Question: In July my family and I are vacationing to Oregon for a week, and I've been doing some research but I haven't really found anything particularly unique or fun to do. I think we're going to be touring the Portland/Corvallis area..near there. Also, I'm flying from the south, so can I expect rather warm weather there? Thanks for your help!

Oregon weather in July will be warm, but nothing like the south. It will be a welcome respite from extreme heat and humidity (what south?). Anyway, the temperatures will be ideal as long as it is sunny. Portland and Corvalis are not necessarily close to each other. It has been 5 years since I have been, and I don't exactly remember, but they are either 2.5 or 3.5 hours apart. 1 hour from Corvalis is Newport Beach, OR, which is one of my favorite beaches. It was even named #6 of the nation's top ten beaches on AOL last year, so visit before it is ruined by development. The water is too cold to swim, but the beach is wonderful for walking. Numerous and very colorful tidepools. The cold water is very clear and the constant water temperature year round allows tidepools to form. 1 hour from Portland is Seaside, OR. Also a beach, but more for the younger populace. Carnival rides and games, etc. The beach here is much larger than Newport, and more crowded. South from Corvalis is the Oregon Vortex. This made the Travel Channels top ten mysterious destinations, but I don't remember the number. My husband and I went 10 years ago, saw it on billboards when driving around. It makes for some GREAT pictures, but that's all I will tell you. Can't ruin the mystery ;-) In the Portland area is the Columbia River Gorge. This is stunning. Great for hiking. Even a day drive through to see all the magnificent waterfalls, including the much photographed Multnomah Falls. The CRG road was cut by a man named Sam Hill, and look into him. If you ever wondered where the saying "What in the Sam Hill are you doing?" came from, visit the Gorge. He built some crazy stuff, including an exact, to-scale, replica of Stonehenge. Trust me, you'll find things to do. ENJOY!!! Oregon is wonderful.

I am writing a paper on why I hate living in my town right now! I live in Astoria Oregon. I don't like very much.... But the thing is as I am writing this paper I am realizing that this place isn't THAT bad, it's just not for me. I don't mind the rain, which is usually the biggest reason people hate it here, but that's not a problem for me.... I just hate the combination of rain, wind, and annoyingly optimistic artists (whose paintings aren't that great anyways.) I SWEAR TO GOODNESS IF I SEE ANOTHER BAD PAINTING OF OUR TOWN'S BRIDGE I WILL KILL BABY ZOO ANIMALS!!!!!! Move where makes you happy, if you don't know where that is, then travel! Good luck.

Oregon is s big ripoff...they think because they have no sales tax you save money...there prices are higher on most things, so much for saving on the taxes, Property tax is way to high! And you get charged a deposit on water bottles and soda can!!! if you want you money back you have to save them then go cash them in at a recycle machine. Rain, Rain, Rain, please go away!!! where is the sun?..I miss the sun!!! so much traffic and people and trees, I'm sick of trees! only been here for about 4 months, moved to be closer to family (Son& Grandkids). Don't know how long I can afford to live here! born & raised in sunny Ca. (bay area) then moved to Reno NV for many yrs. No state tax, low property tax, Sun shine :) very affordable place to live, wages or even higher than Oregon!!! But I don't miss the snow, even though it does not know a lot most winters! But my family is here, so I guess I will be here for a while, maybe move to Vancouver Wa. in a few years!!!

Portland is same as any other city you would see in the west coast. The weather in Portland area is usually cloudy/sunny and can rain just like it would in Seattle. Sites to see: 1. Driving on i84 through the columbia River Gorge. Breathtaking Scenery. Multonomah Falls. Bonneville Dam 2. Mt.Hood http://www.traveloregon.com/Explore-Oreg... 3. Crater lake is in Southern Oregon. http://www.traveloregon.com/Explore-Oreg... 4. Portland area Attractions: check out the Saturday market. You might find something at dirt cheap price. http://www.oregon.com/attractions/metrop... 5. of course the coastal beaches. and Tillamook Cheese Factory. I hope this helps. Have fun.

Unfortunately,Portand and Corvallis reflect a couple of the liberal areas of Oregon. I would go over to the coast and enjoy it over there. Also, Southern Oregon is a great area.

I am an Admissions Counselor at Western Oregon University. It would be best if you would contact our school directly and speak with a counselor. First thing to know is that Western Oregon University and OHSU are different universities. You will start at WOU and if admitted to OHSU, you will become a student of that college while staying on our campus. Both colleges have different tuition rates. Our rates can be found by going to this website: http://wou.edu/student/finaid/tuition_fees/expenses.php, and OHSU's rates can be found on their website: www.ohsu.edu/son. It is important to know that WUE is not available at OHSU. Scholarships for Western can be found on our website. http://www.wou.edu/student/finaid/ There are some automatic scholarships for GPA and test scores and some other general, or diversity based scholarships. All of these scholarships can be received in addition to the WUE tuition rate. Again, it would be best to contact our office directly. Please call us at 503-838-8211 or toll free 877-877-1593. Thank you.
