I loved that I could have a one-on-one relationship with your professor as well as get to know most of the student body. What I loved about Linfield specifically is the community atmosphere that campus has to offer. There are so many on campus events and activities that Linfield really does feel like its own little city. It quickly turned into my “home away from home”.

Linfield College is also a place where your passion can shine through. There is something for everyone here on campus whether it be a sports team, a club, Greek life, a job, or even your dorm room hall, the ability to spend your four years on campus doing something you love comes very easy here at Linfield.
