Location

OSU is situated on a beautiful 400-acre campus in Corvallis, Oregon. Corvallis is an idyllic college town with a population of 53,000, and has been recognized as one of America’s most livable small cities for its classic structures, tree-lined streets, and Willamette River frontage; it is also ranked as the fifth-“smartest” university town in the United States, based on the percentage of residents who have attained degrees. Sunset magazine named Corvallis one of its five favorite eco-friendly small towns. Corvallis is located about 90 miles south of Portland, a major urban area with an international airport and thriving industry, about 40 miles from the state capitol in Salem, and about 50 miles from the University of Oregon in Eugene. Corvallis sits in the middle of Oregon’s finest recreational and scenic areas: ocean beaches, lakes, rivers, forests, high desert, and the rugged Cascade and Coast Ranges are all within a short driving distance.
