Campus Quality: It has been great, have met some great friends! Love the campus, security seems to be great, they are always out going around campus. There are alot of campus events and traditions, even though I don't go to hardly any..

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities and campus is absolutely great. The whole campus itself is stunning. The buildings with classrooms are accommodating and nice. There is definitely a good variety. There are a lot of housing options as well, both modern and older. The library is a great place to study.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: we have the prettiest campus, the buildings and greenery are impeccable and charming. the athletic center is mediocre at best, and it has ridiculous hours of operation (it closes at 8pm). the library is nice and offers inter-library book loans, campus events hardly draw large crowds (we are a school of less than 2000 students, mind you) but the activities are generally pleasant if you can manage to drag yourself there.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The facilities on campus are really nice and include traditional brick buildings, ivy, and oak grove—basically exactly how a college should look. The library is especially beautiful, fairly new, and houses a good amount of research material to check out, as well as an ample supply of computers. There are also plenty of useful centers on campus to help students with anything from study tips, tutoring, or help with writing papers. The athletic center has plenty of good equipment, but the weight room is small and could use some upgrading.

Linfield is a beautiful campus, often described as lovely with an East Coast feel. There are up-to-date laboratories, equipment, and research spaces, which are provided for both general and advanced studies. The Health and Physical Education and Recreation Complex houses gymnasiums, weight rooms, fitness laboratories with a hydrostatic weighing tank, a metabolic and pulmonary measuring system, and an electrocardiovascular exercise ECG system. The Maxwell Field/Memorial Stadium is home to football and track and field teams, with natural grass surrounded by an all-weather track. The Roy Helser Field is used primarily for the baseball team, which has natural grass and lights.

"Green" Initiatives
Linfield has a commitment to sustainability, and its contribution consists of reducing carbon footprints through green building standards and energy conservation. Buildings have been retrofitted for energy efficiency, and all major capital projects are required to meet LEED standards. Linfield is also one of the first colleges in the Northwest to partner with a car sharing program that reduces the number of personal vehicles on the road. In addition, there is a student organization called Greenfield that delivers free energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs in exchange for incandescent bulbs.

The entertainment portion consists of professional Polynesian dancers, a drum ceremony with various Hawaiian fire performances, as well as performers from the Hawaiian Club.
  • Oregon Nobel Laureate Symposium: One of only five in the world, this symposium brings to campus Nobel laureates versed on a variety of subjects for public and classroom discussion.
  • Spring Sing: The Spring Sing is a long-time tradition where students get together to write songs connected to the College and then perform them in front of a panel of judges. Because the songs are about students' memories and experiences, everyone connects to the songs, which brings about an audience full of roaring laughter. The two-part competition involves a contest between the residence halls and the suburb apartments, and the second portion concentrates on the music composition. The winners come away with their song published in Linfield's famous songbook.
  • Toga Party: Everyone dresses in a Greek toga, and the fun begins!
  • Wildstock: An end-of-the-year festival with great food and a fantastic concert with well-known bands.
Urban Legends
There is a legend from the Linfield Review that the oldest building at Linfield College, Pioneer Hall (dedicated in 1883), was used as a prank by a few students who took a live cow up the stairs of its attic; however, the cow did not have enough room to turn around and could not back down the stairs, and unfortunately had to be removed in an unfortunate way.
Favorite Things To Do
Attend a "Cat Cab," where professional rock bands, jazz artists, comedians, and various performers entertain students. You can also check out a play at the campus theater for only $5. Hang out, study, or meet up with a lunch date at Jazzman's, one of Linfield's cafés. Get involved with the parties hosted by the fraternities or sororities. Every Saturday night, the Linfield Activities Board hosts free movies in the Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall. You can also head out to the game room in Riley to challenge friends at air hockey, pingpong, and video games. There is also a number of other activities such as swimming, hiking, exercising, tennis, or basketball. Other options include attending varsity games with your friends to cheer on your Wildcat teams.
