There is no single best thing about the UO, instead thousands of good things come together to make the UO what it is. The campus is incredibly beautiful and a walk can be inspirational to even the best procrastinators. The lush campus is nestled right into the bustling city of Eugene. Although its a bustling city, Eugene emits a certain feeling that everything will be alright. Nothing is rushed and everybody is super relaxed. The university has wonderful facilities for students to pass the time, and there are several incredible outdoor opportunities. The beautiful cascade mountains, abundant wilderness, raging rivers, and pristine coast all offer memorable excursions from campus. The university has several student run organizations which make getting involved super easy. There is a student art guild in the EMU offering everything from glass blowing to welding to a complete woodworking shop. The biggest source of complaint is the lousy dorms.
I have actually been engaged by my classes. The feeling of excitement to learn is new to me. My classes have actually turned me onto much more than I ever expected.
Anything goes here at UO. In any given class a dread locked hippy maybe seated next to the most uptight designer sorority girl, and both can be engaged in deep intellectual conversations. About half of the students seem to be from instate, with the others coming from all over the nation, but mostly western states. Students are very politically active and aware, predominantly liberal.
The Best Things
Its so Green!
The Worst Things
The rain itself isn't bad, but when paired with cold its awful.
