Stay close with news, visits, birthday cakes
Western’s incoming class will have more out-of-state students than ever this fall. Here are some tips to help families far away – and maybe not so far – stay in touch with their students.
Check out the Western Front, Western’s student newspaper, online at www.westernfrontonline.net.
Celebrate birthdays from afar by ordering a birthday cake. Visit housing.wwu.edu/dining/ordercake.php.
Host a WWU event in your area. Connect with other Western parents to share information and stories about your student’s life at Western.
Mark your calendar for Fall Family Open House Oct. 24 to 26, which will include a talk by travel writer Rick Steves, presentations by campus experts and an opening reception of the new Academic Instructional Center.
