    Yay Grimes!!!!
  3. Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    My cryptos aren't gaining value fast enough!!!! They've only tripled since I first bought!!!!
  4. I'm kind of new to the site but have noticed that there are many more social science than physical science people here. If you look at the subforums for different fields of study you'll see many more posts in those about the arts, humanities, and social sciences than natural sciences. Are art or social science people more likely to post on message boards? More likely to stress about grad apps? better at trolling? Are natural science people more likely to lurk? Any thoughts?
  5. Corvallis, OR

    I'm currently finishing up my undergrad at OSU. Overall, Corvallis is a great town - it's pretty small (which is fine, the size of the uni makes up for it) but the downtown is nice and it has many great natural areas in close proximity. Housing is pretty cheap - I'm currently paying 433 a month in rent which is pretty typical for the area. In Corvo (as the locals call it) you're only 90 minutes from Portland and 50 from Eugene, so you can find plenty of things to do on the weekends if you get bored with Corvallis after a few years. The weather is great april - Oct/nov but Dec through march you generally get a lot of cold, rainy days (you'll learn to love them). People are nice, generally liberal with a small but appreciable amount of conservatives, and welcoming. 10/10 would recommend corvallis
