4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food was great for the first 5 months, then I realized the lack of variety. But the freshly made food tastes have a pretty good value and taste, it's just the pre-made foods that are ridiculously expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All dorms seem the same, it's cramped and have communal bathrooms, but the food is right downstairs so it's manageable.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've had some good experiences and some bad

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's close and pretty cheap but wish there were more healthy options

3 College Junior

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: people love to celebrate life together! Its easy to find someone to party with on the weekends and the bar scene is fun too!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I prefer local and organic food...wish they had more options for local progress via the campus

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is well managed and i was able to meet lots of new friends!

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many course instructors are young with very little experience teaching. Some professors are excellent while others are worse than teachers that I've had in community college and in high school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have tried to join clubs pertaining to my major and am currently searching for an internship as well, but do not have many resources.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Due to the recent case in regards to a female student being raped by 3 other students, campus safety is not as good as it should be. There are lots of reports dealing with sexual assault on campus that get ignored and the problem keeps occurring.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I did not participate in rush; therefore, I missed my opportunity to join a sorority. However, a few of my friends are involved in Greek life and love it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our recreation center is amazing. If I had the option to live at the REC instead of in an apartment, then I would do it in a heartbeat.

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.
