Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.
Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:
Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.
How does Let’s Talk work?
Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

A film by Brian McLawhorn and Randolph Benson.
Free screenings: Friday, May 27 at 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm [prior to the Prefontaine Classic track meet that starts at 7:00pm)
Reserve free tickets here: thechurchofpre.com
This is the premiere screening of a documentary film about the legendary University of Oregon long distance runner Steve Prefontaine and the people who make pilgrimages to his roadside memorial in Eugene, Oregon (“Pre's Rock”). The film documents Prefontaine's legacy and how his death galvanized the phenomenon of Pre's Rock being viewed as a shrine.
It explores why people make pilgrimages from all over the world to pay their respects, connect with his spirit, and draw inspiration for their own life endeavors. The topic is explored through scholarly viewpoints, while also gaining perspective from Prefontaine’s friends and former teammates. The film also examines why people leave items at Pre's Rock and where these items eventually end up. The film is based on a scholarly article by Daniel Wojcik, a UO professor and Oregon Track Club member.
“This is the best film to explain why Pre's legacy continues to thrive."–– Steve Bence, Prefontaine’s teammate and friend.
