Andrew Holbert

Veterans Services Coordinator, Veterans Resource Center

503-838-9246 | Holberta@wou.edu | WUC – room 108 | 8:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m.

I am the Veterans Services Coordinator. I served four years in the United States Marine Corps and was stationed in Twentynine Palms, CA. Originally I enlisted as an Amphibious Assault Vehicle Crewman (1833), however, because I was stationed in 29 Palms, CA and the nature of the wars I was reassigned as an interim infantryman. I was a squad point man for a foot mobile unit while deployed to Iraq.

I separated in July 2011 and began my college career a month later at Corban University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. As a student-veteran, I noticed the struggles unique to my background. During my four years at Corban I initiated, developed, and led the University’s first veterans program. I have lived in Oregon since I separated.  I am married and have 3 children.

I am a Computer Science major, and have been attending WOU since 2014 and am expecting to graduate in 2018. I served for 6 years in the Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician and was stationed at Naval Station Mayport with HSM-40 and at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island with VP-1.

As a student-veteran, I am the President of our Student Veterans of America chapter and have served our student body both as a student senator (ASWOU Senator of the Year 2015 – 2016) and as a member of the judicial board for the Associated Students of Western Oregon University (ASWOU). Upon graduating from WOU, I plan on seeking employment within the tech industry where I can utilize my degree and my experience as a veteran.
