It's all about Perspective

Attending Oregon State University I have met awesome administration and students that I would have not met elsewhere. As I am attending my second year of OSU I have come to realize your experience here is what you make of it. Many people get so frustrated by how small it is being its a college town resulting in them not enjoying it. Personally I have had the best time here since I have gotten here, but others have not and I think its all about perspective. As far as professors, depending on the classes it could be a hit or miss but there are some good professors here.

Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here

Personally, I did not have an enjoyable time at OSU. The dorms are disgusting, and if you have any problems with your roommate or people in your hall you're better off trying to handle it on your own rather than trying to talk to your RA or resident director. This school will listen to your complaints and smile in your face as if they're taking you seriously, but they really won't help you resolve any issues. You'll end up getting into more trouble for academic dishonesty than sexual assault, unfortunately.
