“Amazing campus”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

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.

“New engineering building”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

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.

“Pretty Campus, Nothing Else”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

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 the whole distance unless you drive in between. It features a lot of parks and open grassy spaces in between departments and around campus.

They offer tours, though they are generally geared at perspective students. But they do cover the highlights of the campus.

However, if you don't know someone that is connected to the school, I don't think the campus holds much appeal. If you are there for a sporting event, or some other special event, the campus is worth walking around a bit and checking out. Otherwise, don't go out of your way to visit.

“A great "little" University”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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 visitors, alike. Plus, even without lots of money lately it produces national and PAC-12 champions in sports like baseball,and gymnastics. Beaver fans are passionate about their teams and campus - for very good reasons: it's just a great university!

“Should have been a Beaver!”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

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 OSU. Go Beavs!!
