Dream Big

Oregon State University was founded more than 150 years ago as a land grant institution, building on the idea that everybody deserves access to education. When it opened in 2016, the OSU-Cascades campus fulfilled a 30-year quest for higher education in what had been the largest region in the state without a four-year university. We are growing for Central Oregon and beyond.
