Bring your gear. Oregon's playground stretches from the surf to the slopes, and we're right in the middle. You could watch the waves break against Oregon's spectacular coastline one weekend, windsurf in the Columbia Gorge the next and make turns on Mt. Hood the week after that. Hike, bike, kayak, climb and ski to your heart's content.
Six resorts offer more than 4,600 acres of terrain for skiing and snowboarding. Mount Hood is home to the only year-round, lift-served skiing in North America.
The coast offers a nearly endless menu of things to do: clamming, whale watching, surfing and much more.
The Columbia River Gorge extends for more than 80 miles along Oregon's northern border. Waterfalls, hikes and windsurfing in the gorge are all within 50 miles of campus.
The wild and beautiful Oregon coastline is just 60 miles from campus.
At 11,249 feet, Mount Hood is the tallest mountain in Oregon and offers incredible skiing and snowboarding opportunities.
Oregon is one of just two states that guarantee public access to its entire coastline. Whether sandy beaches or rocky cliffs, the coast is yours to explore.
Eleven lighthouses stand guard along the Oregon coast. Many of them have been restored, and visitors can take tours inside the buildings.
Haystack Rock, located about 85 miles from campus, is a massive monolith near Cannon Beach. At 235 feet tall, it is the third largest sea stack in the world.
Crater Lake is more than 1,900 feet deep, which makes it the deepest lake in the nation.
