  • We're halfway through finals week. Remember to take some time for yourself, eat a snack, take a brain break and a few deep breaths!
  • @thewestofus caroling over at @javacrewmonmouth. 🎶🎄(post from @javacrewmonmouth)
  • We're sending love to all in Alaska and the loved ones of those up north.
  • Have you seen what's on its way to Monmouth? @carlsjr is going in at the empty lot at the corner of Main St. and 99, next to @monmouthdutch.
  • Today we got the opportunity to celebrate undergrads and faculty working together on research with the first ever Sharing Undergrad Research Experiences (SURE). 📚
If you're an undergrad looking for research experience, talk to your professors. There are tons of opportunities on our campus to get involved. Here, you don't need to wait until grad school to get research experience.
The next SURE event is in March. And we'll celebrate even more research and experiential learning in May with the annual Academic Excellence Showcase. #howlaboutit #wouaes
  • The 51st annual Holiday Tree Lighting is only two weeks away! Our Facilities Services crew put the lights up this week and took a bit of video while up in the bucket, giving us an amazing view of campus not many of us get to see. 🎄#wouhtl #howlaboutit
  • Oregon State Credit Union continues their legacy of giving. We're so thankful for their 15+ years and nearly $50,000 in support of our students through their presidential scholarship. 🏦🎓

  • Today we join in the national celebration of first-generation college students. 🎓
If you're on campus, come to the Advising Center to grab your first-gen button, snacks, a selfie, and share your first-gen story.
Off campus? DM us your first gen story or reply to the prompt in our Insta Story. We want to share your stories and celebrate you!
Today marks the 53rd anniversary of the signing of the 1965 Higher Education Act (HEA), which has helped millions of poor students become the first members of their families to earn college degrees.
