    Global education is huge. Any continent, any language, any city you can dream of with just about any major for us to study abroad. They don't even pad the bill but like a $50 fee. You get the academic credits for the term and the experience of living home stay or an international university dorm. You can also apply for internships or service/volunteering for credit in other countries. UO wants all their students to participate in bringing culture to our school, so they make it streamlined with support at each step. It looks strong on the resume too. The best decision I ever made!

    We have an absolutely gorgeous campus all year long. Four true seasons of colorful changes, seems like we just had 12" of snow and now it's 85 degrees! There is so much going on in Eugene and on campus at any given time. The dining choices are much better than you would expect at college, they focus on local and sustainable plus it's delicious. Our facilities are top notch especially the rec center with any kind of workout or class you would want. You can get a credit for anything from yoga to wilderness survival because holistic health is a priority here.
    I'm very appreciative of the housing dept and how much they helped me personally. I got into a bad situation, they took my concerns seriously and worked with me quickly and discreetly to resolve it. They care about their students well being and it shows through every office I've dealt with. On a fun note the options for on or off campus housing are plentiful. And the dining choices are amazing, creative and fresh. Our academic and extra curricular facilities are mind blowing, I can't imagine any better!
