WOU Hits the Capitol on University Day

February 29, 2016

About 200 people sitting on a wide staircase



Hundreds of university students, faculty, and staff from universities across Oregon gathered at the state capitol to meet with their legislators.

They were there to talk about the important contributions made to the state through these institutions of high education.

TRI was proud to be part of the Western Oregon University contingent, and to represent WOU at our table just off the capitol rotunda.





WOU represented in many legislators' offices


It was very exciting to discover how many of our local legislators, along with their staff and interns, were associated with WOU, either as alumni or by being currently enrolled in classes in WOU's Politics, Policy, and Administration Department.


We had a great day and made many new friends.
