Oregon Private College Week

You are invited to come ask questions and discover why an Oregon private college is right for you during Oregon Private College Week (OPCW)! Sessions are held concurrently on 12 campuses statewide.

July 29 – August 2, 2024

9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. & 2 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

While visiting Linfield University, students and guests will attend an informational session covering topics such as areas of study, clubs and activities, research and internship opportunities, scholarships, and the financial aid process. Admission counselors will address common myths about the cost of a private college education and answer questions about Linfield and the college search process in general.

Group visits

We offer school- and organization-led group visits for high school-aged students and older. We can accommodate up to 30 students and require one adult chaperone for every 10 students. A group visit provides you and your students an opportunity to explore the benefits of a Linfield education and experience our beautiful campus. We are able to schedule a student or admission counselor-led campus tour and presentation with an admission counselor.

To request a group visit, please email or call 503-883-2213 with at least two weeks' notice. Due to visit and staffing limitations, we may not be able to fulfill all requests.
