Can someone tell me real information about the University of Oregon? It's in my college choices, and I really don't find college websites to provide completely adequate information. All they give you is numbers and statistics.

I think that's why visiting the colleges and surrounding community are so important, really. It's a pretty crucial step in making such a big decision. Just come here and check it out for yourself. No one can tell you whether you will or will not like something, it's all up to you.

If you are just starting with college, Lane Community College is outstanding in most departments and considered to be one of the best community colleges in the nation. They have excellent transfer programs as well for both U of O and OSU.

The University of Oregon is extremely liberal and more interested in how their sports teams are performing than they are about most of the education standards and general welfare of their students.

However, their Business, Liberal and Language Arts, and Law departments are very good. U of O's Science and Math departments are pretty much on the back burner as far as the U of O administration is concerned. These departments are in buildings that should have been condemned 50 years ago with lab resources that leave a lot to be desired.

If you are looking for a degree in Science, U of O is a theory school and OSU is more of an Applied Science school. The instructors in both school are very good, but OSU has better resources and is much more concerned about student welfare.
