University Day at the COE

For more than 100 years, faculty, staff, students and friends of the UO have celebrated the beauty of the campus by weeding, planting and spreading mulch to have the grounds sparkling just in time for graduation.

Sure, I had my own political leanings and always voted in presidential elections but never bothered to vote in a local or midterm election. I had never marched or attended a town hall meeting.
