We got some interesting news for you all today.  First, Kelly received a couple of nice pictures from Kiyomi and Kotaro, who are WOU alumni graduating in the years 1998 and 2000.  They are now marriedCONGRATULATIONS!!! We are sending you a fat hug from WOU.  New freshmen and sophomores may not meet them before, but those attending WOU earlier probably know perfectly who they are.  Check this out:


Neat pictures eh?  'Wonder if any of them is single and is coming to Monmouth ;) wink.... wink!

The second piece of this update is that ISO will fund us to get a new web host, so our site will be excitingly interactive.  You may notice the face of this site has not been changed since the last update. Stay tuned!  We will come up with a brand-new, sexy ISO site no later than Fall.

Enjoy your summer folks!


Update: 6-25-2003

    There will be complete change of interface on the website in the near future.  Nonetheless, some breath-taking features we discussed at the Officers meeting may not be implemented, as our school has not yet supported common Web languages.  The University Computing Service will possibly seek its decision on this matter next year.

    If you have experience in Scripting Languages, Flash, Dreamweaver, or Photoshop... and would like to help us beautify the face of ISO, please contact me via email: mnguyen@wou.edu.

    Any suggested solution for the web site is welcome.
