About Oregon State University
Why choose OSU? This is a question that you're probably asking yourself as you decide which university to attend. Luckily, we have countless reasons to attend OSU! 

Memorial Union building

The historic OSU campus is located at the heart of Corvallis, characterized by its red brick buildings, old-growth trees and lush greenery. The Memorial Union (pictured at left), where students gather to study and socialize and where many of OSU’s student clubs are based, is the centerpiece of the campus community. The bustling OSU campus is stimulating and diverse, and the Corvallis community is welcoming. 

Downtown Corvallis is just a 15 minute walk from campus, where a wide range of local restaurants thrive. From fresh seafood to pan-Asian and Latin fusion, Corvallis is a true food destination. Local breweries abound, as well. The farmer’s market, open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, brings the bounty of the Willamette Valley into one location, where fresh produce, meat, cheese, bread and more are available.

It’s a quiet community that’s perfect for studying, but there’s always something to do - from a huge indoor soccer facility to hiking, river rafting, camping and skiing.

Students experience classic American college life at OSU. We hope to see you soon!
