In the uncertain space between adolescence and adulthood, there’s college. We came to the University of Oregon to study, socialize and learn who we are. Mixed in amid the stress and chaos of being an undergrad, there are the writers, the observers, the ones who aren’t afraid to say what everyone else was thinking. They are the ones who want to make meaning of these years, condense it with a pen, dissect, destroy and recreate it.

Quackd is their platform to tell the stories that make us laugh, cry and everything in between. It’s a catalog of our most candid thoughts, stories and voices. They say a writer is the sum of his or her experiences, and these are ours.

This is Quackd.
