We unknowingly came for a campus visit during finals. It ended up being a real view into how gracefully the admin & students handle the pressure cooker of the end of the term/school year. While exploring on our own we were met with welcoming smiles, doors held open, and an overall feeling of good will. The student union was filled with students buried in their laptops and books along with the soothing acoustics of a live classical pianist. There were offerings of massages, animal petting, yoga, aromatherapy and more. While my son felt this was a whole lot of fluff, I have no doubt this atmosphere has positive effects for all, even those who do not directly participate. The information session was well done with an admission rep who is great at working a crowd. The guided tour was fun and we even had another family from a nearby town to us from Pennsylvania. Small world! I would love to see my son attend the UOregon.

I think that this university if AMAZING! I am so glad I committed to such a wonderful college with great diversity, student life, and academics. The professors here really care about your college experience, and the counselors are extremely open to helping you out when you are struggling with your classes/major/whatever it may be. If there was something that I could recommend that we add to our campus it would be to maybe remodel the interior of the Knight library, because it's definitely starting to fall apart. All of the carpets and chairs are getting really old and grungy, and I think that having a prettier interior would attract many more students to study in the library!
The University of Oregon is a gorgeous campus filled with history and unique architecture. The nature scene is also very stunning- vast trees, sociable squirrels, and the occasional turkey, yet is also a short walk from downtown Eugene. Overall, I really like being a student here. As for staff, I have met amazing and humble professors and strict, unforgiving ones as well. The student atmosphere is very lively and theres always a club or organization to join or an event to attend. The street fairs twice a year is my favorite part because of the various types of yummy street food students get to enjoy right here on campus. It's an experience worth having, that's for sure.
