Oregon State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (26)
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!
Great campus and great place to learn. College town for sure.
For a state school, Oregon State counselors really make an effort to help students who want to succeed. From my experience, I was not a good student but my counselor really helped narrow down what I really liked to study and find Anthropology. I went from academic probation to honor roll. Oregon State also offers diverse extra curricular activities. I found an awesome program that sent me overseas to teach swimming lessons and day camps on military bases. At Oregon State you can really find your niche and make lifelong memories while getting an extraordinary education.
Good programs with variety of teachers. open to research limited funding in certain programs. watch out for graduate school office they are not great about not losing paperwork.
Excellent community. If you're ambitious, there are many opportunities to become involved. The education was well worth its money, which is hard to find these days!
I had a great experience at OSU. In the Agriculture Business department, classes are small and really personalized so you really feel like you are learning real life skills, not just things out of a textbook. The course load allowed for plenty of room for extra curriculars too. Some colleges at OSU have much larger lectures than this one, some of which I attended, but overall I'd say my experience was a positive one. I left OSU with life skills that I could use immediately in the admin job. The only downfall is I wish the college offered better job placement services because when I graduated the entire job search was up to me. Whereas in other college departments they offer better help finding jobs.
Great campus, plenty of things to do. Exercise and sport sciences has a great program. Class sizes are a little outrageous for some classes and some of these professors for classes are research students so their motivation to teach can be relatively low.
