During the holidays, friends and families gather together for fun festivities to ring in the New Year. Between getting home-baked cookies from Grandma to listening to crazy Uncle Joe’s stories about the “good ol’ days,” some Ducks found time to rally together and celebrate the season of giving.
The Korea Ducks Chapter gathered on December 5 for an annual dinner of meeting and mingling. Five decades of Oregon alumni came out to share Eugene stories and nostalgia with old friends and new.
The Shanghai Ducks had a social on December 11 where they met Vice Provost for International Affairs Dennis Galvan, University of Oregon Confucius Institute Executive Director Ina Asim, Co-Director Dr. Dai Lan, and Assistant Vice President for International Advancement John Manotti.
The DC Ducks hosted their annual National Chapter Holiday Party with live and silent auctions to benefit the National Capital Chapter’s Scholarship Fund.
And, lastly, the Idaho Ducks joined together for a laid back evening of socializing with fellow Ducks.
