  • Congratulations to our two InstaStories winners, Maya Wolf and Cody Welty! We hope you both enjoy your drinks and wish you luck with the rest of term. We asked them both what their spring break plans were: Maya hopes to catch up on sleep and Cody’s gearing up for grad school to take his Psychology degree to the next level. Whether you’re letting yourself hit the snooze button, applying to your dream grad school, or traveling, we hope your spring break is a much deserved break from term. See you all in Spring! #howlaboutit #WolfBites
  • Perfect evening to do some studying for finals outside.
  • This is how a WOU History degree helped one of our alums. Will you be among our future alumni? #wearewou
  • Earning a History degree will set you up for a variety of careers, like a museum curator, archivist, history K-12 teacher, college professor, and much more. Are you considering a History degree? What do you plan to do with it? History alums, chime in and let us know how you're using yours. #wearewou #howlaboutit
  • Since students are busy with finals and projects this week, we went around and asked this week’s #WolfBites to campus employees. Our question? “How can students stay motivated through finals?” For some, mastering finals required a boatload of caffeine. For others, it was all about the music. #howlaboutit
  • This morning, a large group of WOU students, employees and community members gathered for #nationalwalkoutday. *
Student Lila Gardner led the organization effort on campus (second photo). She told us, "The thought that I had when I started to organize this was just to get as much support and solidarity as we could get for future students at WOU. If students in this area weren't having walkouts at their own school, they would at least see a university near them that would support them if they decided to be an activist."
  • We can't wait to share with you lots of info about our History program this week: careers you can pursue, grads who have completed the program, and what current students are up to. Plus, the faculty you'd get to know in the program. #wearewou
  • We're in the West Region Championship tomorrow! Be there 🐾 #wouwolves
