"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!"

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2009
"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."

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013
"Oregon State University's Construction Engineering Management program is great. You have huge amounts of opportunity to regularly meet with industry professionals, have a very high rate of getting internships for the summers and jobs right out of college, and a very knowledgeable set of instructors and professors."

Graduation Year: 2014
"The low level classes are ok, it's probably better to go to a community college for them. I was extremely impressed with the upper division classes. For the vast majority of them, the teachers were competent, caring, and willing to help. I'd go again."

Laurell - 5/8/2015
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2006
"I would highly recommend taking classes at a community college prior to attending such a large school. The 100-200 level class sizes are very large and the grad TA's that are available to help you are ESL. Working with an ESL TA can be especially difficult in challenging classes. However, once you get to 300-400 level classes within your major class sizes begin to decrease which better allows you to create relationships with your peers and instructors."

School is not in favor of working people - 4/2/2015
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"This program seemed fair and challenging, but from the moment it started you had to download 3-5 programs and search for ways to get onto them just to turn them in. Also you cannot talk to your professors just TAs. Good luck locating what you need. Also the load of homework is a lot for a person with a family and a full time job."
