I was so shocked when a professor went out of his way to meet with me, and then it happened again and again with other professors. I was told repeatedly in high school that no one will hold your hand in college and I imagined flailing on my own. I had close relationships with my high school teachers and very much feared this would not be the case anymore. My fears quickly subsided in the first few weeks. It helps that my class sizes are actually smaller here than h.s. Of course, it's a more intense level of academics with a lot of expectations on the student. Take advantage of office hours and email your professors. I always get same day responses. Here's a tip: tutoring is free! I've also had a lot of success with the librarians, they are an invaluable resource and always eager to assist.

The University of Oregon is an incredibly open-minded, inclusive, and diverse campus. There are always students protesting, and speaking their minds. Students act out and speak up for what they believe in, nearly everyday. We are a very engaging union of students with the LGBTQ+ community. There are gender-inclusive bathrooms everywhere, and everyone is very conscious of their comments. A super inviting campus!
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 !
