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.
