Activities

Follow us on social media to see updates on upcoming activities and events!

Join us for volunteer, social, cultural, and recreational activities and trips that will help you practice English outside of the classroom. At the AEI, you not only get the best academic experience possible, but we also coordinate the AEI Student Volunteer Program that brings students together to build international understanding through service. Each week we also offer many opportunities to meet new people, explore Oregon, and experience American culture. Some remote activities hosted by our team include game nights, movie nights, tours of Eugene, and many more virtual events to help you connect with fellow University of Oregon students. By getting involved, you can help us plan events and connect with the community through various hands-on service-learning experiences. Come join us for fun, friends, and conversation!

PAST EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES:

  • Dozens of recreational activities each term
  • Cultural events such as coffee hour, cooking classes, and more
  • Trips to Portland, the Oregon Coast, Crater Lake, and skiing
