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 will offer a comprehensive, concurrent IntroDUCKtion program for Parents and Families for each in-person session. We highly encourage each student to bring at least one parent or family member with them so they, too, are ready for this major life transition.
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.
