Travel Update: Oregon Colleges

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

The first college we visited on our road trip through Oregon was University of Oregon. We toured around the campus while it was pooring rain outside in Eugene, Oregon. We met up with Maddy, a first year student of University of Oregon,  showed us around her dorm. I really enjoyed it and was able to get a very good feeling of the school. I enjoyed it a lot. After looking around we checked out downtown Eugene, which had an amazing farmers/ craft fair going on which spanned over about three blocks. It was full of all kinds of characters and talents. I really enjoyed it, even though I was being rained on the whole time.

After Eugene we headed up to Salem Oregon to check out the tiny, but beyond amazing liberal arts school of Willamette. This campus is beautiful! I just wish I had been able to see it when it was full of students. The buildings were gorgeous brick and were so interesting and old fashion.

One of my favorite things were the white lawn chairs spread out around campus. We visited an amazing library which had an overlook of the Willamette River.

The whole school had a feeling of tranquil genius :D. I look forward to learning more about this school.

We then headed up all the way to Portland for a quick stop at Lewis and Clark University. This school was so nice and quaint. I really enjoyed it. We didn’t get to look around that much because we were so tired, but what I did see was beautiful.

Tomorrow we will be visiting Reed in Portland and from there on out we are winging it!


Travel Update: Oregon

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

So for the first part of my spring break I am going to be heading up to Portland Oregon for some college visits. My mom and I are road trippin it up and we are going to be having fun along the way.

Top on my list is Reed. I can’t wait to see it, Reed is one of my top choices at this point and I am ready to learn more.

I will also be stopping along the way in Eugene Oregon to stop and see University of Oregon. There is no saying what else I will do, or what I will see. Stay tuned for photos and posts about my trip.
