Out on the Town: University of Oregon

By Sherpa Lauren Johnson Perfectly placed in between our spirited game days, campus plays host to the fall term street fair. Vendors from all over Oregon come out and bring the students super yummy food like Oreo dipped ice cream bars, snow cones, elephant ears, gyros, BBQ and so much more. But don’t worry, the food only makes up half of it! Students can buy jewelry, tapestries, posters and all types of super unique clothes! (I just bought a pair of adorable elephant shorts). The street fair is a dream land with all the food and goods you could ever ask for, enlivening our campus for three days twice a year.

What’s Something People Don’t Know About Your School?

“Wake is somewhat of a hidden gem, especially for someone like me from the West Coast.Greek life is an important aspect of the campus community, but there are many other ways to be involved on campus and find your “niche.” Clubs on campus range from your typical book reading club to club cross country and even a frisbee club. As a sophomore here at Wake, straight from the distant San Francisco Bay Area, I can say wholeheartedly that I have no regrets coming to Wake. Students at Wake come from all over the country, allowing one to perhaps step out of your comfort zone. The people, thanks in part to the warm southern hospitality, are incredibly welcoming. I would not trade my decision to attend Wake Forest University for anything else, I absolutely and unequivocally love it.” -Sherpa Ryan, Wake Forest University
