Oregon State University

Beaver Nation

More than an Athletics Training Program

Oregon State University, located in beautiful Corvallis, OR, offers top-notch science and engineering programs, many liberal arts programs, and a PAC-12 leading education program. Unlike many other universities on the West Coast and across the country, Oregon State University places a preference on a strong academics program rather than making a name as an athletics-first school. Corvallis is a beautiful city, home to over 55,000 Oregonians. It has numerous activities to do in its vibrant atmosphere.
