Welcome Back, Wildcats

As the month of September begins, we look forward to welcoming new and returning students to campus for a new academic year. And while campus will soon be buzzing with Wildcat students, we hope alumni will also visit this fall as our Wildcat Nation is not complete without the presence of our enthusiastic alumni on campus.

Before we know it, CWU Homecoming week will be here and filled with special events that create lifelong memories for students, alumni, and the entire Wildcat family. This year there are already several events planned including Wellington’s Wildfire, tailgating, and, of course, football.

With the return of fans at home football games comes the reopening of the Alumni Plaza where we welcome you to join us behind the endzone for food, beverages, and fun! The first home football game of the year is on September 25, and entrance to the Alumni Plaza is free for CWU Alumni Association and Wildcat Athletic Association members. If you need to join the alumni association or renew your membership, please visit our membership page.

If you want to bring your RV to campus for home football games, RV parking passes are available for purchase for the 2021 season. Grab your friends and family and join us for football and tailgating, right in the heart of the action. Visit our RV parking website for pricing and more information. Hurry, spots are limited!   

The next CWU Wine Club shipment is set for October and includes hand-selected wines made by a Wildcat, for Wildcats! Sign up for the CWU Wine Club today and select the shipment option that best suits you, ranging from three to six bottles, and red to white wine, all from alumni-owned Nefarious Cellars.

As we look forward to the year ahead of us, nominations for the 2022 Distinguished Alumni Awards are open and we are calling on the Wildcat family to nominate the outstanding alumni they know for a 4 Under 40, Distinguished Alumni, or Legacy Award. Nominees are reviewed by a committee and those selected will be honored at a ceremony on the Ellensburg campus next spring.

We hope everyone has a great start to the fall season and gets the chance to visit us at an upcoming event or on campus soon!

Go Cats!
