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!

Good nurses program but I feel like most resources go to that. The student population is declining and that means tuition increases for all. The other majors seem very limited in resources due to small size. Huge emphasis on sports here, think 8 students out of 10-12 in every class are at Linfield so their parents can watch them play for collegiate sports. Most barely made it out of high school and weren't prepared for collegiate academics.
It's an okay college. I, like most all the others, came to Linfield cuz I could play sports at about the same level as like high school. I did transfer out after sophomore year after team burn out and realizing I need to get serious about classes. I definitely didn't get challenged in my classes it was always the professor focus on the struggling students which is boring when the classes are so small. It's a very small campus and small town. Boredom is a problem and bad food options.
