    That isn't the problem....basically the University thinks of the students as an afterthought....pay your tuition but just don't bother us. And the students are fed up.

    If you walk around campus now just about all the fancy new buildings are off limits to students. The Jacqua Center for tutoring, Knight Arena, the Sanders softball field, the Alumni Center and Hayward Field... and not even counting the football complex across the river.. Hayward now is this huge dominating monolith and students aren't allowed in at all. Just for a small elite group. A semi pro athletic operation on a public university. Tuition keeps going up because they run a deficit each year.

    I am not even sure why a nonathlete would even go to Oregon. I wouldn't recommend it.

    a "proper" grad ceremony requires hundreds of hotel/motel rooms for family

    University of Oregon seniors facing virtual graduation frustrated by Olympic Trials, track plans



    "I just want the (Olympic) trials and graduation to be held at the same standard — so either they both happen or they both don't," said Morgan Leone, a 22-year-old UO senior graduating in June. "And if they both don't, it's unfortunate they couldn't make it happen. (People) worked really hard for both of them, but I would love to see them both happen regardless."
    I don't know the whole story, but why can't the Trials people jiggle the schedule on Graduation day to allow for the ceremony to take place at the same time----like between events on the track or field??
    How long does the Grad thing take?
    Have it between a morning and afternoon session!

    Yes the view south towards Spencer's Butte was pleasant....especially when the temporary stands weren't there..

    Yes, meant that. Fingers/keyboard malfunction.

    A couple of the gals at work passed out a little questionnaire today, something to do with birthdays, asking what our favorites are...snack, drink, animal, flower, etc. One was our favorite place in the world. I can't narrow it down to just one, but Eugene would be in the top ten. Got me thinking about the old Hayward, and one of the things I'll miss with the New Hayward is the view from the West Grandstand looking southeast toward the hills and trees of Hendricks Park. First meet there for me (other than 1988 NCAA) was Pre Classic 2010 and IIRC, during the free Friday evening session there were just a few raindrops, a mix of clouds and gray/cobalt-blue sky, and a beautiful yellow-orange light on those hills as the sun sank low behind us in the west. Hard to beat it. (This from the 2016 OT.)

    That surprises me. I was fully paid as of LAST summer. I think the public sale is gonna be a total craps shoot, so the T&FN Tour is the only sure bet.

    there's a firewall between the editorial department and the business side of the operation.

    It should be noted we got great Trials tickets without donating anything....just a season ticket holder that was cheap to get 2 years ago...of course the WCs are a different kettle of fish...

    Possibly...especially since no one went there...but I think some of the temporary seats will be available...at least on a day to day basis...that would be fine.

    This is all speculation at this point.
