Duck Days

Duck Days

Duck Days is the University of Oregon's spring campus visit program for admitted students and their families. Whether you are a recently admitted senior finalizing your college selection or a transfer student, don't miss this opportunity to:

  • Explore a world-class university with an international reputation for academic excellence—the only member of the prestigious Association of American Universities in the state of Oregon.
  • Find out about our First-Year Programs and why the number of freshmen who continue here at the UO is 20 percent above the national average.
  • Discover the UO's superior student services and campus involvement opportunities.

Guests can purchase lunch in any of our dining venues or retail eateries on campus.

Registration will open in January 2019. After we receive your online registration, we'll send you a letter confirming your attendance at Duck Days. We will include a map of campus and parking directions. You can find travel tips and places to stay here.

Please wait to make travel arrangements until you have received your confirmation email after registering for Duck Days. These events often fill to capacity and once that occurs, we are unable to change your registration to accomodate previously made travel plans. For instance, we cannot add you to a full event even if you’ve made flight reservations before attempting to register.

What is on the agenda?

Duck Days will include campus tours, academic exploration sessions, and an information fair. Attendees will also hear from First-Year Programs, housing, financial aid, and other departments. Guests can purchase lunch in any of our dining venues or retail eateries on campus. Guests should arrive on campus between 11:30 a.m. and noon and plan to stay until 4:30-5:00 p.m. A full schedule will be emailed to registered guests one week prior to the event.
