"The University of Oregon is an excellent school. I received a BA in Journalism from the School of Journalism and Communications. Their instructors were current and very knowledgeable of the field. They provided many opportunities for internships and hands-on learning. For example, I was a contributor to Flux Magazine which is a student run publication. They allowed me to really dig into the article content, which I worked on for nearly three months. The result was an truly immersive experience of what I could expect as a journalism professional. I highly recommend anyone to consider a BA in Journalism from the University of Oregon"

"The University of Oregon's educational foundations major is a cohort style which helps students learn together throughout the program and share their experiences. The professors are passionate and educated in their fields and provide a solid example for the type of teacher they wish for you to become. They utilize a social justice framework which is important for how diverse schools are becoming. The downside to this program is that it doesn't give you a license so without a master's degree you are not a licensed teacher and will not be able to be a head teacher in a classroom with this degree. The University of Oregon has also become very expensive in tuition and raises each year make the financial burden heavy."

"At the time I attended the UofO Business School, there was an effort to reduce the class sizes because the program was very popular. Consequently, grading was a bit tough. But, the professors were good and they helped prepare us for our careers and in my case, the CPA exam and a career in financial management as well as general business management."

"I attended the University of Oregon for my Bachelor of Science degree in psychology. I really enjoyed the school and felt it was a perfect fit for me. The campus is absolutely beautiful and well kept. All buildings were within walking distance and easily accessible. The library was exceptionally large with more than enough computers and study rooms for people to rent out and use. I really enjoyed the instructors at the University as well. In the Psychology department more specifically, the instructors were passionate and engaged with their students. The city itself was quant and enjoyable. It was easy to get around and everything was either within walking distance, or a short bus ride away. The only issues I can recall at this point were having to physically wait in line for football tickets which I was unable to do due to work, although that process has since changed. I also did not feel fully supported in finding work post graduation but feel that may not be a unique problem. I would attend the University again if I had to go back. I miss it often and think highly of the University!"

"I had a great time at U of O and enjoyed all of my classes, my direction in life at the time was not well thought out so I did not come out with a very good launch pad towards a career. I think that in general schools should educate their students more on what opportunities are available once you have a degree in a field and this should be done within the first year of college so that students have a better chance of picking the correct career path. In all fairness to the campus I did not use the advisor facilities as much as I probably could have, however they did not reach out it was fully presumed at the time that you would do that. I finished a bit early with exactly the minimum credits to graduate and all of my decisions on what to take were through readying the course book. It was easy to map out what I needed to graduate, what I found though was I could have used some advice on what might be helpful later when pursuing a graduate degree or in direction of career. What can one do with a Geography, environmental studies Bachelor of Science.... kind of thing . Anyways, I would recommend the university the class quality was great, and the campus is great for getting out into the outdoors if you are looking for that. I found that professors varied but as I got further along in my degree the instruction got better as the class size got smaller."

"Human Physiology Department at University of Oregon is remarkable- from the staff, faculty, and fellow students, everyone is vested in helping you succeed and prepare for your future career! I could not have chosen a different field of study to prepare me for graduate studies and for my career."

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014
"I went to the University of Oregon and majored in Family and Human Services. I was originally nervous because I was transferring in from a small private college to large public college. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered into my major because I instantly felt like I was back at my private college. Every professor knew who we were, and our classmates were very bonded together. I also became very invested in the community. I highly suggest FHS at the University of Oregon"

"University of Oregon is very vibrant, diverse, and dynamic. There are so many ways to get involved on campus. The downfall of the school are the large class sizes - there are classes that can have more than 100 students! However, overall the teaching was great, and there were tons of resources available for students."

"The University of Oregon has a place for everyone. Despite it's large, flagship school exterior, the University provides a highly personalized and unique academic and extracurricular experiences. As a Human Physiology major and Art History major, I have glowing reviews. After a brief period attending several other Universities, I was blown away by Oregon's Human Physiology Department resources and hands-on learning opportunities. I had the opportunity to participate in cadaver dissection and many Physiology experiments. The Department also offers countless relevant and creative classes such as Physiology of Exercise; Tissue Injury and Repair; Science of Sleep; Physiology of Obesity and more. Additionally, the Art History department was spectacular. I had professors that continually exceeded my expectations and ended up being the reason I chose to minor in Art History. Beyond academics, the University of Oregon campus is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever visited. The student culture is active, inclusive, and focused on promoting ways of achieving balance and wellness as a busy student."

"University of Oregon is a school that promotes diversity which is something I appreciated having while attending for my undergraduate degree, I feel this truly enriched my undergraduate experience. The school offer a wide array of classes for many varying degrees, and I found the quality of instructors to be far superior than what I would've expected. Additionally I found the ease of using the various online systems to be an added bonus, coming from someone who is not technologically savvy!"
