3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I met some great people in the dorms

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek life and I love it a lot.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the school a lot. So far it's been a great experience and I'm glad I chose this school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: For the most part, I feel safe on campus. This topics are frequently discussed and are always trying to be improved. The university is continually working to increase awareness.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Because my degree is in science, I knew that my fellow peers and I would most likely go on to pursue further education. The UO has an amazing human physiology teaching staff and cadaver lab. This university also has great business and journalism school. I know that many are able to get internships and are offered jobs out of college. There are many leadership opportunities to enhance your resume if you are willing to put in the work. Many students are able to work in research labs and collaborate with other team members, GTFs, researchers, professors, and doctors. The career center/services could be improved.

Campus Housing: Many of the dorms lack in spaciousness (Earl, Bean, Carson, Hamilton, etc.). There is a variety of dorm food to choose from. LLC and Global Scholar dorms are new, spacious, and livable. Living on campus elsewhere can be costly. There is not much food to choose from besides 13th street, unless you have a car and are able to drive.

Greek Life: Although I had a very positive experience being a part of Greek life, there is very little Greek housing. Most fraternities are unhoused, and sorority houses are only able to house 1/6 to 1/4 of their membership during the year. Although there are still stereotypes held against the Greek community, members of Greek life contribute tremendously to the community, campus, and philanthropic causes. They have created weekly educational learning and discussion about sexual assault and violence and are open to discussion about any topic.

Athletics: When there is a football game, the whole town stops and we are all about our ducks. I think that game days are some of the most cherished memories created by anyone who has attended the UO. I attended while Mariota played and received the Heisman and can honestly say that the Autzen Stadium experience is unlike anything else. Not only are the football facilities superb, but the student recreation center was recently expanded and renovated. It is somewhere that is uplifting and enjoyable to be with a positive environment and staff. Many non-athletes, as well as athletes, participate in intramural sports (this includes co-ed teams). There is also a wide variety of PE, sports, yoga, and health classes offered through the Rec Center.

Overall Experience: The University of Oregon has so much school spirit and pride. It is a place were you are allowed to be a unique individual and are accepted for who you are. I will never forget the memories created from football games, tailgates, and walking to Autzen Stadium. If I did it all over again, I would choose the UO in a heartbeat!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus can be sketchy in certain areas at night as some parts of campus is dimly lit or not lit at all which is usually where thefts and such occur. Even some areas that are lit such as Agate still have problems though so an increase of patrol around campus later at night would definitely make a difference.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The strong athletics program is one of the things that brings the most people to UO and the school spirit that Duck fans bring really makes the college experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Oregon has allowed me to find myself and become the person I am meant to be and has also opened my eyes to a whole new world than what I came from. There would be only one reason I would ever transfer/not choose this school. The financial burden. I did not realize the expenses until they came around. It is incredibly difficult to maintain good grades while stressing about financial stability, but overall the University of Oregon has been my ground to become the purest form of me.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I want Oregon to be put on the map for something else besides football. I want to pursue photography and product design by the time i graduate in 2020.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have seen on the news that young women being raped by football players, I am somewhat concerned about that on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As long as I have a warm place to sleep I am fine!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I heard that the black sororities don't have houses, but the others do....

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I hope to get involved in interesting clubs during my freshman ear in college

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Because I am an undergraduate my scale ratings are based on how I hope the professors at UofO are.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't started my first college tern yet, so I have no actual knowledge of the students, professorso or environment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a strong pride for the school but it wasn't my dream school like other people so I still don't feel totally connected. There are some professors who need to leave, rather than wasting student's money and leave room for those professors who are seeking tenure.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm not familiar with this if you're not into sports or business.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe prior to coming here. Now I have to worry about what I wear just because of my gender.

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.
