4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Linfield has a beautiful campus and everyone is so friendly! It's nice to have professors know you by name and not just a number.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's great! A lot of the forms are scattered online and in paperwork, which makes it hard to be organized, but the admissions staff is very friendly.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The faculty at Linfield are all extremely knowledgeable and provide a very high quality learning experience. The small class sizes make it easy to get to know your professors and peers and make the class unique to that group's needs. I've made some great friends and had a lot of fantastic experiences. I've learned more than just what was in my classes and changed a lot as a person, for the better. I wouldn't change my time here for the world.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Sometimes I wish I had applied to more schools, but feel like I wouldn't have learned this much or gained the friendships that I have without coming here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being here at Linfield, but wish there was more offered for food--everyone does. The professors are amazing and understanding, and so are the class sizes (my biggest class was 35 students and it is an intro class required for about half of people trying to get a BS).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At least for the nursing majors, I have not met one that has not gotten a job right out of school as a nurse.

Local Area: 3rd Street was voted the 2nd best main street in the country. While it is amazing, the town seems to get boring after awhile.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Small towns mean less opportunities for dating. I have not dated at Linfield simply because I have never been asked and most of the people I know are already in committed relationships either on campus or back home.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have decided to take all of my medical needs off campus, because of the number of times I was misdiagnosed by the Health Center. They are good for allergies (which I was misdiagnosed with), birth control, and the common cold. More than that, I would recommend going to the Townies and asking them who the good doctors are in town.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Fraternities have houses, and the Sororities have chapter rooms in the basement of (there is a law in McMinnville saying that more than 30 women living in one house is considered a brothel, so Sororities cannot have houses). About 40% of campus is part of Greek Life, which is nice, because you don't feel forced to join, but you feel accepted wearing letters around campus.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of houses that rent to seniors, people over 21, and married couples near campus, but before meeting one of these requirements, you cannot live off campus. Freshman and Sophomores are required to live in the dorms, and Juniors and Seniors can live in apartments on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: For being in a small town, it is great. It would be nice to have a car to get to some of them sometimes though.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I wish I got to know the administration outside of the meal plan, and when I did, I felt horrible about myself.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I got sick eating at Dillin and am having to pay for the meal plan as well as to feed myself.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Just be open and talk to the people working in Financial Aid--they are willing to work with you.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It has been great living here, but most of the res halls do not have elevators, which makes moving in and out tough, but overall, it is amazing.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The people are great but the parties aren't great, the houses for the fraternities are gross and the events are okay. The boys seem to bond better than the girls do.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: GIVE US NEW FACILITIES!! Our weight room is like a dungeon. It is tiny, in the basement of the gym and has no wifi or cell service. The cardio room has no windows at all, is also tiny and overcrowded.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know anything about off campus housing other than it is cheaper than living in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Adults love McMinnville because they have real jobs and actual money that they can spend at nice pricey restaurants that are on 3rd Street. However, for the rest of us college students the food budget and budget in general is tight and we can't afford to eat at the restaurants on 3rd street. I also hate that I can't find good sushi anywhere in town.

Off-Campus Housing: It just depends on what you get, the school only allows 21+ off campus though

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is one street that is nice but the rest of the town is cheap fast food and a Shari's. Expect to see drunk people at Shari's and Muchas Gracias if it's dark out.

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the administration here. They seem like they have started really cracking down on the rules around here more.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Don't be stupid about drinking and don't talk about it in the dorms if you're doing it and you won't have trouble.

Party Scene: It feels like you're at a high school party but the people are less awkward. Still awkward, just more like uncomfortable awkward and not personally awkward.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The majority of students states that Linfield College is excellent if you're looking for smaller classes, individual attention, and a focus on academics with the opportunity to enjoy sports and extracurricular activities. Linfield has excellent professors who really care about students; the only drawback is that the school is located in a small rural town, where it can sometimes seem boring. However, if students are willing to look hard enough, there is always something to do, no matter what students' interests are. Generally, everything is accessible, and there are plenty of resources. It's relatively easy to find your niche.

Linfield is an excellent college for those who are looking for a small school with a focus on academics, access to professors, and a strong emphasis on the study abroad program. The College is perfect for students who want a balance between academics and developing leadership skills through civic events in the community, internships, as well as having the time to participate in extracurricular activities. The College's mantra is that "Linfield is a place of connecting learning, life, and community." Hands-on learning through projects and developing real world skills from internship programs and international study (as well as extracurricular activities) are valuable experiences that students prize at Linfield.
