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.
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.
Student Activities Board
From guest lectures and film screenings to live music events and game nights, the Student Activities Board (SAB) serves the campus community by creating inclusive events by UO students, for UO students. Our purpose is to promote positive activities and interests by collaborating between our six teams and campus partners.
