“Thank you” seems entirely inadequate when we try to express the level of gratitude we have for you. The members of the WSU Alumni Association provide the fuel, passion, enthusiasm, and motivation for everything we do. Without you and WSU, we don’t exist. Keeping that fact in mind, we knew we needed to go big. A simple thank-you note would not do. We needed an entire month to get our point across.

The month of May is our second annual Member Appreciation Month, powered by BECU. From May 1 to 31, the Alumni Association is offering a bunch of exciting and exclusive members-only opportunities, such as the New Cosmic Crisp® Cider Exploration: A Virtual Cider Tasting Event with 2 Towns Ciderhouse, a Cougar Collectors’ Series wine sale, an exclusive online shop, and members-only shopping opportunities at the Nike, Columbia, and Adidas employee stores. Plus, this entire edition of Washington State Magazine is mailed only to WSUAA members. And there’s much more.

BECU and the WSUAA make an incredible team. BECU cares for its members as much as the Alumni Association cares for our members. Any other type of partnership would not do justice to our members-first focus. We thank BECU for making our Member Appreciation Month possible. We invite you to check out what BECU has to offer members of the WSUAA.

“Members Make the Difference” is not just a tagline, it is a statement of fact. The purpose of the WSU Alumni Association is to help members connect with their alma mater. Members make a very real and substantial difference to WSU and Cougs everywhere. For all that and so much more, we dedicate the month of May to you, our members.
