"I started out as an English Major at the U of O, but it really wasn't for me. The staff was plenty knowledgeable and excited about the material, but I found I lacked interest. At that point I wanted to branch out so I took a class on the Iraq War (I am an OIF veteran) because I wanted to see how the class was taught and received by the students. It was an incredible experience. The class was taught in a strictly matter of fact way, all claims were supported by text, historical evidence, interviews, etc. The class had been taught since the early parts of the war and had evolved every term to incorporate current events. At that point I was hooked and switched my major to History, best decision I ever made. Two classes I think every UO student should take would be Hist 457 (Civil War) and Hist 410 (Iraq War), as they provide so much insight. Overall, i thoroughly enjoyed my experience at UO and would recommend it to anyone. But, if you do attend UO, live off campus housing, my only bad experience was with the housing authority."

"Oregon was perfect for me, even coming from Louisiana. It's a beautiful campus with an incredible and diverse student body. Professors are consistently strong and qualified, and the degree was quite sufficiently challenging. The school opened my eyes to several other interests which I still enjoy years later, such as theatre and women's studies. Exactly what I'd hoped for from a liberal arts university."

"The University of Oregon was a very welcoming school with a lot of opportunities to expand upon your schoolwork on the form of extracurriculars and school-wide talks. I enjoyed being a part of Ethos Magazine and Unbound Magazine to get more experience with critiquing articles and learning how a publication works behind the scenes. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Theatre Department and being able to participate in their productions through Costume Design and Dramaturgy."

"Being at the University of Oregon was an experience that will have an impact on the rest of my life. The connections I made while I was there have carried into my life, long after I graduated. The alumni network is so strong and walking anywhere where you see an 'O' provides a potential new connection. Waking up on Saturday morning and making the walk to Autzen Stadium is something that must be experienced in person, to really feel the passion that the entire STATE has for the school and the beloved Ducks. Go Ducks."

"The University of Oregon's Master's Program thoroughly prepared me for a career in Education. I was able to quickly and easily find a job with my qualifications and I was more primed for the role than my peers who attended similar programs."

"UO was great for me because it allowed me to be flexible on what I learned. However if I had taken more time before going to college I think I would have had a more fulfilling experience. Take a gap year of you can afford it."

"At first I didn't think going to a really small business school was going to be worth my time. I was horribly wrong. Being part of a small business school like Oregon's you have unprecedented access to alumni that work through out the United States. On top of that there are quarterly trips for experiential learning that many other business schools can take you on. It may not seem like much but those experiential learning trips made the MBA program worth while. You get the education like any other business school, but you also get hands on experience meeting with alumni in the network."

"They had a great psychology department. Staff were knowledgeable and did a lot of research on campus. The department was a little older. The newer focus was on Journalism and Business."

"Oregon is a wonderfully friendly campus with a great staff. High quality learning and academics are available as well as great entertainment and activities, so be sure to balance your time. Academics get overshadowed by athletics in the media, but not on campus itself. Eugene is a great little town, not too big or too small."

"I am in the first of two summers in a 5 quarter long Masters in Education program. So Far the pros are that the staff is highly informed about the education process and areas of discipline, the program is nationally recognized as one of the top education programs in a state that has some of the most rigorous standards for teachers in public schools. Some of the cons are that they don't have congruency between the financial aid department and what costs will actually look like compared to the "average" graduate student."

"The graduate program of Journalism is an excellent masters to seek. The program has excellent instructors and resources to educate their students. The school of Journalism at the UofO is a renowned program. I am challenged and honored to be a student here. The major downfall is that there is only one scholarship to apply for in the entire program and miniscule financial aid."
