University of Oregon Freshmen Profiles

We’re excited about our 2014 class of freshmen. They’re smart, diverse and come from all over the globe. They are so ready to be Ducks, so ready to soak up all that the college experience offers at the University of Oregon. We’ve picked some of them to profile, starting with an outstanding group of Stamps Leadership Scholars. We’ll be adding more profiles during the fall term, so be sure to check back often.
