My name is Micah Howe
I am an Admissions Counselor at Western Oregon University. I'm glad you are interested in learning more about WOU! There are a number of exciting options available in higher education and I truly enjoy helping students explore them.
I am a Seattle native, but I love living in the Willamette Valley and am proud to call Oregon my home now. I completed my bachelor's degree at Gonzaga University, where I studied human resource management, sociology, and women's studies. During college, I was involved in student government, new student orientation, and a number of other activities. I recently received a master's degree in college student affairs from Penn State University. Now, I am thrilled to be back on the West Coast and look forward to working with prospective WOU students from California, Arizona, and New Mexico.
In my free time, I enjoy going to indie concerts, judging high school dance team competitions, reading non-fiction, and traveling (both domestic and international).
Best of luck with your college search process. Go Wolves!
Out of State: Arizona, California, and New Mexico
