Investing in your Future

The CLA Student Experience

When you’re a student in the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University, your education starts in the classroom and extends beyond it. Our students have created a food bank on campus, and pioneered educational programs for prison inmates. They travel internationally to study art, and their internships take them everywhere from Washington, D.C., to archeological digs in Oregon. Our students are mentored by faculty whose work makes an impact. And when they graduate, our students are prepared to be leaders in their communities.
