Reasons why I came to UO

My high school was a big public school with a top football team. I applied to many universities but when I visited University of Oregon I had a movie-like moment that made me fall in love. (Bible, I am in no way exaggerating). I visited over March ’13 & came a day before my parents & stayed with my older sister’s friend. Naturally it was pouring outside & of course I was hopelessly lost somewhere on campus. All of a sudden the rain stopped & the sun was peaking out. At the same time I came across the marching band & they were playing Come on Eileen , oh I swear what he means. At this moment you mean everything. One of the most liked songs ever. That’s when I fell in love. Currently I am in my third year at UO & couldn’t be more happy. I am a journalism major with a focus on advertising. I love exploring to different waterfalls & hot springs & rivers that are all less than two hours outside of Eugene. The Willamette river is just before Autzen Stadium, is about a 15 minute walk from my house. I miss California of course & I know I will be living there after graduation. I believe everyone should live in a different state at least once in their life. Oregon has & always will have a special place in my heart.

& yes that is my yellow mini cooper.
