University of Oregon

Established in 1876, the University of Oregon has “intellectual curiosity every bit as vibrant as our trees”—and it truly is a vibrant, green, lush campus with a community that celebrates differences and lives exceptional experiences. 

From the very beginning, community has been at the very heart of UO, bringing together winners and leaders from all walks of life to learn from each other to make the future brighter. 
And UO made a bright future for its impressive alumni, which includes the founders of Nike, Oregon governors, US Senators and Representatives, thought leaders, actors, and unstoppable business minds who all discovered who they are on the university’s beautiful, tree-lined campus.
