Together, We Can Make An Impact

OSU-Cascades in Bend is building on Oregon State’s tradition of academic excellence, with an edge that’s all our own. Nearly 1,400 students are enrolled at OSU-Cascades, and 60% of them are from Central Oregon. Our students are challenged to go beyond the expected, discover what’s possible, and make the world better.
