University of Oregon Reviews
Dorms are great. People will always complain about something but they're really fun dorms, and people always look back with fondness. Mine had a 3D printer and kitchen which was super helpful.
Safety I'm mixed about. Generally UO is pretty safe however in the 3 full years I've been here so far there's been a lot of muggings and drug problems with the frats.
ROI: President Schill makes $720,000/year and has only been increasing tuition while slashing grad student benefits, which is sad because they're a backbone of UO. I could've probably gotten the same education in a year doing YouTube videos and Code Academy, but you have to realize that you're paying for an incredible experience for the next 4 years and that time holds unlimited potential.
