4 College Senior

Athletics: A huge population of the student body attends the sporting events. The teams generally perform very well, and the school spirit is very strong. Many of the students wear university wardrobe, and openly cheer "go ducks!" to one another whenever the moment strikes. The athletic facilities for student athletes are incredible, but the athletic facilities for everyone else are subpar at best. I was very disappointed in the student athletic facilities. They are renovating, but the facilities are much smaller still (which doesn't make sense because the student population far outweighs the student athlete population). OSU just 45 minutes north has incredible facilities for their students. A majority of sexual assault happens at and after football games by the football stadium.

Athletics: WE LOVE OUR DUCKS!!!! Seriously, just google Oregon Ducks. We are a national brand, obnoxiously school spirited, and have Uncle Phil putting swooshes on our uniforms (We love our Uncle Phil!). #WTD #supwitugirl #ilovemyducks (yes I hashtagged, but if you look up those hashtags, you will understand why). ALSO: Uncle Phil = Phil Knight: creator and head of Nike; UO alumni (Knight Library, Matt Knight Arena, Matt Court).

Athletics: I did intramural dodge ball at the University of Oregon and it was so much fun! The athletic facilities are great and the people have great attitudes. The athletic classes that are offered are awesome, too.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our university puts way too much emphasis on our sports teams, especially football, when it comes to student recruitment/publicity. There needs to be equal emphasis on what we've accomplished as a research university and educational institution.

"Track Town, USA"; multiple Olympic trials at Hayward Field; men's basketball in the Elite 8 . . . any of these factoids sound familiar? Varsity athletics are a big deal at the University of Oregon, which is home to some of the best teams and athletic facilities in the nation. Oregon is a fierce competitor in the Conference of Champions, the Pac-12, and all of Eugene gets behind the University in support of intercollegiate athletics. The popular football and men's basketball events sell out student tickets within hours, though other sports only require a student ID for free admission. It never rains on Saturdays at Autzen Stadium, and fans would probably show up even if it did.

Intramurals and club sports offer athletic alternatives to Division I competition. The UO's intramurals are open to everyone on campus, and more organized club sports offer everything from martial arts to triathlon. While you won't feel pressured to be involved with sports at Oregon, many students do choose to join in some form. This makes it a great way to meet new people while keeping yourself in shape. If you're interested in sporting events or think that weekends spent cheering on your favorite team are the way to go, you'll feel right at home with UO's athletic climate.

School Spirit
The school spirit at the UO has to be higher than any other school in the area. Almost everyone in Eugene owns some type of sports memorabilia, and everyone is supportive of the school in general. Eugene is very much a college town, and the whole community backs the University and its students with great support.
