Everyone there is extremely inviting and helpful. You feel very welcome and the professors are outstanding! As an undergraduate you can do research, find leadership roles, and easily get involved with things around campus. The dorms are nice and so is the campus in general. It is very quiet, there isn't a lot to do, especially in the evenings. There could be more activity, and there should be more food options. Other than that, I have loved everything. The academics are perfect.

Beautiful campus, wonderful faculty and staff, friendly students. We have an amazing football with 64 consecutive winning seasons and an incredibly diverse campus. Also offer great research opportunities in STEM fields and lots of clubs and opportunities to be involved across campus. And did I mention the beautiful campus? I love it here!
Going to a small college with a small student population was hard to adjust to after coming from such a large high school, but Linfield had been an amazing experience after getting through the first year. The dynamics of having a small student population is strange at first, but it allows you to get closer to so many different people. Linfield's small student to professor ratio has given me so many connections, career opportunities and experiences that I wouldn't have come across otherwise. I had such a personal relationship with all my professors. Learning was that much more interesting when lectures were more like conversations with a small class.
