  • Go, Annie, go! This is Annie Reed's '15 final leg of the #hoodtocoast. She used to run with @wou_xctf before she graduated with her bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies, with focuses in health and social science.
"I loved being part of the xc/track teams at WOU. I got there as a community college transfer student and felt right at home. Being part of the team really made me feel like I had a large family, and having a small school meant getting to know professors and other students in your program. I’m from a small town and it was nice to be in a place where I could see familiar faces!" #howlaboutit #htc18 #wouwolves
  • Here is Mike Walsh, one of the team captains, taking off on the first Hood to Coast leg. Go, Mike!

  • Our official Hood to Coast team, Peter and the Western Oregon Wolves, is prepping for a wonderful weekend. Anyone else out there running or driving teams this weekend? Let us know if you see our team! #howlaboutit #htc18 #hoodtocoast
  • Feeling nostalgic for all of the friends who joined us on campus a year ago for the eclipse. Being in the path of totality was spectacular. 🌑

So many of you generously support the university, and our students, through your gifts. We want to thank you! All together, your gifts for the last academic year totaled more than $1.87 million! That is AMAZING! We want you to see how your support helps to grow WOU. As new students have moved on campus and we prepare for a new year to begin on Monday, we want to share our gratitude with you.With your support, we have many new scholarships planned for WOU students, not the least of which are the funds slated to help underserved students who plan to study the science, technology, mathematics and education in these fields.If you'd like to help make 2018-19 even better, we would love your support over at wou.edu/give. Gifts of all sizes make an impact.THANK YOU! ...

Today, we join Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in celebrating 10 years of the Monmouth OHSU School of Nursing campus.In the past decade, OHSU has graduated 238 nurses from the program on our campus. A new group of 32 nurses begin the program today with the annual white coat ceremony.We reached back into our archives and found fun photos from the program's opening celebration in 2008, including a picture of the very first cohort of students. And we have some photos from today's celebration to share.Any alums from the program? We would love to hear from you in the comments! ...
