Anyone live in Eugene or Portland, Oregon?

How is the economy in Eugene and in Portland? We are trying to move to Oregon and I need a University around that offers speech pathology so I need a feel for both places. Any information you could give me?

  • I have lived in both this year. Your best bet is Portland. There are a lot of subarbs that are pretty neat and not too pricy. The university is great, I actually went and talked to the head of their speech pathology department and she was super nice [not sure if shes still there though]. Portland also has more job opportunities.

    Eugene right now is pretty dead!

  • I live in Portland. I could give you the names of the universities in town- Portland State University and University of Portland. Down in Eugene is U of O. This is my hometown, moved away a couple of times and made our way back because our family is here. It is getting bigger, so many people moving here. Economy is just as average as anywhere else.

  • The economy is not good in Portland. I know people that have been out of work for 1 to 2 years in various professions.
