EUO-English Undergraduate Organization

EUO-1University of Oregon English Undergraduate Organization

Founded in 2013, the English Undergraduate Organization (the EUO) is an organization founded by and for undergraduates pursing the study of English language, literature, and writing at the University of Oregon. Our main goal is to provide a community for English majors and minors to augment their studies and strengthen their connections with other English majors and minors, faculty, and the university and surrounding communities. To this end, the EUO seeks to build our intellectual community beyond the classroom by creating opportunities for leadership within the organization, community and event programming related to English, and academic and professional development.

UO Poetry Slam

UO Poetry Slam

Let your voice be heard!

The UO Poetry Slam, founded by undergraduates Alexander Dang (English) and Hannah Golden (Journalism), seeks to build a community and audience for poetry on campus that embodies the inclusiveness and excitement of slam poetry and is open to all interested UO students (both spectators and performers). The UO Poetry Slam holds several open mics, workshops, and competitive slams each term to foster community, increase interest in slam poetry, recruit for the team, and raise money to travel to competitions.

The UO Poetry Slam’s team has been featured in The Daily Emerald, and members have performed at the end-of-year English Department meeting, the Eugene Poetry Slam, the National Poetry Slam, and TEDx, and many campus events, and even in classrooms on campus.
