since it is a research and engineering-centered institute. The staff cares deeply for their students both academic performance and health. I felt at home here even though I was technically away from home.

I'm also impressed by the variety and size of the cultural centers. I feel they help minority students in their academic endeavors and mental as well as social health.

The big downside I have for this school is the Greek culture. It's perfect for anyone who wants to join a frat or sorority, but they can be rather disruptive and obnoxious.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I like the administration on campus. Especially the police. They're really helpful to students and make safety a priority.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I'm having a really hard time finding scholarships that I'm eligible for. As a member of the middle class, I'm very fortunate to have my needs met at home. That being said, my parents can't afford my college education, and I anticipate that I will be crippled by debt if I can't get scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I've eaten at Panda Express, McMennamin's, and McNary Dining Hall. I think the food is great and I love the atmosphere!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't personally live in campus housing, but my best friend lives in the dorms and I visit all the time. The facilities are nice, friendly, and right on campus. He describes it as a great place to live. I have nothing but good things to say about the OSU dorms.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing in a college town is more expensive the closer you get to campus. Being close to campus is nice because you can walk to campus and be close to Monroe and all of the food. Further away from campus is a lot cheaper and usually nicer apartment options, but then you have to drive to campus or rely on the bus and parking passes are expensive and there is no guarantee you'll find a spot. You just have to decide what is more important.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Just an average selection of fast food, and random cafes and grill locally owned.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are a few bars on campus that are always full of college students on the weekend. Plus there is a pretty decent greek life that has parties. You don't need to party to get involved and have a positive student experience.

3 College Junior

Administration: This campus is very relaxed, but it feels safe.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Make sure to talk to an advisor. That is the only way to really figure out what is going on, and talk to them a lot! It takes awhile to get a hold of anyone, but the wait is worth it. The earlier you talk to them the easier your financial aid process will be.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are plenty of places to get food and plenty of variety. All the food is decent so no matter where you are on campus you can find something good. The only problem is the lines during busy hours.
