Explore our program first-hand - visit us in beautiful Eugene, Oregon.
Sit in on a class. Experience what a CRES class is like. Get a feel for the classroom dynamics and course material. Just remember to check with us before you schedule, to ensure you will be visiting when courses are in session.
Meet our students. Students can be great sources for unfiltered opinions about a program. Ask them anything: what they like and don't like, their opinion of/or relationship with the faculty, if they’d recommend the program, about their student experience, and about career preparation and outcomes. Don’t forget to also ask them about life outside the program (e.g. cost of living, recreational activities, wonderful eateries, etc.).
Talk with faculty. Learn more about the program and curriculum from their perspective. Do some prep work beforehand, paying attention to the faculty's academic background, research, and experience.
