  Campus History and Origin

       Back in 1859, Congress required Oregon’s founders to establish a public university for all to join. That university is US Oregon’s pioneers were more concerned with working  out a living than in the refinements of higher education. But in the early 1870s, Judge Joshua Walton convinced residents of Eugene City to become home to what would become the fledgling state’s flagship university. After producing seven governors, two Nobel Prize winners, 13 Pulitzer Prize winners, 19 Rhodes Scholars, 13 Olympic medalists, and six NFL Hall of Famers.

     Today, more than 24,000 students, from all 50 states and more than 95 countries, study at Oregon. But their early years were not without their challenges. They nearly closed in 1881 because of a debt of $8,182. Railroad magnate Henry Villard donated $7,000 to pay it down. Oregon named our second building after him. In 1885, the university received its first appropriation from the legislature, for $30,000. That funding increased to $47,500 by 1901. On two occasions, in 1913 and again in 1932, efforts to combine the UO with what is now Oregon State University in Corvallis were thwarted—no doubt to the relief of Ducks and Beavers alike.

     That first muddy 17-acre parcel has grown into a verdant, 295-acre gem, home to more than 3,000 trees. Not to mention brand new labs, residence halls, and soon, a newly remodeled recreation center and student union.But there’s more to the University of Oregon than buildings and trees, books and labs. From that first muddy pasture has sprung an intellectual curiosity every bit as vibrant as our trees.

We yearn to ask why and what if. So why? Why this place? Why right now?

Because they're Ducks. And that’s what Ducks do.

As well as the creator of Nike Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight graduated from Oregon University. Now the teams gets all the best gear when it comes to uniforms from Nike.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am here to inform you that the classroom has become a whole different realm for me. Before, the teachers and students alike preached the importance of learning, but it was implicitly obvious that the most important concern was grades. At [school's name] teachers genuinely believe that learning is the most importance objective and deeply encourage us to collaborate with each other and make use of all resources that we may find. In fact, in a certain class this year, my teacher assigned us to prepare every day of the week to discuss a certain book; there were only two requirements in this preparation -- we had to maximize our sources, gleaning from everything and everyone in the school, but we were not allowed to actually look at the book. As a result, I know more about that book than any other that I have actually read. It is teaching methods such as this which ensure that we will learn more. Indeed, this matter of "thinking" has been one of the most important aspects of my experience. Whether in Physics or English, I'm required to approach every problem and idea independently and creatively rather than just regurgitate the teacher's words. In discussion with fellow students both inside and outside of class, the complex thoughts flowing through everyone's brain is evident.

The school's faculty and students are conscious about keeping all of the kids' attention from being based on the school. Every single issue of global concern is brought forth by one group or another whether it be a faculty member, publication, ethnic society, or individual student. Along with being aware of issues of importance, after attending Pebble Hills High School my personality has evolved. First, my mannerisms have grown: the school stresses giving respect to everyone and everything. Our former principal often said, "Strive for excellence not perfection." The other prime goal of the school's community is to convert every single timid lower-classman into a loud, rambunctious senior. Basically, if you have an opinion about something, it is wrong not to voice that opinion. Of course, being obnoxious is not the idea. The key is to become a master of communication with teachers, fellow students, all of whom are a part of the community, and most importantly, those who are outside of the community.

I do not want to make Pebble Hills High School sound as if it produces the perfect students, because it doesn't. But the school deserves a lot of credit for its efforts. Often, some part of the mold does remain. As the college experience approaches, I am still the same person, only modified to better maximize my talents. Although I still have some time to play tennis and see movies, perhaps one of the few similarities between this photograph and me now is my smile.

           Cover Letter

Good evening employer,

I am here applying for the position as Plastic Surgeon at Las Palmas Del Sol Medical Center which would be a perfect job.

This time of year I am earning my Master’s in Human Biology at the University of Oregon. My class that I’m currently enrolled in are Clinical Lab Sciences. Throughout my entire education I have done numerous projects for my experience in surgery. One was earning my Bachelor’s in Biomedical Science. My pursuit in surgery will make me become an asset to the hospital. My class that i was taking to get me where I was in college was PLTW Intro to Biomedical Science. Where they showed the basics of the training it takes to become a plastic surgeon and the education that proceeds.

As I am writing this to you I have graduated with the Master’s in Human Biology and am ready for your response. I’m a hardworking person that gets the job done. There will be no mistakes that happen because I will not have any failure in the workplace. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter to the hospital.
