OSU-Cascades is younger, more diverse due to largest-ever first-year class

Official enrollment numbers show 23 percent of first-year students are people of color.

Oregon State University-­Cascades’ current first-year and transfer student populations are officially the young university’s largest to date, and the former group is making the campus both younger and more diverse.

The college welcomed 113 first-year students this fall, a 32 percent increase from last year’s class, although lower than initial projections of 40 percent in September, according to OSU-Cascades statistics.
