On Saturday, October 26, the UO is once again hosting ESPN College GameDay. The production will be staged on the Memorial Quad with set-up scheduled to begin early Thursday morning. In preparation for the trucks of equipment that will be arriving, all vehicles will have to be moved out of the Johnson Hall parking lot before 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 23, and the lot will be fully occupied through the morning of Sunday, October 27.
The Memorial Quadrangle is the grass area between the Knight Library (south) and Lillis Business Complex (north), and Prince Lucien Campbell and Condon halls (west) and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and Chapman Hall (east) on the west side of campus near 13th
Avenue and Kincaid Street. Please let us know if there are any activities scheduled in these buildings that may not be on a master schedule or anyone else’s radar. Email Margaret Mahoney with that information: firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be ESPN College GameDay’s eighth visit to our campus. Given the success in previous years of staging on the Memorial Quad, and the dedicated efforts of UO staff, we anticipate another positive experience. Let me emphasize that ESPN is respectful of the UO’s academic mission, and classes and students will remain the top priority on Thursday and Friday.
More information will be forthcoming in AroundtheO today.
Thanks for your cooperation.
Interim Senior Vice President and Provost
