Worth several wanders, if you're in Corvallis. Impressive stadium and don't miss the Beaver Store if you're an OSU fan.

Its so beautiful and innovative, a must see for visitors to Oregon. There's a lot of recreation in the area including hikes, paths, and parks. There's so many cultural and sporting events on campus and the town is full of great places to eat. Awesome place.

We went to visit OSU as our son is interested in Engineering. We were extremely impressed with the university. It has the feel of a very "traditional" college campus, in the heart of Corvalis but clustered enough that it's easy and safe to get around; no major streets going thru the campus.

OSU has a couple of nice older buildings, Weatherford Hall being a must see in middle of campus. The best part of OSU is to walk around and look at the trees and other plantings.

My granddaughter graduated June 2014 from Oregon State University. What a beautiful campus. Reser Stadium was very impressive. Over 3,500 students graduated. What a thrill to be there.

We planned a trip to 2 colleges in Oregon for the grand daughter. We had an amazing time and enjoyed all that OSU has to offer. The tour guides we had were very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great choice to check out the school.

I visited the engineering building and it seems to be a new one (<10yrs). It has a very good design with very well equipped labs. I visited the city in a football game between OSU team and other team, and the city was very crowded, all streets around the university are fully parked.
