ASWSU has many great ways to get involved that range from improving communication, working with the state legislature, all the way to housing in Pullman! We encourage any and all students to get engaged regardless of past involvement. The only qualification we look for is wanting to help Washington State University! Getting involved early on is a great way to meet friends in a close knit community, positively impact the different communities of Washington State University, and make tangible long-lasting change. Find what you're passionate about and don't hesitate to reach out! We look forward to working with you, and seeing the great change that you will help initiate through ASWSU!


Go Cougs!
