Pretty impressive list of entertainers that come here, big name concerts to garage bands, plus indie films and art exhibits. The McKenzie and Willamette Rivers are well protected and provide stunning views and lots of recreation. Impressive vineyards and breweries, lots of farm to table dining. One hour to the coast or mountains, not much further to the desert. Northwest paradise!

Eugene is an awesome mid sized city. It's a great place if you're a foodie as there is a nice variety of ethnic foods, many family owned restaurants, and healthy vegan or gf options. Being an eco conscious (obsessed) city means the food is local, sustainable and organic when possible. There's an excellent array of markets as well, no plastic bags. Bring your own! Public transportation is top notch and will get you anywhere.
Eugene is a wonderful town, full of diversity and potential. There are many students here and they are all very friendly and inspirational towards the future. The downtown area is nice as well, and there are many natural places to visit to go hiking when you need to go outdoors and explore the world. It is a very inspirational town as there is a lot of diversity in the people that live here, the community driven things that happen, and the local history as well. Overall Eugene is a wonderful place to live or go to school in!
