University of Oregon Reviews
Review University of Oregon
I graduated from University of Oregon with my degree in Human Physiology and I absolutely loved my program! The university campus is gorgeous and easy to navigate and there are tons of free services for students, including food and tutoring. Since my program focused on health and athletics, our department was well-funded. However, the flip side to going to a school that Nike sponsors is that there is a lot of money being poured into programs that don't necessarily meet the needs of the community. The price of books, supplies, classes, etc. are equivalent to private schools. Even tickets to football games for students range from $300-7,000 per seat. During my time at the university we had two strikes (teachers and graduate students) because they haven't increased wages or changed contracts in 10 years. I value my education and my program but the Univserity focuses on making money more than expanding academic programs.
I enjoyed my time at the University of Oregon. I was also fortunate to play Division I athletics while I was there as well. The campus combines both classic brick architecture along with the modern-sleek that the is synonymous with the varsity athletics, particularly football. The city of Eugene is a small-town, yet the school spirit gives the university a 'big' school feel. In addition to athletics, the professors are very knowledgeable in their respective fields as the University of Oregon is well-known for its scientific research. If I were able to attend graduate school at UO, I would moved back to Eugene in a heartbeat!
It had its ups and downs, but overall it was a great experience. It's so nice living on campus because the proximity to classes, but you are living pretty much where all the events are being held. You have a different vibe, it is home so you feel safe, which is good! Also living with people is always hard, but imagine living with people whom you do not know at all or are completely different from you, this is why it's always weird first year, because you're getting to know people while you get to know more about yourself. The social atmosphere is always good, you're mostly never alone. In the dorms, it might get annoying when your dormmates are loud or when you and your roomate do not get along.
