四、英文补充

1.Athletics

The University of Oregon is a member of the Pacific Ten Conference and Division I-A of the NCAA. The athletic programs have garnered 13 NCAA team championships,as well as 60 NCAA individual champions in various track and field events.The two primary rivals of the Oregon Ducks football team are the Washington Huskies and the Oregon State Beavers. The football rivalry with Oregon State University is one of the nation's oldest, known as the "Civil War". Every year, the two teams face off in the last game of the regular season. The two teams have faced each other nearly every year since 1894 with the exception of five years.
Not including club sports, the university competes in 14 sports: football, men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, track and field, wrestling, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, women’s lacrosse, and women’s volleyball.

With 12 NCAA championships between them, cross country and track and field are the two programs at the university that have enjoyed the most success. The programs have produced many world-class athletes including Steve Prefontaine and Alberto Salazar. Nike had been formed by the former track and field head coach Bill Bowerman and former University of Oregon track runner Phil Knight. The successes of the programs have given the name of Track Town, USA to Eugene.

Created in 1893, the football team played its first game in 1894 and won its first Rose Bowl in 1917 against the University of Pennsylvania. Then nicknamed the “Tall Firs”, the men's basketball team won the first-ever NCAA basketball tournament in 1939, defeating Ohio State in the championship game.

Originally recognized as an official sport at the university in 1908, baseball was disbanded in 1981 due to concerns with Title IX. In 2007, the athletic director Patrick Kilkenny announced plans to reinstate baseball and to drop wrestling while adding women’s competitive cheer.
The mascot of the University of Oregon is the fighting duck. The popular Disney character Donald Duck has been the mascot for decades, thanks to a handshake agreement made between Leo Harris and Walt Disney in 1947.The mascot has been challenged more than a few times in its lifetime. The first came in 1966 when Walt Disney died and the company realized there was no formal contract written for the use of Donald’s image. A formal contract was written up in 1973.Potential heirs Mallard Drake and Mandrake challenged Donald’s position in 1978 and 2003 respectively,though both were unpopular and discontinued.

The fight song is “Mighty Oregon”, written by a student in 1916 though it has undergone several changes since its original performance.

2.In popular culture

The film National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) was filmed on the university campus and the surrounding area. The building used as the exterior of the Delta House (which belonged to the University of Oregon Phi Sigma Kappa chapter) was demolished in 1986, but the interior scenes were shot in the Sigma Nu house, which still stands today. The Omega house belonged to the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and still stands today. The sorority house, where Bluto climbs the ladder to peek in on the coeds, was actually the exterior of the Sigma Nu fraternity.Other buildings that were used during filming include Johnson Hall, Gerlinger Hall, Fenton Hall, Carson Hall, and the Erb Memorial Union, in which the Fishbowl was the site of the famous food-fight scene. The Knight Library and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art can also be seen in the movie. Other films shot at the university include Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940), Five Easy Pieces (1971), Stand By Me -- shot primarily in nearby Brownsville, Oregon (1986), and Without Limits (1998).
