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!
Review Linfield College
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".
Academic wise, this college is amazing. I am a biology major and love all of my biology professors and love the small class sizes. However, campus life, at least for me, is very depressing. I am not from Oregon and it rains 80% of the time and that to me is very sad. I miss the sun so much when I am here. This is also a very small college campus which makes it feel like a high school. The gossip that is spread here is very childish. I am planning on transferring in the fall to a larger campus not in Oregon. My experience at Linfield was below average.
