It’s a familiar promise around WSU: Cougs help Cougs.
There a number of ways to fulfill that promise during the COVID-19 pandemic, from supporting students to giving your time. And we can expand that generosity to our communities, as well. Below are a few suggestions of places and ways you might be able to help out.
Each WSU campus has a Student Emergency Fund to help students struggling during this crisis.
The pandemic is taking an economic toll as well, so you may want to support scholarships.
Cougs Feeding Cougs is an ongoing effort to make sure no WSU student goes hungry.
