Believe us, life on campus is busy—an exciting, life-changing sort of busy. That's why we bring professors, speakers, advisors, and other academic support services to you in your halls. We’ll make is easy to get the support you need while you're a Duck.
The best questions and conversations happen when you are walking back from class. Faculty in residence are there for those moments, because they live in the halls.
Every hall has a faculty fellow. Think of them like your fairy godparents. They may not have magic wands, but they care about you and their expertise and experience is kind of magical. Ask your faculty fellow questions and get to know a faculty member out of class.
Flight Path Advisors
University Housing has partnered with the College of Arts and Sciences and Tykeson College and Career Advising to host Flight-Path-specific academic and career advisors within the residence halls. These folks can provide both academic and career advising, and help students explore interests while making the most out of their experiences on campus.
About Flight Paths
To help students navigate all of their options, the UO organized majors into six thematic categories based on academic and career interests. These groupings are called Flight Paths, and will serve as a framework for you to explore subjects and eventually choose a career path and major. Learn more.
