  • Eight WOU custodians are cleaning twenty-eight buildings every night and they need our help! Please place your trash can outside of your office door when you need it emptied and put it back inside the next day. That saves valuable time and energy and helps mitigate against the staffing shortage. (Emily Plec on behalf of Custodial Services)
