This campus is just beautiful. Certain parts have an Ivy League feel like Waldo Hall. It is currently going through a bit of construction but still worth visiting even just to walk around.

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. It is very bike friendly too so students... More

A very nice place to stroll through extensive tree plantings with occasional interesting artworks. There are good coffee and gift shops in the Memorial Building.

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. There's a lot of tree diversity, with good viewing almost any time of year but spring through fall is best. As for academics - the... More

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.

I visited a friend who attends OSU, and she gave me a tour of the campus. It was very pretty, and some of the buildings had beautiful architecture. It was very spread out to me, walking over the whole campus took a bit of time, and if you have trouble walking long distances you may not be able to cover... More

OSU (Oregon, not Ohio or Oklahoma) is one of those under-rated jewels of a campus, but that is one of its attractions. Univ. of Oregon may be bigger, more sprawly, and with (mostly) better sport teams because of all that Nike money, but OSU is warmer, friendlier, and offers lots of cultural, artistic, intellectual and sporting attractions to residents and...

Okay, actually I was and still am. Have multiple degrees from OSU. Proud alumni - judge it by more than its athletic teams (which are very good) - great academics, traditions, serious place to have fun. Got concurrent BS/BS back in 1976, couldn't find a better program so when time to go back for my MS I did so at... More
