  • Happy Earth Day! We're so grateful for the little slice of Earth our campus sits on. And a big part of that are our beautiful trees and flowers.🌳
Have you heard about our Arbor Day celebration this Friday? It begins at noon just south of the Cottage. Join us on a short walking tour to admire the campus trees and and participate in the planting of new ones. #earthday #arborday #treecampususa
  • We kind of have a thing for tulips. What's your favorite flower on campus? 🌷
  • We're too excited to see your videos so we opened the contest a day early! Details and entry form (and a downloadable graphic to help you spread the word) are over at wou.edu/whyilovewou.
Or, DM us and we'll reply with a tappable link. #whyilovewou

  • Spring break news from @mechadewou: "Just finished the national conference of “mecha” in UCLA!! It was a privilege to be able to be in a space where a lot of incredible leaders and community members from all over the nation expressed their opinions on certain subjects. To know more about what we did, come to our mecha meeting and/or wait for a surprise post coming up ;) #ucla #empowerment"

  • Spring break means our Alternative Break teams are out serving in the community! Our teams are currently in Canada focusing on Educational Access, in Salinas working with Migrant Communities, and in San Francisco focusing on Food and Housing Security! 🐾

  • Is spring break over yet? We miss you!
