It is with thoughtful consideration that WSU Pullman has decided to suspend all daily campus tours, visitation events (Experience WSU, Transfer Alive!, and Preview for Juniors), and group visits in response to the evolving COVID-19 environment. We are working diligently to provide virtual methods of these programs and will have more information available the week of March 23. To learn more about WSU’s continued response to COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 information page.
