    At the time I attended, there were 3-4 large computer labs and a few smaller ones. Less than half of the students owned a personal computer. Classrooms were adequate for the teaching environment, but many were being upgraded for multi-media. I cannot speak about dorms, or dining halls, as I didn't live on campus.

    History, Class of 1992

    One of the more unique and popular fund raising activities was a fraternity-sponsored event called the "Mary's Peak Marathon." It was a 26-29 mile, 20-person relay from Corvallis, Oregon to the top of Mary's Peak (5000+ ft. elevation). Teams consisted of 10 men and 10 women. It was so popular, that the roster of teams would fill up in only a few hours, at its height of popularity. Sadly, the event is no longer held. OSU continues to hold several cultural events, China Night, India Night, Hui O Hawaii (Hawaiian) Nights, Latin Night. Something for everyone.
