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.
As an incoming University of Oregon student, I've already fallen in love with this school. The application process was extremely accessible and easy, and I felt like there was a lot more concern for who I was and what I was interested in rather than just my grades and test scores. The campus is absolutely beautiful and well kept. I got a strong sense of community when I toured the campus, there was a lot of activity going on as well as everyone being very friendly. As a journalism major, I'm extremely excited to be attending University of Oregon because of their journalism program/college. My campus tour guide was a journalism major and the way she described the program sounded like exactly what I was looking for. I'm incredibly grateful to have found my place in Oregon and look forward to what the future holds for me at this university!
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!
