“The UO gave us an opportunity to start groups and network in an environment where it’s easier to connect because people want to help you on your career journey.”
Student Clubs and Organizations
The college actively supports and encourages student participation in clubs as a vital component of the college experience. Not only do clubs give students an opportunity to interact and learn from peers, but they also provide the opportunity to bring together and apply lessons learned from various courses in a hands-on setting. Club activities include everything from organizing events, seminars, fundraising for local nonprofits, guest speakers, field trips, site visits, and career development workshops to networking and managing real stock portfolios.
Guest Speakers and Executives
Hundreds of business leaders come to the UO campus every year to share their insights with students in workshops and lectures, via a guest speaker series, or as part of executive-in-residence programs. Students in both our Eugene and Portland programs benefit from these experiences as well as make important connections with business leaders and industry professionals.
