Ducks in the Capitol

Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 8:00am to 3:00am

Oregon State Capitol 900 Court St., Salem, OR 97301

Care about the cost of tuition? Do something about it! On March 9, join fellow UO students, faculty, and alumni for UO's lobby day in Salem. Join other constituents and advocates to ask lawmakers to defend and further restore funding in our students and on our campuses.

Our previous efforts helped to secure increased funding in Oregon’s public universities for the first time in nearly a decade. We saw first-hand the power of UO advocates when we ask the Legislature to prioritize public higher education. Let's do it again!

This is your opportunity to make your mark on advancing the progress of the university and impact higher education affordability for all students.

Schedule for the day:

  • Legislative visits from constituents and advocates
  • UO students from Undergraduate Symposium research showcase
  • Photos with the Duck
  • Performances by UO musical groups
  • Lunch with UO experts on housing policy

Lunch and transportation are provided. Vans depart UO at 6:45 a.m. and return by 3:30 p.m.
