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!
It had its ups and downs, but overall it was a great experience. It's so nice living on campus because the proximity to classes, but you are living pretty much where all the events are being held. You have a different vibe, it is home so you feel safe, which is good! Also living with people is always hard, but imagine living with people whom you do not know at all or are completely different from you, this is why it's always weird first year, because you're getting to know people while you get to know more about yourself. The social atmosphere is always good, you're mostly never alone. In the dorms, it might get annoying when your dormmates are loud or when you and your roomate do not get along.

SCODUCKS! This is a top tier institution when it comes to athletics. We are nicknamed "Tracktown of USA" due to our quality and constantly updated facilities and resources. The two founders of Nike Inc. are University of Oregon alumni and Nike continues to donate to our school every year to support where they received their education and inspiration from. Most games are included in school fees and they market them well so everyone knows when they are occurring. Students, family, and THE TOWN show up to duck games - school spirit is always on high.
