Family & Supporter Farewell Presentations

New Student Programs will host a Family & Supporter Farewell presentation throughout the first half of move-in.  Families and supporters, who will be dropping their students off at WSU-Pullman, are invited to a presentation that will answer the question, “what’s next for me and my Coug?”. You will hear from campus partners about ways to support your Coug at a distance, safety and security, and how you can continue being involved as an important champion for your favorite Coug.

The same presentation will be offered several times a day so you can select the best session for you and your family.

All families dropping off students for the first time to the WSU-Pullman campus are welcome to join.
