The New Coug Experience at WSU Pullman
While WSU Pullman is planning for a different kind of Coug Experience, it will still be an experience filled with communities of support and resources to promote your academic and personal success.
Our plans can and will change if needed to ensure the health and safety of our WSU community. We will rely on each Coug—on YOU—to reduce the spread of COVID and to keep all students, faculty, staff, and communities healthy.
As always, Go Cougs!
