The Order of the O is for UO former student-athletes who have earned a varsity letter in an intercollegiate sport while at Oregon. The purpose of the Order of the O is to perpetuate the legacy and tradition of University of Oregon Athletics. We promote excellence and leadership of all athletic programs by fostering enduring relationships among current athletes and former letter winners.
The Order of the O has become a productive, viable asset to the University of Oregon by adding value to the UO Athletic department and current student-athletes. Connecting Duck athlete alumni with current Ducks through mentorship and networking, the Order of the O is giving back by building a community to support among fellow Duck athletes.
Once a Duck, Always a Duck!
BREAKING NEWS (SEPT. 16, 2020)
FROM THE OFFICE OF LARRY SCOTT, PAC-12 COMMISSIONER
“The Pac-12 welcomes today’s statements by Governor Newsom of California and Governor Brown of Oregon that state public health officials will allow for contact practice and return to competition, and that there’s no state restrictions on our ability to play sports in light of our adherence to strict health and safety protocols and stringent testing requirements, including our recently announced partnership with Quidel which will enable daily rapid results testing,” Scott said.
“We appreciate Governor Newsom and Governor Brown’s support, the former of which is consistent with the very productive conversation that he and I had earlier today. Our California and Oregon universities will now each individually and immediately reach out to their relevant county public health officials to seek clarification on what is required to achieve the same clearance to resume contact practice and competition. We are eager for our student-athletes to have the opportunity to play this season, as soon as it can be done safely and in accordance with public health authority approvals.”
