Meet Carney

Hometown: Elk Grove, California

Major: Political Science

Student Director for Orientation: Event Management

“I love the UO because of how welcomed I felt as a non-traditional student. I was worried that it would be impossible to meet new people when you’re older than the other students in your class, but it isn’t. Within a few weeks I had found my place in numerous campus communities including social groups and club sports. There are so many opportunities to find your own flocks on campus, anyone can come here and fit right in.”
