Preliminary data indicate that the UO’s first day of classes brought in 4,602 first-year students to campus, which represents a growth of 17 percent over last year's and 53 percent over the last 20 years. “The UO has been on a trajectory for more than a decade now,” Thompson said. “The academic quality, incredible access to facilities, outstanding programs, top faculty and many other reasons make this a special place and many high school students are taking notice.
New Ducks also established several records for academic achievements and more
There is no doubt these records represent team effort,” Thompson said. “Everyone worked together to welcome our new students and their families. Many team members helped with virtual events, called students, assisted with our 25 IntroDUCKtion sessions and so much more. This is a great day to celebrate.”
