January 2022

Hello, readers, Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season was joyous and filled with fun, food, family and friends. As we begin 2022, we have the opportunity to reflect back on the last year and set goals and priorities for the year in front of us. This year we look forward to seeing more of you in person at events and around the university and hopefully having more of you from around the globe tune into our virtual After Hour networking events. We plan on hosting more alumni events in regions outside of Salem, Monmouth and Portland and will be introducing the new president later this year as well. There is a lot brewing for WOU in 2022 and we can’t wait to see you. 

Regions we plan on visiting this year include: 

  • Albany 
  • Central Oregon 
  • Eastern Oregon
  • The Gorge 
  • Idaho 
  • Central coast 
  • Texas (with the new move to the Lone Star Conference) 

Events to look forward this year include: 

  • A campus musical or theater performance 
  • The Wolves Athletic Auction 
  • Wolves on the Green Golf Tournament 
  • What’s new at WOU receptions in many regions 
  • Monthly After Hours events in various regions 
  • Homecoming and Hall of Fame Weekend 
  • Giving Day 
  • Much more to come! 

Cheers to starting a new year and to new adventures, we can’t wait to reconnect with you this year.
