I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Linfield College. I have joined the Theta Alpha chapter of Alpha Phi and I have had fantastic experiences with my sisters. My professors are wonderful and are always wanting me to succeed, as long as my other peers. I have made many friends who are just as hard working as I am. I love Linfield and I cannot wait to go up to the Portland campus next fall to finish my last two years in nursing school!
One of the things that Really love about Linfield is that, it is a small campus and you can actually connect with professors in all departments, not just your own. Class sizes are relatively small and professors make an effort to get to know the students. The campus atmosphere while a quite and calm for most of the time it is amazing and you are able to meet people and get to know others. Overall Linfield creates a great small college experience.
I have had a mixed experience at Linfield College. I found the professors and classes wonderful. They truly do care about you succeeding academically. However, I found the campus life hard to fit in. I came from out of state and a lot of students were from Oregon and Washington and would go home often on weekends. The school is very cliquey which usually happens the first couple weeks of the first semester. The town itself is very small and you need a car to get around. If you don't have one then you'll have to resort to walking everywhere or finding a friend with a car. There's no reliable public transportation either. The food itself is less than desirable, it's usually the same thing and often times under or overcooked.
