What’s Happening


One of our MIS students wanted to grab their diploma from Winter term so that they could leave to home. We practiced extreme social distancing, but I’m super glad we were able to still deliver this service. Way to go Ahmed Alghaleb! (He gave us permission to post this.) ...

  • Welcome to spring term, Wolves! This spring term is not like the ones you're used to, but departments all over campus are working hard to make it a fantastic one. From digital access to services to virtual events and programs - there will be a lot of great things happening.

Keep an eye on our social media and your campus email to learn what's happening. Not getting student emails? Log into your Portal and make sure you're opted into the various categories for emails.

Also, we'd love it if you used #WOUremote to share your spring term experience. From selfies in your WOU gear to your home study spot to sharing what you're learning in class - we'd love to see it on the hashtag.

  • Kathy Cassity, dean of our College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and an English professor, shared some wisdom with us. “Dramatic irony reminds us that if we could view situations from an angle larger than our own and consider all that we alone cannot see, we would probably draw different conclusions and make different decisions. We are all trapped by our own subjectivity.” #HowlAboutIt #WOUremote
  • Just a reminder that spring term starts Wednesday (not today). We’re excited to have you in class! You should be hearing from your faculty soon, if not already, about how your spring classes will be delivered. #WOUremote
  • Looking for a fun activity for you and/or your kids? We've got just the thing: Wolfie coloring pages!

Starting today, we'll release a new page every Monday. Visit and click the "Wolfie coloring pages" button.

We'd love it if you shared with us the finished product. Grab your crayons, colored pencils or Apple pencil and get to coloring. Tag us on your favorite social media platform when you're finished.

#WOUremote #HowlAboutIt
  • Wolfie encourages his fellow Wolves to practice social distancing. Six feet is about the width of many sedan style cars. But, please, stay home as much as possible. #StayHomeSaveLives
  • Several faculty and staff members shared lessons from their disciplines that can help us during current uncertainty. Paul Disney from the Business and Economics Division shared, “Crises provide an opportunity for people to come to know one another and establish bonds that will endure long after the crisis is over.”
  • @woucampusrecreation is launching live fitness classes on Instagram live!
Tune in at 5:30pm Monday-Thursday starting April 6 and join your favorite instructor! 
  • Our Campus Public Safety director, Rebecca Chiles, and Student Health and Counseling Center medical director, Jennifer King, donated masks from WOU to West Valley to support our local healthcare workers in being able to protect themselves as they help our community. #HowlAboutIt
