My experience so far has been very enjoyable! The campus is very beautiful and filled with kind people willing to make new friends. My professors are very knowledgeable in their respective fields and are likely to answer any question you may have. Living in the dorms is a very fun experience because of how many people you meet and live with. The dining halls have a nice variety of food and i have not gotten sick of the food here yet. The only negative I have experienced is that coming from a large city, Eugene is very small compared to what i'm used to. There is not much to do surrounding the campus . There are free bus routes students can take to the mall to catch a movie or shop around. Overall my experience here has been extremely positive and I could honestly recommend it to anyone. Make sure you like rain !

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!
