Cougs Helping Cougs

Department: Division of Student Affairs


Dear members of the WSU community,

Since the beginning of the semester, we’ve been affected by the death and serious injury of students. As those of us touched by these events grieve and cope together, we ask for support from the Cougar community. Cougs take care of Cougs, and a word of encouragement may mean more than you know.  As a community, let’s take time to check in with our friends and fellow Cougs, ask if we’re okay, and support each other in accessing help if needed.


It is important to know that we have resources to help any WSU student in distress. If you or someone you know is feeling alone or troubled for any reason, please reach out to someone at the resources below. We are here to help.
