November 2018

Hello alumni and friends! I hope this fall is starting of well for all of you. I for one am excited about the official start of the holiday season. To me it means family, friends, and food, all of which are my favorite things. I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you at the Holiday Tree Lighting on November 30!

We have some great activities taking place in November. On the 13th WOU Alumni Relations is hosting a “one stop shopping” event for soon to be graduates where they will hear from departments like the Registrar’s Office, Financial Aid, Jostens, SLCD, and more. It’s a how to graduate seminar and we’re expecting approximately 150 seniors to attend. On the 30th we will be hosting Alumni Day in conjunction with the Holiday Tree Lighting. Attendees will enjoy food, drinks, tours, holiday cheer and more! Be sure to check out the agenda and details on the web page. Anyone coming to town for the Tree Lighting and/or Alumni Day can reserve a room at either Gentle or Butler Hall! A reservation form will be published soon.    

Homecoming and Wolves Reunion Weekend

October was all about Homecoming! We celebrated alumni and friends for two days and we laughed, we cried, we heard from the new WOU Chamber Singers and Choral Ensembles, we saw old friends and had an all around great weekend together. In all, more than 100 alumni and friends came to campus for Homecoming and enjoyed activities. The Golden Wolves, our class of 1968, were all smiles and shared some fantastic stories. They looked sharp in their special Golden Wolves gear, which was generously supplied by fellow 1968 graduate Ron DeVolder. Check out the photos below to see some of the highlights from Homecoming and Wolves Reunion Weekend 2018. We look forward to hosting you in 2019!
