Have you filled out the census yet? Use the town you spend the majority of your time in when filling it out. For example, if you live in an apartment or rent house while attending school in Alva, use Alva as that town. Each town counts on everyone to fill it out to be represented.

As of June 8, 2020, the Census self-response rate for Woods County was 50.0%. Woods County could lose $7,077,542 over the next 10 years with just a 2% undercount.

Just a fun item that popped into the Notifications today making a perfect #FlashbackFriday. Our beautiful building was known as Science Hall for a number of years before changing to Fine Arts. The building's windows have now been replaced, and during the fall 2019 semester it was renamed Ryerson Hall.

Woods County - The Science Hall is the oldest remaining building on the campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Northwestern Oklahoma State University is the second oldest institution of higher learning established by the Oklahoma territorial legislature. Established in 1897 as a normal school, it expanded 25 years later to a four year college offering degrees in science, liberal arts, and teaching. The Science Hall was the second building on campus, with the cornerstone being set in 1906. It contained a library, gymnasium, and lecture hall with seating for 300 students. Plus, the mascot of Northwestern Oklahoma State University is the Ranger, so how could we not feature them? ~ ih

Really great community and I like how it really looks out for the students. While being away from college left me discouraged at first, I’ve been able to find different ways to stay entertained, and Film Festival Flix has been a huge help. The streaming service houses an array of independent films, many of which have award nominations. From comedies with unique sense of humor, to informational documentaries. The features on the platform are what I feel really sets it apart, that being the streaming channels, film collections, and my personal favorite, the virtual film festivals. The Ashland Film Festival is going on right now and wraps up in just four days. With it coming to an end, I’ve had a great experience and if it weren’t for Film Festival Flix, I’m not sure how I would have been able to attend.
How can you help the well-being of your community??? The Census Bureau's ongoing surveys assist in measuring the economic impact of pandemics and other emergencies, creating plans for the country's eventual recovery. #NationalEMSWeek recognizes the work that EMS workers provide to communities and without Census data, EMS workers would not have the information needed to respond to emergencies quickly and effectively. Respond today at 2020Census.gov to make sure your community is prepared for any emergency. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKgeweuen4o
Need a summer job? 2020 Census Takers Needed - -WE NEED YOU to APPLY!!! Once operations for the 2020 Census resume, we will need thousands of workers to contact residents concerning their constitutional duty of completing the census. Census data helps communities thrive. Most Census takers will be delivering paper copies to homes that do not have physical addresses with a note to the residents to fill out the paper form and return by mail. No personal contact needed! Help your community by applying for a Census job at 2020census.gov/jobs. #AmericaCounts En cuanto las operaciones del #Censo2020 empiecen de nuevo, necesitaremos miles de empleados para cumplir con nuestro deber Constitucional de responder el censo. Los datos del censo ayudan a las comunidades a prosperar. Ayuda a tu comunidad solicitando empleo en el censo en el 2020census.gov/Jobs. #DaleFormaATuFuturo
