Students say…



Veteran • Masters in Special Education

I plan on working at a rural school as a special education teacher. I want to have the opportunity to make a difference for students who may not have as many resources as they need, and may require additional resources. I want to ensure they will get the help they need.



Education: Mid/High Social Science major

My career goal is to become a high school teacher. I enjoy hanging with friends and playing video games. My favorite memory of my first year at WOU is meeting new people and just chilling on campus.



Psychology and Spanish (double major)

My career goal is to become a mental health counselor or a clinical psychologist. Some of my favorite involvements on campus have included going to sports games when I am free, giving campus tours, and talking to any peer in class!
