4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: A good number of people consider joining a fraternity or sorority for the community experience. There are also a number of people who rent out townhouses/houses to have that community experience. What people don't really know about are the houses owned by religious organizations; these also provide a great community experience with very affordable prices.

Party Scene: It really depends on where you go. Bars are good fun. Mostly it depends on the group that you are with. The party scene can get quite messy, but it allows people a chance to unwind from school.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The variety is phenomenal. There are cheap places and expensive places. There are also many different atmospheres and scenes to choose from!

3 College Senior

Administration: Dorm strictness is very subjective. I believe that resident assistants should undergo more strict regulation.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The need based financial aid was difficult to complete. The merit-based scholarships were easier to apply for. In terms of receiving merit-based financial aid, it helps to have an idea of what your passions and ambitions are.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: It's great that common grounds is open late. I think it'd be helpful if more of the dining places were open late.

Campus Housing: Cost is quite expensive. However, the food is amazing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University of Oregon is a big school in a small town. Eugene is more liberal than many college towns, however, and it offers a lot of atmosphere for its size. Tolerance and acceptance are strong values in the area, and many students like the feeling of community that comes from living in a town this close-knit. UO has something for every style and mindset, along with a wealth of opportunities and experiences to prepare you for the world outside college. At the UO, you'll find a school that is strong in both athletics and academics, as well as a campus surrounded by the perfect area for outdoor activities. With a beautiful campus and laid-back atmosphere, Oregon definitely stands apart from similar schools. Although ethnic diversity is lacking, there is a wealth of lifestyles and ideas to be found on and off campus. The weakest elements of the UO are more trivial things, such as parking and weather. While the academics may not be Harvard-level, most students feel that they're being prepared for a competitive world both in the classroom and outside of it.

Because of the liberal atmosphere, it's important to know how to balance schoolwork and social life if you come to Oregon. However, this isn't any more of a problem than with most city schools, and few students complain about feeling unsafe or distracted. The University of Oregon can provide the quintessential college experience with few drawbacks, provided you can adapt to life in Eugene.
