Community

Community is a feeling of connectedness with others through sharing of common attitudes, interests, and goals. But it doesn’t just happen. It takes time and intention to create strong communities. Not all of our communities look the same and we are part of many different communities. From student organizations to roommates, there is any number of communities for you to be a part of. We are here to help you find the communities and opportunities that fit your interests.

Events

There is always something happening on campus. The UO calendar has a list of the many different events being hosted on campus for any day of the year. Looking for something to do on a Friday afternoon? Or maybe you need to fill that hour gap on Tuesdays. Whenever you are looking to get involved, there is an event waiting for you.

Ducks After Dark

Ducks After Dark is comprised of a group of UO Students dedicated to planning and hosting free movies for UO students every Thursday night, excluding dead and finals weeks. Ducks After Dark events are meant to foster a sense of belonging for you within the university community and to provide a safe, healthy space for you to build relationships and develop as a leader in a socially responsible environment.

UO Advantage

Ever wonder how you are going to land your dream job or network at an event? The real truth is you need an advantage. A way to talk about your world-class education and how you maximized your time at the UofO. You showed up, you participated, and you learned in the process and all of that matters. Well you can track that now with UO Advantage. Show up for the interview or apply for a scholarship with a true UO Advantage.
