Oregon State University is located in Corvallis, a vibrant college town of 55,000 in the heart of Western Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and has just been ranked the 5th best college town by The American Institute of Economic Research! This ranking is based on performance across 12 areas: student concentration, student diversity, research capacity, degree attainment, cost of living, arts and leisure, city accessibility, creative class, earning potential, entrepreneurial activity, brain gain/drain (the year-over-year ration of population with a Bachelor’s Degree), and unemployment rate.
