What Bert Has To Say About Corvallis Metro Area

The Corvallis area includes the cities of Corvallis and Albany, 12 miles apart in the central part of the Willamette Valley. Corvallis is the home of Oregon State University, and while the university is a strong factor in the makeup and economy of the town, it isn’t the whole story, and we’ve seen stronger college-town influence and amenities in other places. A large research facility makes Hewlett-Packard the largest private employer. Educational attainment and resources are notably strong. College sports provide entertainment, and nearby recreation in the mountains and coastal areas is excellent.


  • Location: North-central Oregon in Willamette Valley, 80 miles south of Portland
