5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The moment i stepped foot on campus I knew I would love it and sure enough I absolutely love this campus, the people, the teachers, everything! I had one bad experience but that's nothing compared to all the good experiences I had. I joined an amazing choir, I am a part of a wonderful music community and I love it and would definitely choose OSU again.

Overall Experience: My two years at Oregon State have been the most important years of my life when it comes to finding out where I want to be, what is most important to me in life, and who I am and want to be. The classes have challenged me in a way that made me realize my small bubble of a hometown did not help me realize the capacity of my mind. I have met people from all over the globe and held conversations with them that were both stimulating and enlightening. The clubs and groups at my school have been extremely important in furthering my life experiences and therefore my education. It's amazing what an impact new groups of people have had on how I perceive myself.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I knew that Oregon State University was the perfect school for me as soon as I stepped onto campus for a tour. The brick buildings surrounded by an abundance of trees nestled in this iconic college town is just beautiful. The atmosphere and people here instantly made it feel as if I belonged.

I began my year undeclared, but had a hunch to pursue elementary education. During my first term, I took a class from the top rated professor at OSU on ratemyprofessors.com and knew that this was something I was passionate about. He was so engaging, knowledgeable, and thought provoking. The program at Oregon State for aspiring teachers is so organized and the advisers have the best interest for the students. They are determined to help us to succeed!

Initially, I didn't intend on joining Greek Life. My roommate recommended it and I thought, "Why not?" I ended up becoming apart of Kappa Delta where I found my mentors, role models, and best friends. They go above and beyond to help their sisters. While still undeclared, I asked a senior in the house who was studying to be an elementary school teacher as well to help me figure out my path. She helped ignite the spark in me just by speaking of her experiences over the past four years. She generously offered to drive me to the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis every Wednesday so that I had the opportunity to volunteer in the Elementary Learning Center to help kids with their homework.

The school pride is unparalleled. The student section at sporting events is like nothing else. Reser Stadium, Gill Coliseum, and Goss Stadium are a sea of black and orange which is so much fun to be apart of!

Overall Experience: Oregon State University is very welcoming as a community and college town. Every adviser/counselor that I met with were all helpful and very kind. Although the transitioning to new surroundings became difficult, I was able to meet a lot of new people that I call friends. My grades were not up to par with the ending of the school year but I will try harder next time and wish for the best.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The first experience I received while on campus, was during a school club convention called Model United Nations. I had no intentions of attending this school, however I grew to have positive recollections of being there associated with Model UN. I had spent a week during cheerleading camp staying in the dorms as well. Not only did the campus feel natural, there was many logistics to go along. I am very adamant about having a clear knowledge of why you are attending college, that you need to spend the time wisely and focus on studies rigorously. Hence, I am paying for my own college so instead of attending nightly parties or drinking, it's important to bulk up your resume, join clubs, maintain fitness, get to know professors, stand out among others and work hard on studies. My college has an absolutely outstanding opportunity for all these and more.

Overall Experience: So far my school experience has been fine. I haven't actually taken classes there yet as I am transferring in the fall from another community college, but as a renowned research and engineering college I'm sure that I will be happy learning there.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love going to Oregon State because the campus is absolutely beautiful. While it rains during the winter, the seasons are more mild than in other areas of the US. I love all the people and just the overall outlook that everyone has at the school. There are so many student groups to get involved in as well, which is great for an Engineering major like me!

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.
