  • Welcoming Students into Our Coug Family!

    Published on: July 27, 2017

    As we welcome nearly 4500 new students into our Coug family, it is important to reflect what type of environment we as student affairs professionals create. The initial transition to campus can be a shock compared to what students are used to. New students are encountering things for the first time: new emotions, experiences, friendships as they transition to Cougs. Our role as student affairs professionals is to engage students in a transformative university experience which prepares them for success at WSU and after graduation.

  • Connections to Campus

    Published on: July 27, 2017

    As we gear up to welcome our new and returning Cougs, I have been reflecting on how to best connect students to other offices in order for them to find a space on campus that is their own. Assisting our incoming students with finding a home and place for themselves at WSU is imperative to their success. With each student comes a different story, different experiences, different expectations, and different needs. Of course, these needs and expectations are seldom directly communicated to us. Instead, by getting to know students as we do, we learn what excites them and how to connect them to the opportunities that may provide them a home away from home. The options abound in what students can do here at WSU. From over 300 student organizations to on-campus jobs to engaging with the greater Pullman community, there is something for everyone!
