Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I wish I knew what each major was offered and entailed when committing to this school. I love it but the major I want does not exist at this school. My favorite professor was Owen Cooney but he moved away. Eugene has great public transportation and as long as you have your school ID students ride for free. The atmosphere and commodity of the campus and people made me fall in love with this school, even though they don't have the major I want I can not see myself anywhere else. I identify myself as a duck and being a student at the UO, it is a part of me and always will be. I have so much pride to say I go to school there..

University of Oregon is a great school located in a great city. U of O benefits greatly from being in Eugene as Eugene is the perfect college town. Also, classes are generally pretty manageable in terms of size and teachers are very friendly and willing to help.
