December 2020

Hello alumni and readers. Happy holidays! I hope this holiday season finds you happy, healthy and warm. As we round the corner into a new year I like to reflect on the last year, like many of us do. In the e-newsletter I share some highlights from the year and the success we have had during our virtual events in 2020, be sure to check that section out for some  cool information. As crazy as 2020 has been, there has been a lot of good to come out of it as well. I hope your year ahead is full of happiness, prosperity and health. 

Hard to believe November is already behind us. It was a busy month but full of fun events and seeing friendly faces on the screen. Get the recap of the month’s happenings below. 

Senior Kickoff

On Nov. 10 a group of about 40 eager WOU seniors logged into Zoom to get the scoop on their upcoming graduation. Campus partners such as Financial Aid, the Registrar’s Office, SLCD and others presented to the group to share what needs to be done within their departments to graduate. The students were engaged and asked poignant,  direct questions to make sure they understood what steps to take to graduate. A special thank you goes out to our campus partners who helped make this event happen and to Jostens for logging in and helping us help our students! 

Education Career Connect 

Alumni Relations and SLCD partnered up to present the latest in the Career Connect series on Nov. 18. A fantastic panel of alumni in the education field joined WOU students to answer their questions and share their professional experiences. The students enjoyed hearing from alumni and how their got into their current careers while receiving advice and getting valuable information from alumni. Thank you to SLDC for your collaboration, we look forward to the next Career Connect event.
