3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was selected to live in Bean East and it sucked because it was so small, outdated, and so far away but luckily I lived in a chill hall.

Greek Life: I'm not really familiar with Greek Life overall, but at UO they all just assume that they're such a big deal when they're really not.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are known for the success that our sports teams have had but sometimes we're seen as a sports venue rather than an academic institution.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Support is somewhat good for those who are considered to be low-income, but sometimes forget about the rest of the students who are thrown out of the loop for not being low-income. The campus is great, the student spirit is great, but there's a huge social class disparity that needs to be addressed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe that I would not be in the wonderful position I am now if I had not decided to go to University of Oregon. I am the happiest I have been in my entire life and I believe that I will find a job after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think living in the dorms provides a very unique social experience and I am glad I did it, but the amount of space and quality of our building is very poor.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Going to a school that is so well known for its athletics has some major perks. Not only do we have incredible facilities for athletes our recreation center was recently updated and is beautiful. I also love going to a school that has such strong school spirit, I'm not sure any other school has quite the same football game energy.

Overall Experience: So far I have had a great experience at University of Oregon. I have enjoyed the majority of my classes and I have felt that I am able to do much better academically than I did in high school. We also have so much school spirt here its hard not to fall in love with the ducks and participate in school activities.

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.
