The UO Chinese Flagship Program offers regular cultural opportunities each term. We also encourage students to become involved in the campus community, particularly in ways that intersect with Chinese language and culture.
The UO is bursting with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. With over 750 Chinese-speaking international students and hundreds more non-matriculated students studying in American English Institute programs, there is plenty of opportunity for Flagship students to use Chinese, build friends, and get involved.
The UO Mills International Center hosts language circles each Monday from 6:00-7:00. Flagship students are able to meet with native Chinese-speaking peers to practice conversational speaking and listening.
The Yamada Language Center coordinates the Language Exchange program. Flagship students are able to meet with Chinese-speaking peers to practice conversation speaking and listening, in exchange for helping Chinese speakers practice their English skills.
The American English Institute offers a tutoring and conversation partner program for international students. Apply to become an AEI tutor, helping a Chinese-native speaker practice his or her English and learn about Chinese culture along the way.
Duck Corps is a force of over 700 UO students committed to public service and volunteerism. Duck Corps hosts a variety of volunteer opportunities each year. Get to know a team of like-minded students as well as community organizations by learning, serving, and reflecting around a social issue area.
