  • The University of Oregon is the home of the fighting ducks. World class student athletes from all over the country come to the University of Oregon. Our campus had the most high tech and futuristic facilities around. Construction is never ending at the University of Oregon constantly striving for greatness and willingly accepting change as a culture. From Autzen Stadium to Mat Knight Arena to Hayward Field to the iconic  McArthur Court. This is the place to be. Track Town USA is Eugene Oregon home of the University of Oregon if you're a runner You need to come check out our miles and miles and miles of groomed trails in town out of town all the way to the mountains in the east and to the coast on the West.
  • Pretty good experience but if you try to use the WiFi anywhere on campus prepare for new levels of frustration. If you live in the dorms it will be the worst wireless experience of your life, and don’t worry because nothing will be done to improve it. Pretty confident the school has been using the same routers since 1800’s. Also killer Mac from global scholars hall is pretty good
