Getting Involved on Campus

International Student Groups/ASUO

There are many student groups at the UO, representing China, Japan, Hong Kong, Central & South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Vietnam, and more. There is also the International Student Association (ISA), which includes students from all around the world as well as American students. You can also get involved in student government and more through the Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO). Get involved with one or more of these groups and help the UO become a truly international campus.
