    University of Oregon is THE choice if you’re looking at education majors. I’ve wanted to be a special education teacher since I was a little girl. I’m in awe of how the UO itself provides for its students with physical or learning disabilities, including adaptive PE, personal assistants etc. They walk the walk in their dedication to educating EVERY student. The courses are interesting and challenging. The professors are encouraging and inspiring. HEDCO is a beautiful building where education majors can be a part of their community, to study, socialize, and get hands on experience in their fields. I made the move from Montana to join this top ranked program and everyday I’m thankful to be here! Here I have found my new home where all my dreams can come true.

    The University of Oregon is a great school with ample funding, highly qualified staff, a great student body, and many clubs and extracurriculars to choose from. It is located in a small yet lovely town with lots of outdoor activities, beautiful hikes, and good dining spots to choose from. Students tend to feel supported by their mentors and peers. One drawback is that a majority of the funding goes toward athletics and STEM, so the great little humanities and arts programs are often left without sufficient funding. Expect a robust party scene, with loud nights on campus when the weather gets nicer. The best way to take advantage of the UO's resources is by getting involved, so put yourself out there!
    Coming from a place like South Dakota, Oregon was a huge change. What captivated me the most was the laid-back, easygoing attitudes of West Coast natives. Compared to South Dakotans, they were more accepting, easy to approach, and just overall enjoyable people. In addition, the campus is beautiful and lively with flora and wildlife--most notably, ducks! However, the price tag, along with the self-interested, acquisitive behavior displayed by much the administration tarnishes the great image of the UO.
