Become a Duck

At the University of Oregon, one size doesn’t fit all. The UO is a community committed to a diverse academic experience. No two applicants for admission hail from precisely the same circumstances or background, and the admissions process reflects that fact. The UO welcomes alternative admission students as well as any others who find they may have to check the "other" box now and then.

Eugene, Oregon

There’s something about Eugene that makes it more than a little special. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel right at home. This place feels familiar, green, and friendly. Walkable, bikeable, skateable. But also modern, totally connected, and vibrant. It’s kind of perfect—an extraordinary academic community surrounded by a quintessential college town. It’s alive with music, culture, food, art, and just the right amount of weird to keep things interesting.
