3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think that sexual assault should become more of a priority

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: im not in greek life so I don't know very much about it at all.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: team spirit is huge on this campus and the athletic facilities are some of the nicest in the country. Thanks to Nike! Go DUCKS!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: they could use some work. A lot goes under the radar I feel like.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Its been difficult to get ahold of the financial aid office but its a process. Just have to stay determined and keep bugging them

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.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is significantly cheaper than on campus housing and gives students much more freedom. For example, having their own space with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I go with my friends off campus to eat because there are healthier options and the overall quality of the food is significantly better than on campus dining.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus administration is fairly strict. Officers do what they need to in order to assure campus safety, but don't overbear.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I unfortunately did not receive any financial aid for this past school year, which is tough because my parents are paying for out of state tuition along with housing, food, books, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The best parties are typically the parties at the fraternities because so many people get to go, which makes it easier to party with all of my friends.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: My friends and I will often leave campus to buy food because the campus food is very unhealthy to eat every single day.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is fun because you're always with friends, but also tough because you are secluded to such a small space.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is where most of the parties are. They are very easy to get into even you aren't in a fraternity of sorority. I barely notice that there is greek life except for the parties.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great. There is a bunch of new student housing apartment complex's that have opened up in the last few years and they like to keep things up to date. It was really easy to look around. But shopping can be a bit of an issue and the further south you go the further away from public transportation you get.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is alright. I've been to a couple of italian places that were really nice. There's a lot of ethnic food. But the reason I say it's only ok is because of the cost. Cost is number one. And it can be expensive.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's both really cool and really annoying with how lenient the school is with most things. If they hear about it directly, they won't be lenient but that's really hard. But it can get really loud a lot and basically nothing would get done unless you make multiple complaints.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did get the Summit Scholarship for out of staters. But financial aid could definitely be a lot better.

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.
