2006 — Western Oregon University Oral History Project
January – March
Oral History Project
The history of Western Oregon University cannot be captured in text and physical artifact alone. The oral stories that tell of a time past-stories that come about through conversation contribute to the thread that weaves WOU together.
This exhibit represents a small sampling of interviews carried out by the education 312: teachers, schools, and society class. Each student interviewed one or two Western Oregon University graduates who attended this institution. Even though the name of the university has changed a number of times throughout its 150-year history, one thing remains the same. Teachers and graduates of this institution continue to speak highly of their experience here.
