This is the third or fourth time I've come to this site to find reliable stats and have found blatant mistakes. Also, why can't I leave a comment about 'people'? Thank God this fool isn't making actual books anymore, where he'd need an Read More

ambience & cost - 4/7/2013
Corvallis has all the charm of a quaint, semi-rural community--with a river running through it, farms and outdoor recreation areas nearby--plus the intellectual stimuli provided by a state university and companies like Hewlett Packard. As a San Francisco Bay Area refugee, I'm reluctant to elaborate since I don't want to encourage an influx of California emigrants. Read More

Racists in Corvallis? - 7/20/2012
My family and I just spend 2 weeks in Oregon on the west side in the Williamette Valley, Eugene, Corvallis, Springfield, Salem and Portand visiting long time friends. We stayed a couple of nights in Corvallis. I have to say overall it was gorgeous! The air was fantastic, and the water is to die for. The people in Eugene and Springfield were very nice and gracious and most people in Eugene were really friendly. My husband and I are contemplating moving out of the central valley in CA for clean air, water, and green trees. We went to a particular resturant in Corvallis and what I experienced there, was very tasteless. Of course it could have just been the waitress we had. As she took my order, she never looked at me, just my husband. I am Irish and asian with light olive skin and brown hair. I felt she was being racist and I have NEVER experienced this. Is this an overall thing in Oregon? We are in our late 50s and are financially secure. I have so many friends and relatives up north I Read More

Great College Town - 7/3/2011
Corvallis is a great place to go to school in. The people are friendly, the grass in green and the girls are pretty! But the weather is terrible! Rains nearly every day during the winter and by winter I mean October-mid June... The Summer weather is nice but the town is empty because the students have all gone home...
Overall, this is a very nice, safe place to go to school but I wouldn't live here if I wasn't a student. Read More

housing prices in corvallis - 8/27/2009
I love corvallis, have for a long time, but it is too expensive to buy a house. I am looking at about 200,000 cash and the only homes available are crappy looking one level ramblers. Its unfortunate that Corvallis has not realized they have outpriced most people from the market. With the job losses at Hewlitt Packard and other companies in Corvallis when will houses fall into line. I don't care they say they were not part of the bubble they are keeping people like myself from moving into the Read More

Any direction you will find fun - 2/25/2008
Although the city can be a bit bum at times the recreation avaiable is unbeatable. You can float the river on hot days or hit the mountain when it's cold. There is always something within an hours drive. There are also lots of city league and club sports for volleyball, baseball, frisbee golf etc. If you like the outdoors, quite, clean, friendly town than Corvallis is a place you'll like to Read More
