Ecampus #5 in the nation

OSU Ecampus ranks in nation’s top 5

Oregon Staters aim high. That’s why, for the fourth consecutive year, OSU Ecampus was ranked one of the nation’s five best providers of online education by U.S. News & World Report. OSU has placed in the nation’s top 10 each year since 2015 and is lauded for its student engagement, services, and technologies and faculty credentials.

Oregon State also received top rankings as the nation’s:

  • 2nd Best Online Psychology Bachelor’s Programs
  • 4th Best Online Business Bachelor’s Programs
  • 13th Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans
  • 24th Best Online Master’s in Engineering Programs

Completing Reser Stadium fundraising status: Blown out of the water!

Congratulations to former OSU student Johnny Hekker, who punted a season-high six times in Sunday's Super Bowl and helped bring the Rams to victory. This is the ninth consecutive Super Bowl with at least one Beaver on the roster!



Greater diversity for a stronger OSU

Last summer, a gift from Steven Jackson helped OSU pilot a new program designed to help recruit underrepresented faculty and staff. 

"We want this to be a place where students and faculty realize that OSU will welcome them with open arms and they can thrive," said the OSU Foundation Trustee and former pro running back.
