Oregon State University Reviews
Review Oregon State University
The campus is beautiful! You'll never had a dull time because of events hosted by the university and the numerous activities. The recreational center is a great place to relax and exercise. The educational programs are one of the best in Oregon, a lot of these programs receive funding for amazing research projects.
I love my school. I have found the culture of OSU to be even better than I had imagined. The campus is close together and beautiful, the buildings are very nice and are packed with character. I have found the majority of staff to be very friendly and helpful. Overall, my experience at OSU has been great, I'm looking forward to starting another year!
The school has a strong nuclear engineering program that is small and focused. Each class is interesting and each professor is different, although they all have one thing in common: they are very smart. The program allows students to engage in (as close as one can get to) hands on activities with reactors, radioisotopes, and readings. My favorite experience so far has been getting to stand on top of the OSU TRIGA reactor and watch the Cherenkov radiation glow and then flash as the reactor was pulsed. Getting to see quantum mechanics in action was awesome!
