Welcome to Student Media

Welcome to Wolf Den Media, Western Oregon University’s Student Media. Wolf Den Media is student-funded through IFC funds. We have a weekly newspaper (through the school year) called The Western Howl. A internet radio station called KWOU and a literary publication called The Northwest Passage.


The Western Howl is WOU’s weekly newspaper. This award-winning newspaper is written, edited and printed by students. Print issues are distributed on campus on Wednesdays while updates are added daily online at https://www.wou.edu/westernhowl/


KWOU is Western Oregon University’s student-run internet radio station. Featuring student DJs and engaging programs, interviews, and specials, KWOU is emerging as WOU students’ favorite radio station. http://wou.edu/kwou


The Northwest Passage is WOU’s campus literary and arts publication, published three times each academic year. Submissions are sought for stories, poetry, photography and more. Submissions vary by issue.
