Linfield College

Linfield College is dedicated exclusively to undergraduate education, and is home to a vibrant community of students. The residential campus is located an hour from Portland, Oregon and an hour from Pacific Ocean beaches, and offers a rich liberal arts and sciences curriculum. Linfield is a friendly community where professors know their students' names and help them develop critical thinking and communication skills while preparing them for successful careers. Linfield has been ranked the top college in Oregon for job placement after graduation. The student-faculty ratio of 11:1 allows for an experiential education that includes collaborative research, creative projects, internships, community service and study abroad. Half of all graduates have studied outside the U.S. and the college pays the airfare for every student's first study abroad experience. The school offers 47 majors and enrolls more than 2,200 students through three programs: a residential liberal arts and sciences program in McMinnville, Oregon; the Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing in Portland, Oregon; and Online and Continuing Education supporting students across the globe. Linfield has been nationally praised for combining affordability and excellence. Established in 1858, Linfield is one of the first colleges in the Pacific Northwest. Linfield welcomes students from diverse backgrounds. Last year, about one third of the students were Americans of color. The Multicultural Office and other programs provide support and 57 student organizations (including the Hawaiian Club, International Club and Latinos Adelante), offer opportunities to engage and learn. The college offers many ways to stay active. Students perform in the visual and performing arts, volunteer for community service, and join one or more of 19 varsity athletic teams. The Wildcat football team has the longest winning streak of any college football team in the country, 61 consecutive winning seasons. The men's baseball team won the NCAA Division III championship in 2013, and the women's softball team won National Championships in 2007 and 2011.
