As the leaves begin to fall and autumn approaches, the WSU Alumni Association can’t wait for another exciting Coug football season! Whether you’re on the Palouse or across the country, the WSUAA has plenty of fun opportunities to stay connected and cheer on the Cougs.

If you are traveling to an away football game, make sure to check out the PreGame, the official tailgate event before the team takes the field. This year’s PreGames will be at Arizona State on October 28 and at Cal on November 11. To learn more and reserve your spot, visit

Can’t attend the game but want to watch it with fellow Cougs? Join WSU alums at a nearby Cougar Watch Party powered by BECU! Each week, WSUAA volunteers find the best Coug-friendly locations near you to gather with local fans nationwide. The official Watch Parties often offer drink and food specials, raffles, giveaways, and more. To find one near you, visit

Later this fall, the WSUAA is partnering with ASWSU, IFC/Panhellenic, and the Student Entertainment Board to bring you a reimagined Homecoming on October 13 and 14. The signature event for festivities surrounding the football game is a Pep Rally at the Lewis Alumni Centre, complete with fan interaction, local celebrities, a stage for live bands, and so much more. Visit to stay up-to-date with this year’s Homecoming festivities.

No matter where you are, you’re never far from fellow Cougs who want to meet up and cheer WSU to victory. To learn about all the ways you can stay connected with Cougs and WSU, visit
