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 For how successful the programs are however it is beyond me how out of date the athletic facilities are.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Overall Experience: The facilities at Linfield are so out of date most high schools easily have better at this point.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.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a mixed experience at Linfield College. I found the professors and classes wonderful. They truly do care about you succeeding academically. However, I found the campus life hard to fit in. I came from out of state and a lot of students were from Oregon and Washington and would go home often on weekends. The school is very cliquey which usually happens the first couple weeks of the first semester. The town itself is very small and you need a car to get around. If you don't have one then you'll have to resort to walking everywhere or finding a friend with a car. There's no reliable public transportation either. The food itself is less than desirable, it's usually the same thing and often times under or overcooked.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are really small and it's very hard to find a time to go when all of the weight room equipment isn't full.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It really does feel like high school all over again, but with better classes and professors.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I don't drink often, but when I want to go to a party it isn't hard to find on campus. I like 3rd street

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Like I said I don't usually go to parties so I don't know

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I have loved all of the professors I have had. Workload is different with every professor.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are mainly white students here. We do have international students from Hawaii and Japan, but besides that our school isn't very diverse

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Depends on the people you hangout with. You can find people who don't do drugs and then you can find people we try everything

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I choose to go to this school accidentally, and it turned out to be a happy accident. I really like going to this school

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I really like the classes I am taking. They make me think and pounder life as a whole

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: CPS is really good on campus, they give complementary rides to students

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing is different in different locations. Some buildings are new and some are old.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life so I don't really know much about it

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: People are really nice at my school, and since it is a small college everyone knows everyone.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: It is an excellent facility

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.
