Welcome New Ducks

September 25, 2022

Dear incoming students,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of Oregon. It was terrific seeing many of you at University Convocation and during Week of Welcome. All these traditions—and many more you’ll experience this year—are designed to help you get to know your classmates, roommates, professors, advisors, and more.

The start of anything new can bring a mix of any number of emotions. But know that we are in this together. And we are better together! There are hundreds of people and programs across our campus dedicated to ensuring you are supported in the classroom and out. You’ll find all these resources by visiting One Stop Student Resources.

I hope your classes get off to a great start this week and you have a wonderful start to your time at the university. Go Ducks!
