The education focused program verses the profession focused program is a huge pro for me.

I find the culture of Corvallis is very reserved and closed, thus for someone that has always made friends easily this has been difficult for me to live here. Since this is a small town with reduced housing opportunities the rents have increased drastically. Where a 1bdrm when I first moved here about 19 months ago was around $400 and now you would be lucky to get one under $700 a month. It is not like our income is increased. Corvallis is marginalizing people that are not well off and making them move out due to increased costs in food and rent.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my program. It has been interesting, relevant, and challenging. However, being a full-time k-12 teacher has made it extremely difficult to complete in a timely manner and the continuing enrollment requirement has been a financial drain. I also feel there should have been better advisor support throughout. I believe a doctoral program should have more--not less--safeguards to ensure program completion. Unfortunately, I believe these are all issues that have contributed to the high number of students who end up ABD (all but dissertation).

It is a great program that just expanded from a department of public health to a school of public health. The faculty support is amazing.

It is a unique program with excellent professors. It gets expensive when you are paying for quarter tuition.

Oregon State University is quite proficient in its scientific research and academic community. The faculty is from all over the world, and offers many different facets of science. I am a graduate student of the Marine Resource Management, and the faculty is very supportive and aggressive to match students with different projects and funding opportunities. I am very fortunate to be part of such a progressive graduate program and profound scientific community. GO BEAVS!!!

The sciences are strong at OSU and you can make your masters program the best program to fit your needs if you are ambitious and diligent. This is not a school that will guide you along your way but you will be given all the tools you need to make a great career for yourself. The town is completely devoid of culture or history, but if you like football and the outdoors you can certainly lead a nice little life here.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a current second year veterinary medicine student at Oregon State University. Let's start out with some cons haha. Of course the workload is demanding and overwhelming at times. The stress level increases and you get caught up in school that you start to forget what is really important in life (like family, friends, socialization, and time to yourself). But the pros are what makes students like myself keep going. The passion and drive to reach our goal of becoming a veterinarian is what motivates us to push on. The professors are wonderful and compassionate about us learning - they know we are the future in vet med. In the end, this is such a small period of time in life and there are so many more years to come. So...study hard and have fun in the process! My motto is to do whatever makes you happy :)

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

I love the living environment in Corvallis, home of the Oregon State University, it is a beautiful city and the people are friendly, which makes me feels at home here and find it comfortable to focus on my study. In terms of quality of education, I think the school does excellent job of supporting the students in reaching their goal, by providing complete facilities (softwares and hardwares) in order to enable the students develop their potential to the highest.
