The College of Design Student Services office holds numerous events throughout the fall, winter, and spring quarters of each academic year. Our events are designed to help connect you with professionals through networking activities and/or are opportunities for you to develop skills related to career pursuit and advancement. Listed below are the larger, annual events; smaller events vary from term to term and will be advertised in the 2020-21 academic year primarily through email directly to students, the College of Design events feed, and departmental updates.
Look for event announcements in our weekly enews delivered to your uoregon email. Not yet in our mailing list? Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added.
Due to Covid-19 precautions, all Student Services events during the 2020-21 academic year will be presented via virtual platforms.
A variety of professional and non-profit organizations seeking to recruit and/or engage students typically coordinate with Student Services to hold free information sessions during the fall. Watch for announcements in our weekly enews and in uoregon email, and, when we’re back on campus, on posters on the Eugene and Portland campuses, and on digital screens in Lawrence Hall.
