  • Ethan Novak, from Imperial, California, completed an Elementary Master of Arts in Teaching. He shares what he loves most about WOU:

    "Throughout my grad program, I truly felt like all of my professors were invested in my development as an educator. They were quick to respond to questions, they listened to feedback, and they were great about considering which learning experiences would be most impactful for my cohort. Having professors like that–ones who are truly dedicated to the profession–makes a world of difference for students at WOU."

  • Caitlyn, from Honolulu, Hawaii, just graduated with a bachelor's in business and will be starting her Master's of Business Administration in the fall!

    She has some advice for future Wolves:

    "Take advantage of the whole ‘starting over’ phase. This is the chance to challenge yourselves, explore your options, and prove to others what you all are capable of doing. It’s like getting a second chance at re-doing everything because you’re placed in a different environment in a different community with different people from different places from all around the world.

    Come to college with an open mind because you all get to learn more about yourselves and discover what your interests are. This is truly the time where you all want to thrive not just survive."

    Dear WOU community,

    I am devastated to learn that missing WOU student Karissa Fretwell, and her young son, have been found deceased.

I know our community will come together and support each other in this difficult time.

  • Alison Nelke, from Albany, Oregon, will be graduating with a bachelor’s in Business and an Accounting concentration, as well as a minor in History.

    "I was a captain and 4-year member of the WOU women’s basketball team. I also worked for the Athletic department to set up and run sports games. Since spring 2017, I have been a tutor specializing in accounting courses and study skills.

    Basketball dictated a large portion of my time on campus, but taught me incredible lessons in work ethic, leadership, conflict resolution, and time management. Being a tutor was an unexpected opportunity that helped me discover how much I enjoy teaching. I hope to one day become a professor after working in the accounting field. Tutoring at WOU showed me how fulfilling tutoring and teaching can be."

  • We were at the Oregon Capitol today with the other TRUs (technical & regional universities) to talk with legislators about the importance of funding public universities in our state.

    We heard from students, like Felicia from ASWOU - Associated Students of Western Oregon University, about the challenges students face in funding their education.

    We also had the pleasure of listening to the Chamber Singers perform the national anthem in the Senate Chamber.

    And our local representative Paul Evans, a former ASWOU president, joined us. We were excited to have three current/former ASWOU presidents in one place.

    Thanks to all who participated today! It was great to be with our EOU, SOU and Oregon Tech friends to support education.
