The campus isn't what I would call gorgeous and I really expected more given how pretty Oregon is. It's just buildings on streets over several city blocks. Hayward Field is spectacular although it was under construction with a huge tent in the middle when I was there so I didn't get to see as much as I wanted.

I was taken aback by some of the really strange negative reviews. Folks, this is a university. The campus is beautiful and green and has some lovely old buildings. It's a nice place to walk around and soak in the atmosphere. There is a large pioneer cemetery adjacent with interesting old headstones. I happen to be an alumna of UO... More

I am an Alumni, graduated almost 20 years ago. Still love to visit for sports events or concerts. A lot has changed over the years but still has a small campus feel. Absolutely gorgeous campus, that is why Animal House was filmed here because ti looks like an Ivy League school.

Loved it...nothing to dislike. The university is 100% geared toward a college experience. Matthew Knight Arena and Autzen Stadium are state of the art

The only drawback is Eugene which while trying to open inviting and inclusive gives cover to the aberrant addicts and unfortunates who then have have developed advocacy groups. This great beautiful university is threatened by Eugene which cannot decide if it wishes to be trendy or a haven for the aberrant like a small inner city Detroit Michigan

We wish that we could go back to college after having dropped our son off at the Clark Honors College and his new residence, the Global Scholars Hall !

The food or cafe around the campus are just OK. Notable will be the Wild Ducks, which has good service and good Salmon Steak.

Exploring this campus is great fun! The softball field is impeccably kept and beautiful and the history in the adjacent Pioneer Cemetery is very interesting. Some of the summer construction should be done soon making it easier to get around but overall, it is a great campus!
