OSU-Cascades is located in Bend, Oregon. In 2016, OSU-Cascades opened its brand new campus and academic buildings in the heart of Bend’s west side. Dubbed the “outdoor playground of the West,” Bend is world-famous for both its outdoor pursuits and cosmopolitan appeal. Majestic snow-capped peaks permeate the high-desert skyline making for some of the best weather in Oregon. Think sun-drenched days and cool nights.
