Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Construction Engineering Management program in Oregon State University is highly favorable program to advance experience and education in managing a project especially in civil engineering field. This graduate program is likely designed to those who are interested to integrate their engineering concept and practical skill. Oregon State University uses quarter time frame which enable student to take more classes for completion of the program. Considering the nature of many different view of knowledge in civil engineering, taking many classes is a great advantage to incorporate all views. OSU has many exhaustive and comprehensive classes. Cons: Good civil engineer is an engineer with integrated and practical skill. In order to be able to have those skill, student need to study more thoroughly by taking more time. Thus, quarter system that is enforced in OSU is not suitable in regard of understanding.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2013

I am in the apiculture part of the Horticulture Master's program, so I benefit a lot from the nearby research fields and apiaries around campus. My advisor does not expect his students to have cars, so if I need to get out to do research, I can borrow one of the trucks from the university. The city is bike-friendly and the bus system is free, and is convenient for me because it stops right outside my apartment complex. The area is gorgeous! The OSU campus is also very desirable--with beautiful buildings and landscaping, many places to eat and socialize, popular sporting events and plentiful extracurricular activities. I would say the only thing I have really had to adjust to is the weather here--it is cold and rains often.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoy the pace of the graduate program, I just wish it was more affordable so that I could take more than 1 class at a time without going head-first into massive debt :(

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

For an MBA program, Oregon State is a good place to go. This isn't a top level program, but the program has come under new leadership in the past year with many positive new changes. In a few more years, as the program is developed, the OSU MBA program will begin to be more valuable than in previous years.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Oregon State College of Veterinary Medicine has the smallest class size in the US, and there are many hands-on opportunities.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Oregon State provides a great overall program for the DVM curriculum. Each graduating class has a maximum of 57 people and therefore provides much individual attention and support. The financial aid is lacking compared to other institutions but the cost is also much lower. There are many opportunities to get involved and explore career options and Corvallis is a nice town to live. The community is clean and safe and easy to get around.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

Oregon State's mathematics graduate program is fairly small, but still large enough to be relevant. I would have liked to have more opportunity to focus more on algebra as opposed to other areas of math, but there are only 4 faculty members in algebra/number theory. I knew that coming in, but chose OSU because of the great community and campus. I have virtually nothing bad to say about either.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program in chemistry here at OSU is very good. All the faculties and staffs are very supportive. There are teaching and researching assistantship available and the living expense here in Oregon is not expensive. I like my program so far.
