Presented by Parent and Family Programs, Parents' Day Off is a full day of events for parents and families of incoming first-year students. The purpose of these events is to orient families with the Eugene area, as well as provide the opportunity to talk to key staff members at the university.

You don’t have to wait until graduation to get involved in the work you love. From social justice to sustainability, humanities to health, explore how to apply your academic interests at the UO and make the most of your degree. Discover opportunities beyond the classroom, connect with people in the know, and develop next steps to incorporate your passions into your first year and beyond.
Are you a first-year or transfer student living off-campus this year? Join Student Orientation Staffers who have had the same experience. We'll give you resources for living off-campus, best ways to stay involved, and where to find your community. After the presentation and question-and-answer session, we'll all walk over to the Pep Rally together.
Learn what it takes to be in the student section as a Duck, the dedication, the energy, the noise! We’ll celebrate our student-athletes and coaches while learning what it means to be a fan at the UO. We have free t-shirts for everyone who attends. This pep rally will get you ready for gameday.
Don't miss out on being part of the legacy of your class with this year's class photo, taken directly after the pep rally at Matthew Knight Arena. All of your friends of the class of 2022 will be around you throwing up the O.
