WSU Pullman-Up Close 

by Jessica Henry


Public. Location: Pullman, Wash. Founded: 1890. Student Body: 17,000. School Started: August 26. Tuition: $4,145 per year. Phone: 1-888-GOTO-WSU. Web: www.wsu.edu





Hangouts


Off-Campus: Students can always be found at Denny's having late-night study sessions. The local theaters also provide popular breaks from study, and the Daily Grind revs up tired student minds and gets them ready to study. Pete's Bar and Grill and Rico's Tavern are also popular hangouts.


On-Campus: With three dining centers, five markets, six espresso carts and seven dining locations in the CUB, there is never a shortage of places to find students hanging out. The Student Recreation Center is also a very popular place to gather.





Events


The Fall is full of Pac-10 athletic events, with football games, volleyball matches, soccer games and cross-country meets weekly. The Cougar football team takes on the U of I Vandals on Sept. 7 at Martin Stadium at 2 pm. Wynonna performs at the Beasley Coliseum on Sept. 23 at 7:30 pm. Homecoming is on Saturday, Oct. 5, with the Cougs taking on USC at 2 pm at Martin Stadium.





New in 2002


The Outdoor Recreation Center has opened a new office in the Student Recreation Center in order to allow more students access to outdoor adventures. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital is treating two very rare Snowy Owls from Alaska. WSU researchers topped the $100 million mark for projects researched over the past year.
