Parent and Family Events
University of Oregon Parent and Family Programs plans several large events on campus throughout the year to provide opportunities to visit your student and connect to the Duck community. We also participate in several events with campus partners to ensure that the parent and family experience is an exceptional one. Our annual events include:
Student Orientation Programs offers a comprehensive IntroDUCKtion Parent Program during each of the two-day IntroDUCKtion sessions. Parents of first-year students are strongly encouraged to attend. The IntroDUCKtion Parent Program is designed to help family members understand the ins and outs of navigating a large, public research university and the ways parents and the university can be partner to ensure student success.
