Dalai Lama could make Eugene visit

The Register-Guard: Will he or won’t he? Perhaps only His Holiness the Dalai Lama knows for sure. The Oregonian newspaper reported Wednesday on its website that the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will visit Portland for a second time -- and Eugene for the first time -- in May. Sponsors of the renowned Buddhist monk’s visit to Eugene on May 10 reportedly include the University of Oregon and the Nyen-Gyud Samten Choe Ling Center, a study and meditation organization ... when the time comes, the logical venue will be Matt Knight Arena on the UO campus ... UO spokesman Phil Weiler said Wednesday he’s aware of general plans to bring the Dalai Lama to Eugene in the spring but didn’t have details.

Swoosh, there it is

The Daily Emerald: In the days following the Ducks’ 38-6 loss to the Colorado Buffaloes in the 1996 Cotton Bowl, five men sat down in Dallas, Texas, to discuss the future of athletics at the University of Oregon ... With open minds and open checkbooks, the five of them agreed that, with enough support, athletics at the UO could reach unseen heights ... “It’s important to make a distinction between Knight’s relationship with the University and Nike’s relationship with the University,” says Dan Williams, former University vice president and interim athletic director for the ’94-’95 school year ... In fact, Nike’s contract with the UO isn’t much different than any other contract it has with other universities.

University of Oregon Knight Library welcomes use beyond academic community

The Oregonian: You could spend a lifetime in it and still barely scratch the surface of all the information stored in the University of Oregon's Knight Library. Staff at the library told me that Oregonians not connected to the university can also use the library ... It's a public building and the public is invited to use it. Residents of Oregon may borrow up to 10 items for a three-week duration ... Knight Library contains 3 million volumes. It is the main library of six on the campus, with two others in Portland and Charleston. The university also maintains an online data base that will help visitors find what they want before traveling to the campus.
