For an offensively priced college, the on-campus housing is unlivable. Instead of being lectured and taught traditionally, you must rely heavily on your textbooks. Speaking of textbooks, do not buy from the bookstore, even though they promise you won't find cheaper prices. You will. Amazon rentals. They put a lot of pressure for you to be involved in Linfield community activities and clubs, and make you feel like you aren't doing something right or it is frowned upon to not overindulge with extracurricular activities. That said, the professors really do care about you and want you to do well, they are very friendly and helpful during office hours. The campus itself is quaint and beautiful.

Linfield has been wonderful so far, and I've only been here for two months. The professors are so personable and caring, all of mine already know my name. They encourage always visiting at office hours, or emailing if we have any questions at all. All of my classmates are friendly and easy to get along with. Linfield attracts students who are hard workers, involved, and motivated. These are the kind of students who build off of each other's successes. All of the professors have their terminal degrees, and are currently doing their own projects alongside of sharing all their findings with their students.
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.
