Ducks Give

New Gaming Center Coming Soon!

Thanks to generous donors, UO Libraries received 95 gifts totaling $44,579 during Ducks Give. These will be used to support the UO Libraries including a new free gaming center in the Allan Price Science Commons and Research Library.

Why a gaming center?

This free gaming space would promote student engagement through various forms of gaming, including board games, video games, and more.

It would also help students:

  • Increase cognitive skills
  • Build peer-to-peer collaboration and teamwork  
  • Boost creativity
  • Get stress relief
  • Develop career skills such as critical thinking and problem solving using technology

Jordyn Johnson, an undergraduate student studying marketing and analytics, is particularly excited about this challenge. She shares:

“I think having a space for people who enjoy all things games, not just E-sports, is important for community building. When students have a space they can enter, that allows them to be around other students who enjoy the same things, it creates enriching experiences that promote growth and wellbeing.”
