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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: It is an excellent facility

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.

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.
