Small...

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is a small college within a large research university. Our tight-knit community fosters collaborative, cross-disciplinary research and allows for that personal touch – small classes, connections between students and faculty, peer mentoring, and one-on-one academic advising and career counseling. The town of Corvallis has been voted the no. 2 friendliest college town in America, and CEOAS friends are life-long friends. CEOAS is the perfect platform for exploring your interests, honing your skills, and then jumping off into your future. Want to chat with an advisor? They’re ready to help you.
