Inspiring Adventure Student Visits
“WSU is a welcoming community. Everyone genuinely loves this school and is proud to be here. It’s infectious. Everyone is wearing crimson, everyone is friendly, everyone is welcoming, and no one is excluded. It’s a true family, and it’s something you can really only experience here at WSU.” – Ben Wineman, WSU junior

Visiting WSU

Many of our students agree it was their first visit to WSU that confirmed their decision to attend. They knew as soon as they stepped foot on campus that WSU was the place for them.

Our beautiful campus, the friendly down-to-earth people, and the effervescent Cougar Spirit are all part of the package here at WSU. Experience what it’s like to hear the bells of Bryan Tower echoing around campus every hour, visit our residence halls and dining centers, and meet our amazing faculty and staff. Top it all off with some homemade ice cream or famous Cougar Gold cheese at Ferdinand’s Ice Cream Shoppe, located right on campus.

Check out our visit events, and witness what it’s like to be a Coug.
