Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
Hey what up, I'm a Junior at U of O from Portland. Last year I skied mt. Hood Meadows and mt. Bachelor, one or the other every weekend in the winter. Willamette Pass is a small family owned resort about 50 min to the parking lot from Eugene. Good place to go if your super hung over and couldn get the energy to trek to Bach or meadows for the weekend. Bachelor is about three or so hours from Eugene, real easy to go there for the weekend if you have friends who got a place in Sun River, Bend or Black Butte. Meadows is cool cause it is an hour from Portland so its easy to go back and forth every day, expensive tho....gas. Eugene is a college town I would say. Good bar scene fun people everywhere you go, really good athletics, sick facilities all over. Good business school, very good sports marketing program (one of the best in the country). Corvallis is way more of a college town in reference to greek life. Bigger and better at OSU as far as the greek life is considered. In state you need a 3.2... 3.5 maybe for automatic acceptance. I say go to U of O we need more newschoolers! Also, if you like rivalries we got a real good one... Im basking in my glory with a nice 65-38 victory over the beaves yesterday :) GO DUCKS
