On June 13, several thousand UO students will don caps and gowns, stroll through campus to Matthew Knight Arena for commencement ceremonies, and a short while later, emerge as graduates of the University of Oregon.
Many will continue their academic adventures in graduate school, while many others will move on to the first phase of their professional careers. Wherever they go, we wish them well.
Champions come from everywhere. They can excel at biology as easily as baseball; one can be as sharp in history as another is at hockey.
The University of Oregon celebrates all of its champions. That's why every year it holds special events when some of Oregon's top students sign up to become academic Ducks, earning admission to a prestigious group of scholars through the Stamps Scholarship Program.
An undergraduate student at the University of Oregon has many paths from which to choose — more than 270 science and liberal arts majors, centered in seven schools and colleges.
Each school and college has a distinct identity, and serves as community of scholars within the larger university. We set out to explore these centers of knowledge through video storytelling, focusing on outstanding faculty members and students.
Watch this space in the coming weeks and months as more schools and colleges land in the video spotlight.
