EUGENE, Ore. — University of Oregon students had a warm welcome Monday that included a message for those who may be living off campus for the first time.
Dozens of volunteers and leaders from the city of Eugene walked the streets, knocking on doors in the university area. They were talking to students and residents about how to be safe during the upcoming school year while also being a good neighbor.
Part of the discussion included the city’s new social host ordinance. Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy was just one of those who walked the streets.
The door-to-door canvass was expected to cover more than 70 city blocks.
