Our aim is to get past each person’s role at the University of Oregon, and focus on the personal interests that make him or her stand out. Maybe a surfer, a sailor or a singer. Maybe a home brewer, homebuilder or hometown hero. Probably not a homebody.
Maybe the person’s story will make you say, “huh!” Maybe it will make you say, “wow!”
