The University of Oregon is home to one of the finest collegiate athletic programs in the nation. With each season, the Ducks build on a tradition of academic and athletic excellence. In fact, the last five years have seen the ducks capture Pacific-10 championships in football, men’s basketball, and men’s track. The success of Duck sports teams parallel the accomplishments of University of Oregon student athletes. Famous athletes, such as Olympian Steve Prefontaine (track), NFL stars Joey Harrington, Ahmad Rashad, and Dan Fouts, NBA stars Terrell Brandon, Frederick Jones, and Luke Ridnour, and recent WNBA signee Cathrine Kraayeveld, all were Ducks.
Regardless of the sport played at the University of Oregon, the Ducks compete in style, train in first-class facilities, and enjoy a decided home-court advantage. Matthew Knight Arena, home of the Duck volleyball, basketball, and Acrobatics and Tumbling, has been heralded as the finest arena in college athletics. Similarly, Autzen stadium is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 10 venues to watch a college football game and Hayward Field is one of the world’s chief track-and-field shrines.
The University of Oregon Athletic Department welcomes prospective student-athletes, parents, and boosters to learn more about becoming a duck. The recruiting links and general links section of this page contain information about applying to the University of Oregon, athletic scholarships and financial aid, and contact information.
IF YOU ARE A COLLEGE TRANSFER READ THIS:
Based on current NCAA rules, the University of Oregon CANNOT respond via e-mail or phone to any four-year college transfer student without the student-athlete obtaining a release from the first college and faxing that release to the University of Oregon Athletic Department at (541) 346-7227. Once the release is obtained from the first college, then the University of Oregon coach will be able to contact you. In sports other than football, baseball and basketball, four-year college transfer students should make sure their current college will release them to be immediately eligible to compete before considering the University of Oregon.
