Western Oregon University College Democrats


The Western Oregon University College Democrats are a group of enthusiastic WOU students who believe in the message of the Democratic Party.

Acting as the official outreach arm of the Democratic Party on campus, it is also our goal to educate fellow students on ways to get involved in the political process on the local, state, national, and campus levels. The group has been active on campus since 2003.



Western Oregon University College Republicans


Like they’re counterparts WOUCD, WOUCR has been active on campus throughout the last forty-six years. The group was once called the “Young Republicans” when it was first documented in “The Grove” (Western’s year book).

Since those early days of the 1960s, the group has come
to be known as the Western Oregon University College Republicans. The last few years have seen increased activity on campus; from attending national conferences,
to holding bi-weekly meetings in the Werner Center.
