President's Updates

Welcome to the University of Oregon Class of 2020. Welcome new students, new faculty members. Welcome all!  We have been anticipating your arrival and we are thrilled you are finally here. I came to this university a little over year ago—so I know what it is like to be new—and one of the first things I had to learn was how to throw my O.  Does everyone know how to do that?

As I look at my calendar, I am excited about the start of the new academic year and eager to welcome our students back to campus. While every fall brings a fresh opportunity for us to build upon our high aspirations for the university, this year is especially thrilling. We have a year of strong momentum at our backs.

Academics are at the heart of everything we do, but our students also choose to be Ducks because of the exceptional student experience outside of the classroom. This exceptional student experience, one of the finest in the country, has been shaped and polished by our vice president for student life, Robin Holmes.
