3 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the employers at the U of O are very passionate about what they do and the quality of their work is always really good. They strive to be the best for their school!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: U of O is great when it comes down to making each student feel safe. At night when leaving the library I sometimes do not feel safe, so I always carry a pepper spray, but when leaving the library there are always two or three cops in front of the library watching people leave safely, or to make sure nothing bad happens. There is also a hot line that you may call for a police officer to walk you home, if you are ever afraid.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It had its ups and downs, but overall it was a great experience. It's so nice living on campus because the proximity to classes, but you are living pretty much where all the events are being held. You have a different vibe, it is home so you feel safe, which is good! Also living with people is always hard, but imagine living with people whom you do not know at all or are completely different from you, this is why it's always weird first year, because you're getting to know people while you get to know more about yourself. The social atmosphere is always good, you're mostly never alone. In the dorms, it might get annoying when your dormmates are loud or when you and your roomate do not get along.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not all of greek life is bad. It's not mostly sororities. But fraternities are some of the worst ones, because they are known to simply party all the time. They are constantly throwing parties where they only let girls in who they think are cute, and not many guys unless they are in the frat or they are in a group of girls. The rape percentage is always high at frats which is what I mostly don't like about greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at our school are very supported. Of course there are some sports that are more popular than others, but sports on campus are very important to students because it is a way to bond with other students and friends. It is fun attending games with friends, whether it is basketball, volleyball, basseball, cheerleading, acro, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time at the University of Oregon. I have learned so much from my professors and my peers. Living on campus my first year, was such a good experience to have. I was surrounded my many people that I never thought I would meet, because everyone is from different places around the world. My freshman year at UO has really changed me for the better, it has opened my eyes to much more many things. I have become more passionate about social issues and I am empowered to be a woman. Thank you UO

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Since I am a more serious student, I find the parties during the week days annoying.

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.
