Founded in 1890 as Washington’s first land-grant university and now one of America’s leading public research institutions, WSU is known for its friendly, spirited environment; its highly motivated student body; a worldwide alumni network that supports graduates transitioning from classroom to career; and research that targets critical national and global challenges.
“There are so many opportunities for growth at WSU that the choice was obvious for me. Also, the small-town feel is unmatched.”
“I knew I needed to be somewhere that had a good community and felt secure to me, being so far away from home, and I found that with WSU.”
“My sister is also a Coug, and since we have a 10-year difference between us, I essentially grew up as a Coug. WSU always had a piece of my heart, and Pullman is my second home. I love the culture and environment here.”
“Pullman and WSU were the perfect blend of a big college feel but also a small, unique community, which was exactly what I was looking for.”
“I chose WSU for the community environment. There is so much love and support for Cougs everywhere, even after you graduate.”
“WSU has provided me with so many resources and opportunities, I feel very prepared for life after college. Plus, I love that I get a “Go Cougs” anywhere I am in the world if I’m wearing my Coug gear.”
