OSU-Cascades is a small, friendly campus, often selected by students for its small class sizes and intimate academic environment that enables meaningful student and faculty interactions. Additionally, the size of the campus encourages a high degree of interdisciplinary interaction and collegiality. At the same time, a strong partnership exists with OSU-Corvallis, which has a diverse student body of 25,000 students from across Oregon, all 50 states, and more than 100 countries.

OSU-Cascades is located in Bend, Oregon. Dubbed the “outdoor playground of the West” for a thousand good reasons, Bend is world-famous for both its outdoor pursuits and pristine beauty.
