INSIGHTS - University Housing Newsletter
Whether you are a parent, family member or friend of a current resident looking for information on just exactly what your student or friend and the community that they live and learn in is up to this current year. Or you are a parent or family member of a student who will be attending WOU (and living on campus) in the coming year(s) and are curious about what life in the residence halls might look like for your student. If it is information you are after, Insights, the University Housing newsletter, will be a good place to start.
Insights should do just that - give you some insight into the programs, information, and timelines that will work to shape your student and their experience while living on campus at Western Oregon University. As issues become available, they will be posted quarterly here. In this issue, you will find resources for both you and your student as you tackle this new chapter in life, important dates and information and hopefully learn a bit yourself along the way. Take a look - gain some Insight!
