5 College Senior

Academics: My program is one of the best in the nation. Merchandising Management is a very unique program that not many universities offer. I love it! The classes, the professors, the curriculum and the opportunities for jobs and internships is amazing. The school in which my program is under puts on a career symposium every year, where they bring in industry professionals to interact with current students.

Academics: When most people think of Oregon State they think of engineering and agriculture but we have a lot of other great programs. We have many options for undergrad, graduate and online.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I would say Academics is a very high standard here. We're all here to better ourselves and to learn more to enhance ourselves in life.

Academics: There are two dedicated study areas in the Valley Library where TAs for Math and Science will help with homework problems/questions. There are Learning Assistants in most dorms that can help with writing and reading and study lounges where people can study together in peace. The professors that I've had are all nice and the registration process can be irking with so many students vying for the same classes. Overall, the academics at OSU have a little something for everyone.

Academics: You are as great as your teacher. If you get a horrible teacher and have to rely on study sessions and self teaching, it makes it harder. However, if you are given an excellent teacher, you are inspired to learn. Its hit or miss, but ratemyprofessors.com makes a big difference on enjoying or hating a class.
