With commencement and summer approaching, the UO wants to emphasize the importance of staying safe. Learn how to best prep for commencement, and refresh yourself on some of the university’s top safety services before going on vacation or strolling campus at night.
The 2022 commencement ceremony is set to celebrate the classes of 2022, 2021 and 2020. With as many as 30,000 people attending the big day, here are a few things to consider:
  • All graduating students must be present at Autzen Stadium by 8:15 a.m. Anyone arriving after that time may be denied entry to the field.
  • No food or drinks will be allowed on the field. Students will be asked to dispose of or recycle any food or drinks before entering the Autzen gates to go onto the field.
  • Commencement is a substance-free event. Substances brought into the stadium will be confiscated immediately.
  • The turf at Autzen Stadium can be challenging to walk on. Be mindful of your choice of footwear and consider tennis shoes or flats.
  • Make sure to lock your car after you park and leave all valuables at home. 
  • Graduates, please explore services and resources for you post-graduation from the University Career Center.
  • The UO Police Department offers general crime prevention tips on their website.
  • Bike theft is the number one crime on campus. Always lock your bike, and register your bike for free through Project 529. Law enforcement can help return your bike if it is stolen.
  • Check out the UOPD's campus crime information to keep tabs on what's happening in the UO community. The crime log is updated daily.
  • Contact the UOPD for more information through their non-emergency line: 541-346-2919.
  • Be alert when walking at night. View the virtual Safety at Night map for the best-lit routes and approximately 60 emergency phones all over campus.
  • If you don't feel safe walking alone, the UO Police Department provides safety escorts to and from any campus location 24/7. Call 541-346-2919 to request an escort. 

That's a wrap on spring term! Quick Quacks will be sent out once a month during the summer. Watch your inbox for the next newsletter Thursday, July 7.
