Who are the students in the College of Agricultural Sciences? Of the 1415 combined undergraduate and graduate students, about 70% are Oregon residents. Of this group, 75% join us from more rural areas of the state and twenty five percent of our students are from out-of-state. The highest numbers of out-of-state students come from California, Washington, Idaho, Hawaii, and Arizona. Five percent of our student population joins us as international students from all over the world. Fifty six percent of our students are female and 44% are male.
Our student and faculty populations come from diverse personal backgrounds, interest areas, experiences, and expertise. Learning is not confined to the classroom. Students are engaged in hands-on learning and training that will give them the skills necessary for the workplace. Every day they are learning together; whether through peer advising or exploring research opportunities. Students commonly engage in groundbreaking internships, for example: studying erosion control and turf management; teaching in rural areas that lack in science and math programs; searching for predator problems affecting fish and wildlife and traveling the world to gain a better understanding of international agriculture.
Spring term registration and planning will present new opportunities to learn and grow. Some students will be wrapping up graduation requirements while others are exploring baccalaureate core courses. Our faculty and advisors are working to ensure that our students get the most out of their education and truly discover a passion for lifelong learning.
