This Campus is beautiful and I always feel very safe there. We have season tickets to the football games. Our son graduated from this school and we would highly recommend the education OSU offers. It is a school for real life learning.

This is such a beautiful campus to walk through...during Autumn especially. The history and the architecture of the many large buildings are very interesting. This is one of the most beautiful campus' on the West Coast.

Students seem to be enthusiastic and involved!! Nice place...visited with the mascot at the Saturday Farmer's Market in town. Just a fun bunch of kids, and a seriously lovely campus. Lots of art and historic stuff to see.
