No regrets

Loved the environment and classes. The only problem was my advisor(s). It wasn't until my senior year that I actually had an advisor that really looked at my class schedule and offered advice.

Describe the students at your school.

Most students are laid back at UO. There is no reason to dress up for class because most people either wear athletic clothes or duck gear. There is a group for everyone to join for different experiences and interests.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Don't let past academic failures or experiences determine your future. Your actions today determine the future, not your past. During high school, i feared what the future held for me. I had no idea what college I was going to attend or what I even wanted to do. I continually let my future become a prisoner of my past academic experiences. Now I know that my actions today are the greatest determinant of my future.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The UO is somewhere change and discovery happens as much as higher learning.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You won't see some of these people ever again, so connect with the ones who matter to you and keep them in your circle, or they will become just someone you were friends with in high school. You're going to become completely distracted by college life and your studies, so it will be very easy to stay on campus with your friends who are there with you. At the same time, be open to meeting new people. They will have new perspectives to share with you, and it will be refreshing to meet people who think the same way you do. Most of all, have a blast!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is often joked about as "Nike University" because Nike sponsors the athletics and they have nicer facilities than the regular students have for learning.

Elisabeth

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There are very few things I consider as negative at the University of Oregon. I feel there are many opportunities for students to get involved in the community, an area that will help in their career pursuit, and outdoor extracurriculars.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You do not need to be friends with everyone; just a few are great. The things you learned in cheerleading--that more friends are better--forget all that. There are those that help keep you from being bored, but they don’t truly make you into a better version of yourself. There will be a moment in your freshman year, when the majority of your co-ed house goes to a bonfire, and you spend the entire time trying to be a part of a “huddle for warmth” with your “friends” Vanessa, Michelle, and Heather. You’ll later realize you could have been studying chemistry with Patricia, bonding over your recently developed weird obsession with Le Chatlier’s Principle from Dr. Herrick’s Inorganic Chemistry class. Patricia, like your physiology friends, will always be there. You’ll learn this, and you’ll do your best to ignore it to fit in with the crowd, but don’t. Only four will remain to provide comfort when you don’t do as well as you wanted on your Tissue Injury and Repair oral exam. That’s okay. They rejuvenate you and you’ll know it. Focus on the friends that matter.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to high school self, I would say to enjoy school. A lot of people like to think that you become a completley different person, and in a sense you do, but its because you are becoming aware of who you as an individual are. In everything you do you have to prioritize, its okay to have fun, just make sure you get your work done. College is fun, it is an experience you will never forget. Do not be scared to talk to your professors, they want you to succeed. In a way college is the same as highschool the only difference is you are paying for it, so there is no room to fail any classes.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The lack of lights around campus at night is the worst thing about this school. In the fall, it gets dark early, so when you are walking to your classes or to library it does not feel safe.
