Announcing: Art Department Peer Advisors, 2016-17


Hello! My name is Katie Lipp and I am currently one of the two Peer Advisors for the Art and Art and Technology departments. I am a senior this year and intend to graduate in June of 2017. I began my time at UO as an Art major and have since then made the transition into the Art and Technology major. I love working in both traditional and  non-traditional medias and always attempt to let my passions for both guide me in my work. As an artist and designer, my interests lie mainly in print media and visual communication. I also have a huge appreciation for fine art and recently declared an Art History minor. I have loved my
time in the Art Department here at UO and am really looking forward to seeing where my skills and education will take
me after I graduate!


My name is Teddy Tsai and after transitioning from two years in
political science and psychology I am happy to have the privilege to serve as one of your Peer Advisors for the Art and Art Technology majors. Since declaring my major I’ve enjoyed the many resources our department has had to offer and have extended my practice abroad with my fellow Art students. A focus is something I’ve yet to decide on, however one thing I can be sure of is my passion for the new and challenging regardless of artistic association. When I’m not wandering the halls of
Lawrence I enjoy working with the UO students in other communities, such as the Clark Honors College and the University Housing. I find human interaction to be a fascinating thing and often look upon it as the inspiration for my work. As I enter a new year of exploration and growth, I look forward to meeting and learning with every one of you.


11:00 am – 12:00 pm, Monday-Thursday

11:00 am – 1:00 pm, Friday

Please drop by the Art Office at 198 Lawrence Hall during these hours if you want to meet with a peer advisor.

Inside Africa Event

We, the African Students Association (ASA) will be hosting our annual event, Inside Africa. Inside Africa is fast approaching Saturday February 13, 2016. This event will be held from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the Global Scholars Hall Great Room at the University of Oregon (UO)

Every year our Annual event, Inside Africa has a theme of showcasing successful African community members, as well as creating an open dialogue among University of Oregon students to current affairs and news pertaining to the continent of Africa.

Our goal is to celebrate Africa, its people, culture and heritage, while overcoming the common stereotypes society holds of Africa. During the course of the night, the audience will have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers Habib Iddrisu and Andre Djiffack . The event promotes peace, love, and cultural awareness as we celebrate our traditions and share our cultures with students and the local community. Each year various members of the Oregon community and students from various backgrounds come to celebrate and engage in our discussions. We expect an audience of 70 to 80 people, which is what the attendance rate has been in previous years. Our event is free and open to all members of the community.
