4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are warning systems and phones that are accessible throughout campus. That helps in safety. The community is also safety minding which is nice for a college campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The current student that led my campus tour was very easy-going and didn't sound forced when he talked about how great he felt his life at Linfield had been. The campus itself is very nice and any professors I've run across have been approachable and helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They have a wonderful building set up for both active athletes and just athletic students and even students just looking to better their lifestyles. One of the big pluses for me personally is the pool.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am looking forward to the small classes and the professors I've met thus far are very helpful and kind.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Varied options available, along with backups.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career fairs present, varied options but only few.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Nurses/counselors are available and very open.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Registration is a bit stressful at times.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most are social; getting in is time-consuming.

4 College Junior

Athletics: From what I gather, the athletes are dedicated.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm glad I chose my school. I never want to leave.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The teachers and counselors have been really good to work with. However, my biggest hang up is that when I first enrolled in my certificate on-line class, I was scheduled to be done in a year. Now after two terms, the classes that I need to take are unavailable. Now, I have have to wait two more terms before they become available again, which puts my completion on hold. If I had a crystal ball in the very beginning and could have foreseen this delay, I would not have enrolled this in particular school. It's very disappointing.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Linfield is a safe place 90% of the time. Every once in a while, there is a danger to the student body, but the administration is always on top of it. There is a great system to alert students of any danger -- they send out emails, phone calls, and texts at the same time. Students may opt into or out of any of these methods of being contacted.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Many of the buildings have bug problems. There is no air conditioning, but heat works well. Dorms tend to have a good social atmosphere, and rules are enforced well. The housing process could use a bit of streamlining, but it is not too big of a hassle if you have a bit of patience. Overall, housing is average; it has its perks and its downsides.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Linfield is incredibly worth attending. Professors care about the students and are approachable, and it is easy to schedule meetings with them to get extra help or to go over assignments that have already been graded. The students easily find those who they get along with best, but everyone is friendly to everyone including those with whom they have nothing in common.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its a very safe campus. Have not heard of any crimes this year.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The education at Linfield is top notch. Most, if not all, professors are experts in their fields and often had successful careers before working here. All professors I have had here have genuinely cared about their students success and love what they do. Classes are hard, but that is because you are getting a quality education.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The only reason I have not transferred yet is because there are many opportunities that arise from a degree here at Linfield.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is okay, but could be better. Many of the building are older but well kept. Biggest downfall is that you are required to live on campus for 3 years and they are outrageously expensive compared to living off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are 4 frats and 4 sororities. Sororities do not have houses and 3 of the 4 fraternities have houses. They are smaller than that of a big school obviously, but still are fun. I myself am a member of a fraternity. One downside is the faculty does not support fraternities and it is common for fraternities to be on probation and for their parties to get shut down.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The best sports are Football, Baseball, and Softball. The others are average. For how successful the programs are however it is beyond me how out of date the athletic facilities are. For average students it would be okay, but all students and sports teams are required to use the same small weight room that has no A/C, wifi, and a terrible sound system. Attendance at sporting games are usually below average. On campus about 60% of students are athletes.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The facilities at Linfield are so out of date most high schools easily have better at this point. There is no rec center for students and the food is terrible. There are many great people at Linfield but for reasons listed above and numerous others many transfer after their first year. The only pros I can offer are that the professors are very helpful and education is in fact good, other than that however, do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: I came from a very liberally progressive area until I moved here. Many kids from the Portland or Seattle area tend to be a bit more liberal, however there are a fair amount of conservatives.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus halls range from small to large. My current hall has a population of the mid-20's.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is average, fraternities have houses and sororities do not.

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.
