Career and Experiences

Sooner or later, your student will be faced with the question, "So what are you doing after college?" Most students come to college to prepare for a career and will face this question in the latter part of their time here. However, we help students start preparing their answers during their first term on campus. For example, our Career Center connects students with resources and opportunities for students to explore what they want to do after college, including UO Advantage, a new tool to help students talk about how they were involved during their time at the UO.


Holden Center for Leadership and Community Engagement

Every student has the potential to be a great leader. If your student is interested in exploring what that looks like for them, or wants to get involved in service on campus or in the community, we have opportunities for them. The Holden Center offers an array of experiences from LeaderShape to Alternative Break trips for students to learn about leadership and service alongside their peers.


Clubs and Organizations

The opportunities for involvement on campus are nearly limitless. Whether your student is interested in a club or wants to join a fraternity or sorority, they have options. The Associated Students of the UO (ASUO) sponsors more than 250 student groups across campus, all focused on topics and activities students are interested in. If your student doesn't see a club or organization that interests them, they can grab some friends and start a new one.
