Spanish speaking families are invited to La Bievenida Orientation. This two-day session offers information around the WSU community, support services, and resources on the Pullman campus.

This is an overnight experience where you will have an opportunity to stay in our residence hall, eat at a dining center, and tour campus and resources available to your student.

La Bienvenida For Students

Students attending La Bienvenida will participate in WSU’s New Coug Orientation program which will be delivered in English. As a part of the New Coug Orientation experience, students are required to stay overnight in the residence halls.

New Coug Orientation is a required program for all new students attending fall semester. You’ll take part in learning modules, view college and department presentations, learn about student life, learn about campus resources, and prepare for advising and course registration. You will be placed in a small group of other New Cougs guided by an orientation counselor who is a current WSU student. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, make new friends, and fully immerse yourself in being a Coug in Pullman.
