3.0

WHAT I LIKED

I really liked the faculty and staff at Oregon State University.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like the lack of classes for my major. It seems that they wanted to include the arts at OSU which is mostly an agricultural/engineering school. My major seemed it lacked a lot of resources and money.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I truly feel like I fit in at Oregon State University, everyone that I've encountered whether it be students or faculty is so nice and understanding. The dining hall food is better than I imagined. Living in the dorms can be a bit hectic but once you meet people in your hall you'll love it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like that there weren't more options to eat out. Very small city so there aren't big chain restaurants.

WHAT I LIKED

I really like the overall experience, however, due to covid some of the dorms are relatively antisocial. Classes are pretty good and not too hard.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't like how unsocial it can be, the Oregon weather sucks, and the food gets old fast.
