Another college visit in my pursuit of finding the perfect fit for my students. This time its Eugene, Oregon to the campus of the U of Oregon.
Although I just missed a field goal attempt on the famous Ducks Stadium football field, I was still on an adrenaline high from having run a 5K on the world famous Hayward Field where the US Track and Field tryouts for the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics were held. There is so much to say about the U of Oregon academically but the phrase, "Learn hard and play hard," is evident in all facets of life here. There's so much pride here that I was somewhat mesmerized by their sense of oneness. Check out the bottom link and more to see if pacific northwest is the place for you.
Simply put they call it the Duck Life: https://uoregon.edu/duck-life
