Alisha Engen - 10/6/2014
Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2016
"The psychology program has been moved to revamp their building and that has made it a little more difficult to go in and see advisors but other than that the program runs very well."

"I had a mixed time at the U of O. Some of my classes were great, others not so much. My major advisor was not helpful and displayed some disdain for the fact that I was working while in college. In general not an air of respect for the students among the faculty."

"The University of Oregon was an great place to learn and gain valuable life experience. There are excellent career counseling resources available, which I found extremely useful throughout my internships. I found it very valuable to pursue internships outside of my field to accrue new interests and find out what I was good at. I would advise future students at the UO and otherwise to try things that are outside their comfort zone, because that is when you discover new interests. For example, I would not have known that I have a flare for marketing if I had not taken an internship which included a lot of online marketing. As for my degree, it is very useful for careers in translation and research, which is why I originally began the major. However, what happens when you graduate and decide that you would like a career in a broader field? It is more difficult to apply the degree to a job in your field however, like everything else, your presentation of yourself is most important. Learn to market yourself in a way that allows you to wear many hats in an organization/company. For this reason the choice of your major is important, but it is not the end all be all of career choice. College is all about finding your passion, and I think education is important to find it. Find yours at University of Oregon, where you have thousands of opportunities available to you."

Erica Lambright - 8/7/2014
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Oregon is a great school for those pursuing the liberal arts. The English program is easy to understand, and the professors are great. The community surrounding the UO is very liberal, the school itself has a sort of "hippy" vibe. It's relaxed, except when it comes to the sports - the fans of the Ducks can be intense."

"Tell us about your college experience.Attending the University of Oregon was by far one of the best choices I have made in my life. The campus atmosphere is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't feel like I was swimming in a sea of students. The college experience, such as attending football or basketball games, was amazing. I was able to get involved immediately on campus through Greek Life and our Student Association. Academics at UO were challenging; however, there were a wide variety of courses that one could seek. As a student of color, I was apprehensive about the environment; however, the staff could not have been more engaging and assisting. Everyone who wanted to find a place at UO was able to find a place."
