Lane County Residents Outnumber
Other Oregonians Attending U.O.
By Norman Anderson
The rumor that the University
of Oregon is “loaded” with Port
landers is only half true.
Students from Lane County out
number those from Multnomah
County by about 27 per cent. On
the other hand, there are more
students in the University from
Portland high schools than from
high schools in any other part of
the state. (Not so strange, con
sidering that Portland’s population
almost approximates that of the
rest of the state combined.)
Figures for the 1949-50 year, in
a report from Registrar Clifford
E. Constance to the President's
office, show that Lane county con
tributed 2,193 students while Mult
nomah County was second with
1,585. Marion county came in third
with 197 students.
Gilliam county, at the other end
of the scale, staggered up to the
wire with six students in the Uni
versity, a drop of one over the
preceding year when a girl came
down to Eugene with the six boys,
for a total of seven.
Portland high schools contribut
ed 266 scholars to the University
while Eugene high schools came
through with 166.
South Ignores University
In out of state students, the
University was “deluged” with
Californians and Washintonians,
440 of the former and 207 of the
latter. But parts of the South pre
fer to ignore the University com
pletely. The states of Arkansas,
Oklahoma, North Carolina, South
Carolina, and West Virginia sent
no one, while Connecticut colleg
ians apparently felt that other
places could take care of them and
no one came to Oregon.
Only slightly better than these
five states wrere Mississippi. Mary
land, Maine and Georgia which
let one student go West to Oregon
Hawaii Enrolls 45
Hawaii, with 45, and Canada
with 22, led the world in sending
people to Oregon for educations,
but Alaska and China sent fail
samplings. Strangely enough, Mex
ico, closest southern neighbor, sent
no one while Brazil, Colombia, and
Venezuela all managed to send at
least one student north.
In this matter of “home address,”
the figures for Portiana ana Eu
gene vary a good deal. Many older
students call Eugene “home,” even
though giving some place else as
also a residence. So in this cata
gory, Eugeneans have outnumber
ed Portlanders since 1946. Previous
to that time, going back to 1940,
Portland students led students from
all other cities. Looking at it per
centage wise, this shows that stu
dents coming from Eugene have
increased 118 per cent, from Port
land 37 per cent.
California’s Percent Drops
Some people may be interested
in knowing that over a 10 year
period, the number of students
coming from California has drop
ped 5 percent, while Washington’s
has gone up 138 percent.
And as one final note, it should
be told that Vanport contributes
more transfers than does Oregon
State, 133 to 101. Eastern Oregon
College beat out the Ashland edu
cation school 19-18, but was still
tied with the University of Port
land which also sent 19 transfers.
Willamette, however, with 29, sent
down more tansfers than either of
