5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Going to the University of Oregon was the greatest decision of my life. The out-of-state tuition is rough, but I believe it is well worth every penny I am spending. Being from the South, I can say that the Pacific Northwest is where I belong. This university showed me a place with kind, open-minded people who make me feel warm-hearted and welcomed. I am a part of a sorority, and as someone who doesn't look like a "typical sorority girl", my sisters have shown me that I don't have to be skinny, blonde and rich to fit in. Moving across the country was hard, but I would never change my decision and cannot wait for the next three years of my life! Sco ducks!!!!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Oregon provides a unique home for so many students. It fosters a sense of community unlike any other school I have attended or visited through its extreme school pride as well as its success in its numerous national-ranked programs. University of Oregon changed my life for the better and couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University of Oregon is a solidly good school and I'm happy to be here. However, on of the main reasons I chose to come here was scholarship money, and I lost many scholarships when my family's income changed slightly, causing me to somewhat regret that I made the decision to come here based on money.

Overall Experience: I love my school and am very glad I ended up there. Now I'm just working on trying to get more scholarships and to pick up my grades because it's very expensive and very hard!

Overall Experience: UO has many active students who participate in clubs and sports. Oregon is generally liberal place.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The lifestyle is nice as the environment is very peaceful and laid back as there are many places to relax and lounge around campus. Living in the dorms was a good experience as it was an easy way to connect with other as many of the halls were dedicated to certain interests and lifestyles. The community at this school is my favorite part because it is pretty diverse and most people are very friendly and accepting of others.

Campus Housing: The campus housing in the University of Oregon is average. For me personally they are to small and the showers are not as private as they should be.

Campus Food: The dining halls and their menus are average. They do serve good food but could be improvements. The best places are GSH and Carson Late night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: At the University of Oregon, housing is quite susceptible. There are dorms on campus and off campus. Each different residence hall has different sizes but they provide the same amount of things. I think the best options as a freshman is living in the dorms because you will get to meet people. When you are sophomore, junior and a senior, the best option will be living an apartment or a house with people. The social atmosphere is excellent because the dorms give you many social events to go to and just the atmosphere of this university is very sociable. The cost is a little pricey, you still get many necessities like electricity, showers, a room and multiple meals. Living in dorms and housing sponsored apartments will be very convient because they are close to campus. The ease of the housing process is very easy and you get to pick what time of room you want. Also, the way you get to pick your roommate is a good process because you can either choose or have a random roommate which is a good way to meet new people.

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.

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.
