All engineering students have to work hard to succeed here but its great! the program is intense but unique in that we have hands on projects each semester and are given experiences and chances to learn that i don't think every other engineering program out there gives. In my 4 semesters here so far i have designed and machined and air powered engine, programed a puma robot to navigate an obstacle course, created my own metallography specimen, programed a circuit board to play the game simon says, and designed, fabricated, soldered, and built an enclosure for a speaker amplifier system. What other soon to be junior in an engineering program can say that?

We have amazing facilities and professors!

Small Town, No Charm – Although Newberg is a friendly community, there is very little to do in terms of off-campus entertainment in Newberg. Coffee shops rule the town, and although they are great, they are not open after 8pm. There are just few mediocre restaurants in Newberg, and only the Cameo (a run-down theater that shows one movie at a time). There is the &quot;First Friday Art Walk,&quot; which I've heard students enjoy. Downtown Newberg can be fun to walk around when it's sunny, and I've never felt unsafe. Students generally drive to Portland when they want to get off-campus and have fun!

They're aren't that many options for eating unless you leave Newberg. There are many cheap fast food options within walking distance, but they're aren't many things other than that. We do have a cute cupcake shop! They're aren't generally student discounts because there aren't that many places to eat at. All in all the Bon (cafeteria) might be the best bet...except for Sunday night leftovers!
