Has anyone done a study abroad program through IES rather than through UP? I'm thinking about doing the one in London, and was wondering if anyone had any information or insight about this program, or about going through IES in general. Thanks!

Hey all,
My name is Alyssa and I live in a little town in Southwest Montana.  I will be attending the University of Portland, come August. I am really excited, but extremely nervous since I do not know  anyone on campus.  Although I am excited about that, I figure it might be a good idea for me to get to know a few people before moving day...
If you have any supportive or interesting remarks, I'd love to read them.  Thanks much!

I'll be moving to Portland in January from Louisiana, and I'm currently checking out the universities in, and around, the general area of Portland. I intend to study Pre-Veterinary medicine. Any of you guys currently doing this? If so, any advice, pointers, complaints, etc. you could offer would be much appreciated. My situation is a bit different though because I will not be an entering freshmen (I'll be graduating with an English degree in December), so that's a whole different set of issues I must deal with.

Thanks in advance!

I'm putting together my schedule for next semester, and I was wondering if anyone could give me any feedback about any of these profs. Thanks!

Theology 101:
Deming (i've heard "avoid the D's for theology...")
LaBarre
Hosinski
Butkus
Gray
Byer

I'm trying to decide between Modern Western Civ and Medieval Europe for history, so does anyone know anything about Wolf or Els? Wolf got terrible reviews on ratemyprofessors.com, so I'm a bit wary, but if anyone knows anything about them, that would be great.

Also, anyone know anything about Psychology 101? I've got it down for plan B, in case one of my first choice classes doesn't work. Profs are Krause, Baillet, Guest, and Royce.

Finally, how hard is it for a freshman to get into photography or ceramics? I've heard they fill up really fast, and I just want a fairly easy once-a-week class, and those would be my top two picks. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help in advance! Oh, and if there's any high school seniors poking around here, I'm more than happy to give advice on the profs I had first semester for core classes.

Hi! I am currently a resident in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am looking for a move and am considering Oregon. I have 34 credits left to obtain my BA at the Uniersity of Tulsa that I would like to transfer to an Oregon school. Not totally sure which one yet (OSU/SOU/WOU)-- my major is in English Lit with a minor in Religion.

Any advice? + or - comments to sway my decision of where to go?

I am interested in location as well. I want to be close to the coast and enjoy a fresh liberal environment.

All comments welcome and thanks in advance for helping me with this huge decision!

I never thought I'd say this, but I enjoy going to school. College is a lot different than what I expected it to be. It's great. I really like all my professors so far, along with the content of each class. I can't complain about a thing.

I just have to add though that I love the boys at school. I mean, they're cute and smart! It's one thing to get by on looks, but to see that a guy actually has some intelligence is amazing. I'm starting to appreciate the fact that it's a private school more and more :)
