With a campus along the Willamette River, the University of Oregon is a 4-year public university in Eugene and the flagship campus of the UO System. The UO is home to nine colleges hosting more than 300 degree-granting academic programs. To provide a break from the rigors of college life, the UO campus features an arboretum and the university sponsors outdoor excursions for activities such as hiking and mountain biking. For athletically inclined students, Oregon fields 18 men’s and women’s sports teams known as the Ducks.
So far, I have loved this school since I started. It is extremely welcoming to every type of person and culture, and focuses not just on a social experience, but also having a good academic experience. There are a huge variety of classes, and all of the professors that I have had are very compatible with student's learning abilities and they each have their own technique to make the class fun.

The University of Oregon is not only a beautiful campus but offers the kind of liberal arts studies that I prefer. The excitement of living on campus and attending favored sporting events has contributed to my enjoyment at this school. I look forward to finishing my education at U of O.
