INTO Oregon State University is pleased to host the 2012 INTO Staff Conference. This theme of the meeting - "Delivering the Student Experience in 2012" should prove to be an excellent opportunity to gather together and explore new opportunities for our staff, our students and our world of INTO.
The charming city of Corvallis is home to Oregon State University. Located on the west bank of the Willamette River, Corvallis is nestled in the picturesque heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Long considered the "Eden" at the end of the Oregon Trail, the lush Willamette Valley provides a wonderful setting for your stay. Visitors to the area delight in the wonderful appeal of our historic campus, downtown shopping and dining district with area attractions set between the amazing backdrops of the coastal range foothills and spectacular Cascade Mountains. Conveniently located only 85 miles south of Portland, just a short distance to the Pacific Ocean and Cascade Mountain Range and nearby to numerous area attractions and wineries, our location will offer you a multitude of pre- or post-conference activity options.

About Corvallis, Oregon
Corvallis, Oregon is in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Home to Oregon State University, it is the quintessential college town. The wide streets, sheltered by ancient trees, masonry buildings and its location along the Willamette River make Corvallis a handsome city. This central location makes Corvallis an ideal place to stay as you explore other areas such as the Coast Range, nearby towns and wildlife areas.
The 500 acre Oregon State University campus is the state’s oldest institution of higher education, and the center of much of the town’s activities. Activities on the park-like campus include theater productions, concerts, films, art exhibits, and all types of college sports. There are bookstores, restaurants, craft boutiques and other shops along the edge of campus.
Running and biking are favorite pastimes in Corvallis. Bike lanes are included on most streets, and there are routes along the Willamette and Mary’s rivers. Trails for hiking or biking are available in Avery Park (15th Street and US 20), or in OSU’s Peavy Arboretum (8 miles north on Hwy 99W). Corvallis is also close to the Siuslaw National Forest, a 630,000 acre forest that includes the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. There are campgrounds, hiking, picnic areas, fishing, hunting, and many more activities available in the national forest.
