I'm studying Sustainability Design in Architecture, and UnivQuite BrightArchitecture
I'm studying Sustainability Design in Architecture, and University of Oregon is top in the nation. It's very exciting to have Ivy schools watching how your program operates. Alumni are very successful in their careers thanks to the experience and connections you leave with. The field is very big right now with unlimited growth. UO is a great school overall. The professors are engaged; the business offices and health center are all very helpful. Most students are hard working and open minded. It feels like a small school with all the perks of a large school. The food is fantastic and I've never tired of it.

Beautiful green campus with both classic and modernQuite BrightChemistry
Beautiful green campus with both classic and modern architecture. Just walking around with all the friendly students and enjoying the random performing groups is the quintessential college experience. UO has an excellent chemistry program and there are big expansion plans. The professors are bright, engaging and available. Most of my classes have had less than 30 students, there are so many resources to help you succeed. I appreciate the many different study spots around campus and multiple libraries. I just really love the variety of students from all over the world, my advice is be outgoing and strike up conversations. There are always events going on and there are countless clubs to get involved in - pretty much anything you can think of. I'm in an eco hiking group, it's great for clearing the mind and I've actually met amazing faculty through it as well. I've been enriched in many different ways. Thank you UO

This is a TERRIBLE school for the priceQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This is a TERRIBLE school for the price you have to pay. Lower division classes are worse than many I've taken at community colleges. They are mostly taught by GTFs who simply don't care, and many of the instructors can't even speak fluent English. The quality of education here is extremely poor. All of your tuition money goes towards athletics and the football team, not the academic programs.

The student body is mostly made up of kids who were most likely rejected from every other school they applied to. Many of the students here have absolutely no business being in college. The party culture is huge here. Most of the students are just here to get drunk and waste their parent's money, not to study. The kids here are rude, disrespectful, entitled and full of themselves. Recent examples are the fraternity trashing of Lake Shasta and the infamous incident not too long ago, where a mob of students blocked traffic, harassed drivers and dumped snow into their vehicles. You DO NOT want to be associated with these kinds of people.

There is also absolutely nothing to do here. The university offers very few extracurricular activities and most student organizations are very poorly run and organized. The surrounding town of Eugene is full of nothing but hippies and homeless drug addicts. If that weren't bad enough, the constant rain and nine consecutive months of not seeing the sun is sure to drive you into deep depression.Coming to this school has been the biggest mistake of my life...
