Eli Abramovitz is an Oregon native. Born and raised in Portland, Eli resided in the “Rose City” for the majority of his life. Upon his acceptance to the University of Oregon, he decided to move to Eugene in order to obtain his college education. One of two children, Eli has one younger sister, Kira, who is 18 and is currently attending the University of Idaho.
As a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, Eli has enjoyed the four years he has lived in Eugene. As a fan of many sports, he particularly likes the University of Oregon because it is sports oriented school. True to his Oregon native style, Eli enjoys being active and adventurous and spends his time with friends. His hobbies include camping and playing sports. He is a member of the soccer, frisbee, volleyball and softball intramural sports teams at the university.
Growing up in Oregon, Eli is no stranger to the rain; however, walking to classes in the rain is one aspect of college in Eugene that he does not particularly care for. In his leisure time, Eli enjoys traveling. During Spring Break, Eli and friends escaped the unpredictable Oregon climate by making a several hundred mile road trip along the Pacific Coast, ending up in Southern California. This summer Eli and his family are planning a trip to Hawaii, which has become a family tradition.
When choosing a college, Eli narrowed his search down to the University of Oregon, Oregon State University and the University of Colorado. After touring the two Oregon schools and seeing the tuition rates for an out of state student in Colorado, he decided that the University of Oregon was the best fit. While pursuing his Bachelors in General Social Science and Business he is also working on two minors. He will graduate this summer with his Bachelor’s and minors in both Journalism and Digital Arts.
Prior to college, Eli was a student athlete who was also an active member on his high school student council. He was elected Senior Class President twice his senior year allowing him to fill the position the entire year. As Class President, Eli enjoyed being a leader and a voice of the school.
In both work and school, Eli has demonstrated leadership and responsibility. He has held many jobs over the years, the list includes but is not limited to: gardening, waiter, warehouse worker, retail associate at Pacsun and teacher’s assistant at his Synagogue. Upon graduation, he plans to move back to the Portland area, with a desire to ultimately end up in Southern California. He would enjoy a marketing position with a young company where he and the company can grow together. When its all said and done, Eli would like to throw in the towel and retire to Hawaii.
