One of the best parts about living in Eugene is the community spirit. Every one cares about their neighbor—it’s part of the fabric of our city.

There’s no difference at the University. Students work hard to live in harmony. Taking care of the college is a group effort. Want to get involved?

When: Thursday, May 18 at 8:30am to 4:00pm

Where: Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Across from EMU Amphitheater at Collier Lawn (Corner of 13th Avenue and University Street)
1395 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403

Volunteer on University Day to help make the UofO campus beautiful!

“University Day is a campus-wide beautification event that takes place each spring. Hundreds of students, staff, and faculty gather together to plant flowers, spread bark dust, and enjoy live entertainment provided by campus groups. We also invite community members to join us! The tradition dates back to 1904 as part of Junior Weekend, when projects included things such as laying the walk to Deady, followed by a feast. It has always been a spirited event to prepare the University grounds for commencement ceremonies, and even though it has greatly evolved since 1904, our roots still lie in campus spirit and community service.

Any student, staff, faculty, alumni, or community member is welcome to participate. There is no pre-registration required, simply join us at Collier Lawn (on the corner of 13th Avenue and University Street, just west of the EMU Amphitheater) between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to participate. Volunteers will be assigned to a section of campus to plant flowers, weed flower beds, spread bark dust, clean up litter, etc. Committing one hour of your time will earn you an exclusive free University Day t-shirt.” – from the website
