The University of Oregon Senior Year Bucket List

It’s all happening for the University of Oregon’s class of 2014. June 16 marks the day the UO senior class will cross the stage to become alumni. For thousands of college graduates across the United States this time is both exhilarating and a bit scary.

In order to make the most out of your last days at UO, here is a personalized bucket list for you!

Go to every dollar beers.

Okay maybe you can’t make it to every dollar beers, but if you can just go! Realistically it’s the last time on a Wednesday night you can see all your friends at one of three bars and get a beer for $1.


Hike Spencer’s Butte at sunset.

There aren’t many prettier places to hike in the world than in Oregon. Spring term sunsets can be breathtaking. Grab some friends, find a perfectly sunny day and climb to the top of the Butte.

Take a road trip.

The best college memories for some people are made on road trips. Whether you are road tripping to Shasta, Stagecoach, Coachella or just taking a weekend trip to Portland, you can still have a blast.

Go to the bars in downtown Eugene.

If you feel like the campus bars get repetitive try something new and experience the downtown bars for a night.

Don’t skip class.

Once you start working fulltime you will miss only having class for a few hours a day. Spend as much time as you can in class focused on your major. After all, the reason you are at this lovely university is to receive an outstanding education.


Go to a baseball game at PK Park.

There aren’t many things better than good baseball on a sunny day. Check out the Oregon baseball schedule on goducks.com and find a game to go to. 

Reminisce on old memories.

Gather your best friends you’ve made at UO and have a night in talking about all the funny, wild and unforgettable times you have had together.

Go to the Eugene Saturday market downtown.

Eugene’s Saturday market is unique and makes for a fun outing. Head downtown on a Saturday and enjoy some homemade treats and pick up some fresh veggies at the Saturday market.

Thank your parents.

Take time to thank the people in your life who have supported you through your college years.

Make every moment count.  

Last but not least, make every moment of your time left in college count. Save the stressing about real life for another time and be fully present in every one of your last moments as an undergrad at the University of Oregon. 

I am currently a senior at the University of Oregon, majoring in public relations and minoring in communication studies. I love writing, journaling, and using social media; my favorite types of social media are Pinterest and Twitter. In my spare time you can find me enjoying the outdoors, socializing with my sorority sisters, or at an Oregon football game.
