Oregon State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (25)
I was lucky to come into Oregon State as an international student and managed to get a generous amount of scholarship! However, due to circumstances I became a permanent resident and the school rather than throw me off my scholarships stepped and found me alternate funding to finish my degree. In terms of classes my professors rather than focus just on theory really focused on application knowledge which prepared me for the workforce and gave me a lot of confidence. Starting from freshman year I had a technical internship every summer both on campus and off which is a very unique experience. The Oregon State community is also very welcoming to students and fosters teamwork very well. I am still in close contact with all my friends and feel lucky to have attended the school. I could not recommend the program more than I do right now. It will give you a good grasp on getting into the real world and understand where you want to go. You will also have a really unique international experience because culture is welcomed and embraced.
Great program and great faculty. I have obtained two degree from Oregon State University and I would have it no other way. The staff are always helpful and I felt like the education I received prepared me well for the field I was entering. The classes provided great information and resources.
Oregon State University is a great school for those students interested in the science or engineering fields. Although the curriculum is extremely rigorous, you are challenged on a daily basis to put in your best effort. Prepares you for your career!
I attended Oregon State University and graduated in 2015. I majored in Human Development and Family Sciences. I was an online only student. This program was perfect for me at the time I attended. I was a preschool teacher looking to finally finish my bachelors degree, but wasn't sure an education degree was what I wanted. I already had a certificate in Early Childhood Education and had been teaching for about 5 years at that point. I moved to Oregon with my parents and began looking for programs in social services that would still work within my job. I eventually found the program at OSU and found that it was a perfect blend of everything I wanted. It allowed me to pursue the knowledge I already had about families but extend it further beyond what I knew in my childcare profession. The degree has three options, I chose the general option, but there is also an early childhood and human services option. I was initially concerned about studying online, but now I know it's what I should have pursued all along. I am a very self motivated person and I read a lot. I was working full time when I started and it fit perfectly with my schedule. I feel now with my degree I am ready to move on from teaching and move into the Human Services field, which is what I will be pursuing for grad school.
I loved going to school in Corvallis. Nice small town, mostly college students, but close enough to major cities. Small class sizes where professors actually care how you do.
This is a great school! The teachers are great, willing to help when you need it.
Great college with a very committed faculty in the CEM program that cared about my career success and how to achieve it through schooling.
Oregon State is located in Corvallis, Oregon--a little more than an hour south of Portland. It's a small town, but there are tons of things to do. The food is amazing, the people are laid back, and the campus is beautiful. Oregon State is most known for its agriculture and engineering programs. They've done a lot of work in the area of sustainability. They also offer strong Liberal Arts classes.
The campus is great, and there's a heavy focus on the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs.
It was a great school for engineers and science students, not so much students interested in the arts.
