Portait of Nyssa Engebo
Kelso, WA


Hello! My name is Nyssa and my pronouns are she/her/hers and I am from Kelso, Washington. I am a second year student majoring in bioengineering, with the goal of developing affordable and accessible medical devices.

I was drawn to Oregon State because of the supportive teachers and family atmosphere within the college of chemical, biological, and environmental engineering. Being apart of the honors college is an added bonus, with the smaller class sizes and unique elective opportunities as well as the abundance of resources provided to the students. 

Moving to Oregon State during online school, the Honors College helped me find a community and made me feel at home.

I can answer questions about the Honors College, College of Engineering, on-campus jobs, and stuff to do in Corvallis! I am involved in CBEE Student club, Engineers without Borders, and the Society for Women in Engineering. Please, feel free to reach out with any questions!
