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.
