Why are university Oregon and Oregon State so close?
I was just looking at a map and saw that Corvallis and Eugene are only 45 miles apart. Thats got to be the two closest major state schools around each other right? I know duke and UNC are closer but at least one is a small private school so very different. I always thought Oregon was more urban and hip and OSU was more rural and conservative. I had always imagined them on opposite sides of the state. Can anyone think of any other examples where two major state universities are clustered so close?

That area of the country is so beautiful. I love driving west from Corvallis to Newport and all those towns on the Oregon coast.

Also Lansing (MSU) and Ann Arbor(UM) are only 65 miles away. Georgia Tech and UGA are around 75ish miles too.

It's not that uncommon.

I just said duke and UNC are culturally different one is a small private school and the other a huge state school. Unc and Nc State are fair though. Wake is actually in Winston Salem much farther than originally in Wake Forest, NC

I miss seeing LSU gear. I really do.

And the people around here have no idea how bad LSU would beat the shite out of both of their colleges, even if they played them on the same day back to back.

Fascinating trivia of the day: Arizona has 3 four year public universities

70% of the population lives in the metros of Phx (ASU) and Tuscon (U of A)
