4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking around on campus. Generally at night it gets a little scary especially if towns people walk through campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses are very challenging and trying to figure out how to test has been a struggle.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have yet to experience this but I am sure it shouldn't be a problem.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm life is a great way to meet new people and make close friends very easily.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Gree life isn't a huge thing on campus if you join that is okay but if you don't then people don't really mind.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities at Linfield for how nice the school is seems a little low and could be improved or expanded to help with the busy aspect of the weight room.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Linfield has the small college experience and you feel close with your professors making it easier to engage in class.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not heard of any security issues. In fact, I have not locked my dorm door in months and nothing has happened to me or my possessions.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not personally looked into internships, but others have told me the career center is helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Each dorm hall is slightly different, so each has its own advantages. I live in the biggest hall on campus, so I got to know a lot of people quickly. Our dorms are a little bigger than others on campus, but none are tiny. Some other halls have sinks in each room, and some quads have a full bathroom and kitchen. Each hall has an advantage.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is known for throwing parties as well as hosting fundraising events. I personally do not know much about greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic programs are very competitive and typically perform well. School spirit is great when it comes to the most popular sports, specifically football and basketball. Our football team performs extremely well, and gets fans from around campus as well as around town to show up and support them. The athletic facilities are nice and kept clean. Athletes and non-athletes alike can easily access the facilities and use the equipment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All my professors have had a lot of office hours and are very happy to help with anything I need. The professors are very approachable, and want the best for their students. I also play soccer at Linfield, and I love that the athletic programs support each other. I am also involved in theatre, which is promoted a lot at Linfield since it is a liberal arts college. The campus is small enough that I can easily walk from one side of campus to the other. The size also allows me to get to know people quicker and easier than if I were at a larger state school. I quickly could recognize people even in the first week, which made the school feel familiar. This helped make the transition from high school to college easier.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus of my school is what makes it unique, it is a perfect place to study, make friends, and relax. Every building has a study hall where students can study without being disturbed and have easy access to teachers, computers, and peers. The school also has its own game room to help students take a break in between study sessions. All these resources have made my experience in college much more enjoyable and productive, and they would definitely make me choose this school again if I could do it all over.

Drug Safety: If you aren't looking for it, you won't see or find it. Peer pressure is low, and policy enforcement is high.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Linfield has made a strong effort to increase the diversity on campus over the past several years and has succeeded.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Linfield offers a great academic program for every department. Power of a small college!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally feel very safe on campus. Everything is fairly close together, but if I ever felt unsafe getting to a destination I can call Campus Public Safety, and barring other pressing issues, they can drive me to where I am going. There are also call boxes and blue light posts everywhere on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a huge variety of classes offered at Linfield, and all of my professors in my first semester have been extremely involved, hands on, and very passionate. Classes are extremely small for all students, and are very engaging. This is one area that was a huge selling point for me when I was choosing a school to attend.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: According to a new system by The Economist magazine, schools are ranked by how much the student will benefit from attending that particular institution. Linfield was ranked the number one school in Oregon, and 27th best in the nation; with students earning over $8,000 more annually than if they had attended another school. Linfield devotes entire weeks to career development, focusing on internships, and other career services.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While some of the buildings are older, they are well maintained. Rooms are spacious and the residence life staff are very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Having not yet joined Greek life, I am unsure of how to best review them. They are visible on campus in the various ways they support their individual philanthropies.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Compared to the highly ranking teams, the facilities in which they practice and play in are mediocre at best. The facilities staff does an excellent job of maintaining the areas at a high level of cleanliness, as a well as to keep them in top usable condition for as long as possible. School spirit is present, but not from more than 50% of the student population until a team makes it to the playoffs.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being on a small campus with only undergraduate students allows each individual's desire to learn to flourish. The campus student government plans a plethora of events weekly, and it is easy to make friends among peers. The learning environment is taken very seriously, and as a liberal arts college every class is a necessary part of each student's education and treated accordingly.

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.
