Oregon State University Reviews
Review Oregon State University
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!
As an Ecampus student at Oregon State University, I am really impressed with how helpful the staff is. Anytime I have had a question I have been able to pick up the phone and get the answer that I'm looking for in a timely manner. The process of submitting my application, getting accepted, and enrolling for classes was very simple! I know that I made the right choice when I chose Oregon State University.
Oregon State University is a great school! The campus is gorgeous and all of the buildings are very close together; you can get anywhere in 10 minutes. It's also right next to Monroe Avenue which has so many great choices for food. There is a ton of diversity and a wide array of majors and minors to chose from. The nightlife isn't very big outside of Greek life, and since the town is so small, there isn't a whole lot to do on the weekends.
