The local area of Eugene, Oregon may be small, but it's vibrant and beautiful. From quieter campus trails to historic monuments such as Hayward Field, there is a little something that everyone can enjoy. Bus transportation is free for students at the university as long as they show their ID, and it will take them everywhere--around campus, downtown, even to other cities! Otherwise biking or walking is always an acceptable and easy alternative. Cost of living is extremely high in Eugene, which makes life difficult for a lot of students and even faculty members. Shopping is limited and very kitschy, but the further that you get off campus the more options are available. There are a variety of places to dine, many restaurants featuring delicious inexpensive sushi. The downtown area of Eugene isn't exactly "bustling," and can be kind of sketchy sometimes, but the restaurants, shopping, and culture--there's always something good going on at the Hult Center!--are equivalent to that of larger cities.

I enjoyed my time at the University of Oregon. I was also fortunate to play Division I athletics while I was there as well. The campus combines both classic brick architecture along with the modern-sleek that the is synonymous with the varsity athletics, particularly football. The city of Eugene is a small-town, yet the school spirit gives the university a 'big' school feel. In addition to athletics, the professors are very knowledgeable in their respective fields as the University of Oregon is well-known for its scientific research. If I were able to attend graduate school at UO, I would moved back to Eugene in a heartbeat!

Jobs and internship opportunities are everywhere on campus. Applying for a job or finding an internship is as easy as a drop in meeting with an academic advisor on any given weekday. People are always willing to work here. There are several famous alumni and thousands of successful ones. The alumni association is something else especially in the greek life. It is important to take advantage of that. On campus jobs are also everywhere so if you need to make money while in school, like most people, apply apply apply! Part time work is something a lot of older students take advantage of and something I recommend highly.
