Athletics: When there is a football game, the whole town stops and we are all about our ducks. I think that game days are some of the most cherished memories created by anyone who has attended the UO. I attended while Mariota played and received the Heisman and can honestly say that the Autzen Stadium experience is unlike anything else. Not only are the football facilities superb, but the student recreation center was recently expanded and renovated. It is somewhere that is uplifting and enjoyable to be with a positive environment and staff. Many non-athletes, as well as athletes, participate in intramural sports (this includes co-ed teams). There is also a wide variety of PE, sports, yoga, and health classes offered through the Rec Center.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are known for the success that our sports teams have had but sometimes we're seen as a sports venue rather than an academic institution.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

"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.

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.
