Get Ready to Be a Duck!

Student Orientation Programs introduce new Ducks and their families to life at the University of Oregon, demonstrating the UO’s commitment to teaching, learning, and scholarship. Our mission is to enhance the new student experience by providing guidance and assistance to students making academic, personal, and social adjustments to college life.

Parents and Families

We know how important your student is to you and that you are deeply invested in your student’s success and well-being. At the UO, we take our responsibility for student achievement very seriously and invite you to partner with us to help your student succeed in college.

We are finalizing a robust schedule of remote programming for Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion during July, August, and early September. Additionally, we have finalized programming that will occur in conjunction with move-in during late September. Throughout the summer, we will be sending you important information about the UO. To be sure we have the correct email on file for you, please email with your student’s full name, their UO ID number, and your full name and email address. Lastly, if there is any way we can support your student or your family, please reach out to us.

We look forward to welcoming you and your student to the University of Oregon family. If you have any questions, please reach out to us or listen to our podcast, Flock Talk, where we highlight timely higher education topics, and discuss themes directly related to supporting first-year students at the UO.
