Week of Welcome

Week of Welcome is hosted at the beginning of each fall term. Week of Welcome and Parents' Day Off programming is designed to orient our incoming first-year students and families with the University of Oregon campus and community. Parent and Family Programs hosts several large events during the week to support families through this big transition and encourage you to be involved with the university.

 

Family Weekends

Parent and Family Programs plans two family weekends a year so that you can visit your Ducks during the academic year. These family weekends often coincide with athletic and large campus events, such as Homecoming. Each weekend combines structured activities and free time to create a memorable and fun experience!

 

Regional Events

Our regional events are organized and hosted by the Parent and Family Association Regional Representatives. These events bring the Duck community together throughout the country. Events often include student send-offs, Duck athletic event watch parties, care package parties, networking events, and service opportunities. Celebrate being a Duck wherever you are!

 

Commencement

The University offers an official Commencement Ceremony each spring. Commencement is a time for all of us to come together and celebrate the success of our students. The entire campus recognizes the scholarship of students and investment of families as we welcome another class into the ranks of Duck alumni. This day marks a huge accomplishment and transition in the lives of our students, we hope you can join us!
