The university of Oregon was my dream schoolBrightArt & Design Department
The university of Oregon was my dream school however throughout my years attending I have found my self very disappointed. The school fails to provide adequate professors. The school also fails to provide available parking to students. While other university are beautifully established, Oregon is plopped in the center of Eugene with no organization. Campus rape and sexual assault is high on campus. Students tend to be very aggressive. I had a rock thrown at me my junior year by a group of girls who got because I crossed the road. Females dress extremely slutty with

breasts, parts of their butts showing and pubic hair sticking out. I believe this is a very poor representation of the university. The amount of drug use and alcohol consumed is very high. I would not recommend the university of Oregon to anyone that wishes to have a decent college career.

ALL the red tape every single term thatPsychology
ALL the red tape every single term that screws you over with the registrar (lack of preparation for influx of students), ignoring quality of academic life in favor of athletic centers, exploiting hard working students for free advertising, finagling to get the most money out of each student by creating more and more expensive fiery hoops and red tape to jump through every year, and their reputation for blaming the (rape) victim, are all solid reasons not to attend. That's my advice.

This school is for the open-minded, green-oriented, andAverageArchitecture
This school is for the open-minded, green-oriented, and down to earth. Being in the Architecture Dept., I cant really say I completely agree with their school of thought, but is still a GREAT program. EVERYONE (and their mothers) here is a huge Ducks athletic fan; football games at Autzen Stadium are a full weekend event(fri, sat, sun). Students are VERY involved here at U of O. Even though Eugene is a small town, there is never a dull moment. The location is actually ideal. BEAUTIFUL campus and very well kept, everything is so green!!! Girls here are VERY attractive. Greek life is a major part of my college life, but it DOES NOT dominate the social scene like other schools I've seen (I am from SoCal..). Students here really know how to have fun, yet everyone is VERY focused on their academics (basically, you work super hard during the week, then have THE MOST EPIC weekends of your life). This WAS NOT my top choice (UVA was, but whatever), but I ended up loving it. Have 2 friends from San Diego up here, and QUICKLY met many others. Overall, I recommend Oregon. Love my Phi Delts!!!!
