Doesn't feel like college to me, feels like a private high school in the middle of nowhere. There's cliques of students by majors and not a lot of mingling. There is no community feeling even though it's a small campus. The athletic scholarship students are pretty much into themselves and only came because they couldn't play at a higher division. There is absolutely nothing to do in McMinnville. With traffic we're over 1.5 hours from Portland so you can't even easily get there on a Friday night. I struggled to finish my frosh year and transferred out.
Review Linfield College
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!
This is small private school, which I like. Everyone knows each other. Class sizes are small, which is nice because you are able to have closer relationships with your professor. Some professors, however, can be close-minded and don't offer a good learning environment. Overall, my experience here has been good and I'd recommend to people that don't want to go to a huge school but still want that college "feel".
