When Ann Oluloro prepared to graduate from Madison High School in Portland, she chose the University of Oregon for its "location, the Honors College, and the university's strong reputation in scientific research." Oluloro is now a UO senior who interned with doctors in Bolivia and assists with faculty research. She has been accepted by OHSU's master's in public health program and plans to become a family practitioner or pediatrician.

Oluloro is one of many UO heroes who are making a difference in our world while earning their UO degrees.

UO students are welcomed into a community that embraces new ideas and encourages you to put your ideas into action. With a student-teacher ratio of 19:1 and an average class size of 19 students, you'll discover that it's easy to connect with faculty members who can help to turn your dreams into reality.

Students at the UO choose from 269 academic programs, many of them ranked as among the best in the world. Ann Oluloro is pursuing a degree in biology and biochemistry with a minor in business administration. She works in Janis Week's neuroscience lab, developing new drug technology and finding ways to distribute much-needed drugs to the public quickly.

Students from fifty U.S. states and 89 countries around the world attend the UO. Over the past five years, the UO welcomed more underrepresented minority students than ever before. The UO is a national leader, and the top university in Oregon, for graduation rates of underrepresented students.

The University of Oregon has been part of the Portland community since 1884. Our campus in the historic White Stag block of downtown Portland offers programs in journalism, architecture, digital arts, product design, business, law, sustainability leadership, and continuing education.
