The Student Arm of the Democratic Party


The official student arm of the Democratic Party, the College Democrats of Oregon (CDO) serves as a source of ideas, organization, and activism directed towards supporting students at universities and colleges in Oregon. 


The CDO continuously aims to uphold Democratic ideals by rallying behind causes and candidates that align with the values that they represent. We help students get involved in campaigns for individuals and causes that students care about. The CDO partners with the Democratic Party of Oregon in including our members in their statewide caucus systems. 


Students gain experience in campus, local, state, or national politics through voter education, voter registration, voter turnout effort, and by aiding candidates or campaigns aligned with the ideals found within the platform, heritage, or future directions of the Democratic Party
