Okay, then I apologize for the inconvenience and my terrible grammar and spelling earlier.
Kudos. One of the few times somebody actually owned up, and was willing to move on, rather than arguing to the point of nauseum.
Now as far as a replica on campus, my take would be that unless you were able to transport and store it in a manner in which nobody could tell it was a gun, I wouldn't do it. Something smaller like a retractable stock MP-5 that was kept in a duffle or something might be ok, if you were very diligent regarding keeping it concealed, would probably be ok. But the last thing you, OR the airsoft community needs is somebody freaking out over an assault weapon being seen on campus, and creating negative press.
As far as places close to Corvalis, there's The Swamp in Lebanon. They usually have an airsoft game once a month. I couldn't attend the last one, but heard there were a few too many people for the size of play field. But, they are expanding, and every time I've played there it's been an absolute blast. Very inexpensive as well, and they advertise their events on this site as well. And the guys that posted previously that are in your area are good guys. If you find an area to play, but em up. They know people, and maybe you can make a game of it. Who knows, maybe even my fat ass will show up???
Good luck, and welcome.
