1. Attend a football game at Autzen Stadium

Football is not for everyone, but going to football game during college is a really great experience. Enjoy at least one game while you have the chance.

2. Float the Willamette River

The Willamette river may be freezing, but during summer it is tons of fun to get a group of friends and float down it.

3. Get a drink at Taylor's Bar and Grill

Taylor's is basically a right of passage for every University of Oregon college student, even if you don't like the bar scene. Maybe just go once so you can say you've been.

4. Hike Spencer's Butte

Spencer's Butte is a beautiful hike that everyone living in Eugene should experience at least once. It is even more special if you go at sunrise or sunset.

5. Attend a tailgate

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever.
