BE PART OF AN INCLUSIVE AND EXCITING COMMUNITY BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

University of Oregon English Undergraduate Organization (EUO)

An organization founded by and for undergraduates pursuing 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, minors, faculty, 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; social, academic, and professional development event programming related to English.

Sigma Tau Delta (ΣΤΔ)

The Alpha Tau Phi Chapter was officially chartered March 13, 2013. Our desire to establish a distinguished community of English scholars to meet and collaborate both intellectually and socially, motivated us to bring Sigma Tau Delta to the University of Oregon. 

Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society, an organization that confers distinction for high achievement in English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature. A member of the Association of College Honor Societies, Sigma Tau Delta began in 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan University. There are over 800 active chapters located in the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Middle East.

The UO Poetry Slam

A club that was founded in 2013 and 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.

Shakesqueer! 

Shakesqueer is an EUO-affiliated space for LGBTQ+ students & allies to produce Shakespeare plays with a focus on queer experience.
 
Unbound Journal 

A student-run literary arts journal at the University of Oregon that publishes undergraduate & graduate prose, poetry and visual art. The journal was founded in 2008 as a Clark Honors College thesis project and has since evolved from an online student publication to a biannual print journal.
 
Art Ducko 

The University of Oregon's official comics magazine. Art Ducko was established in Fall 2014 with the simple goal of providing a creative platform for students to publish their original comics.
