Well-Being

Duck Nest

Find your balance.

The Duck Nest is your resource for self-care and life balance through peer-led mental, physical, and sexual well-being programming.

Check us out at EMU 041 (ground floor).


 

Promoting Well-Being

Physical, sexual, and mental well-being are important to student success. The University Health Services well-being team provides programming for UO students through the Duck Nest and in the community via events and programs to assist you in pursuing balance. Through highly trained peer wellness facilitators, find your calm through a wide range of mental, physical, and sexual well-being resources. We also connect you with resources within the UO community and beyond.

Zine Submission: Relationship with Manhood & Masculinity
November 17–30
6:00–12:00 a.m.

Calling all creatives or folks who want to explore their creativity! We'd love for your expression and artistry to be showcased in the form of a zine. The theme of this zine is for folks to explore their relationship to manhood and masculinitity. UO students of any gender identity are eligible to share their submissions, and submissions will be accepted between November 1-30.

Folks can submit written works (poetry, essays and short stories no longer than two typed pages) and art (both digital and physical). These will be compiled into a zine, which will be produced during winter term and will be available at the Duck Nest and the Men's Resource Center (MRC) at a to-be-determined date. 

If you're interested in participating, you can bring your zine to the Duck Nest (EMU 041), MRC (EMU 211) or submit your work electronically here: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0CyEscCNDpXOjjM
