The annual camping trip extravaganza near Mt. Adams in Washington State is back! It will be five night-long trip, filled with rafting on the White Salmon River, hiking, stargazing, caving, fishing, swimming, soaking in hot-springs, rappelling off a waterfall (if we have the skills!), eating like royalty, viewing the entire Cascade Mountain Range from an old fire lookout, and exploring 2 unnamed waterfalls recently found within miles from our campsite. For the second year in a row, we will also be visiting the ECETI “UFO Ranch” to search for UFOs! Whether you're a returning veteran of the Mt. Adams trip or this is your first time, you won't want to miss once in a lifetime (or once a year) opportunity!

We are bringing back tradition this year and will be bringing the noise! In years past, the homecoming parade was considered a "noise parade". Thanks to the UO Duck Store, we will be handing out noisemakers to parade-goers as well as participants to help bring the noise. We have golf carts reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for student groups who sign up!

Join the Duck Truck, golf cart floats and our amazing UO Band and UO Competitive Dance Team, as we make our way from the EMU Green to 13th and Kincaid. The parade will end at 13th and Kincaid where the 2019 Community Welcome will be under way, and where the Feed the Flock Pep Rally will kick off. There will be activities, food, music, performances and much more.

Best places to watch will be at the EMU Green and along 13th Avenue toward Kincaid Street.
