Oregon State University Reviews
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.
Decent, large public school that has a smaller college feel.
OSU is a great college to attend for any engineering discipline. The curriculum fully prepares you for a career in the field of engineering. OSU has a great campus and student life is full of fun.
I regard my time at Oregon State as some of the best years of my life. The overall experience was fantastic and I felt I was legitimately prepared for the real world upon graduation. Go Beavs!
