Portland area valedictorians once again overwhelmingly choose OSU

June 5th, 2010

The Oregonian released its annual survey of Portland area valedictorians. Once again, Oregon State University is the top destination for Oregon’s highest achieving students!

Where they’re headed
42 Oregon State University
21 University of Oregon
20 Portland State University
13 University of Southern California
11 Pacific University

We are so proud that virtually every year, OSU enrolls more students ranked number one in their high school class than any other Oregon institution. We look forward to having every single one of next year’s new students on campus!

    As an OSU alum I’m happy about the decisions by such high achieving Portland high school students. But I think if a private college costs were equal to OSU’s, the list might look slightly different. So I think we should savor the outcome, especially OSU over U of O, but I think this list is more about the great value OSU represents to a top end Portland high school student who wants to attend a high quality college within Oregon without incurring a $55,000 per year private university tuition, room and board bill.

    If money were no object, and students applied for and gained admission to all schools they applied for, and these same students were willing to go to a college anywhere, I think the list of colleges attended might look significantly different. But each person has a unique set of reasons where they apply for and then decide to attend a certain college. I’m just glad OSU seems to be at the top of list for some great high school students.
