He is majoring in Law and Justice. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Anwar came to the Pacific Northwest, specifically Bellevue, WA, during his junior year of high school. Now, while he has no complaints of the big city life that Brooklyn had to offer, he has found a home here in Washington State and has hopes to live and work in the Seattle area after he graduates from CWU.&nbsp;</p> <p>His hope for the future is to work in civilian law enforcement. He decided to follow in the footsteps of his brother, a Military Police Officer, by enlisting in the National Guard. Once enlisted, he became an active duty Military Police Officer (also known as an MP) in Afghanistan for about a year. A Military Police Officer is like any police officer but reports to military installations.&nbsp;</p> <p>It was from this experience that he felt like he was ready to tackle a career in law enforcement. Anwar also says his time serving helped him get ready to be a student. &ldquo;It really made me mature,&rdquo; Anwar said, &ldquo;Because I remember in high school I was not a good student whatsoever, and it was good that I took a break before I went to college. It really gave me time to mature and get things right and look at the bigger picture of life.&rdquo;</p> <p>It was Anwar&rsquo;s experience joining the armed forces that gave him the discipline and guidance to pursue an education at Central. When asked why he decided to apply to be a wildcat, Anwar said, &ldquo;My commanding officer did ROTC before she served and she really pushed me to do ROTC. I researched schools and Central has one of the best Law and Justice courses in the state. One of my Sargent&rsquo;s parents both went to Central for Law and Justice and along with the really good ROTC program it offers it made it clear I should go here.&rdquo;</p> <p>Anwar chose to live in Quigley after his visits during time on leave. One of his friends was living in Quigley. By the time Anwar decided to attend the university, his choice was simple. He knew the hall and even got to choose the same room as his friend. He now lives with his little brother. &ldquo;It is nice because I have made friends in my hall, I have made friends with my brother&rsquo;s friends, I have friends from high school and from ROTC. It is a nice community here and I am pretty happy about that.&rdquo;</p> <p>When asked about what Veterans day means to him, Anwar had this to say, &ldquo;It is really important to me. A lot of people live their life as a routine without thinking of the freedoms that they have. A lot of countries don&rsquo;t have that. Especially [after] being in Afghanistan. In March, I responded to a call about a Marine convoy that had been ambushed by a suicide bomber. So we lost those guys. Like, to me it&rsquo;s important to remember those people who gave their lives and fought for their country. They were one week from getting home and their convoy got ambushed. So to me that&rsquo;s really important to remember those guys, and to remember all that we take for granted.&rdquo;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>This Veteran&rsquo;s Day, Housing and Residence Life would like to thank Yasin Anwar and all veterans for their service.&nbsp;&nbsp;When not in class or ROTC, you might just catch Anwar showing off his shoes as he has a passion for sneakers. His personal favorites are Jordan&rsquo;s. While his Quigley closet cannot fit all of his pairs, he does his best to make room for his entire collection.&nbsp;</p> </p style="text-align: center;"></p style="text-align: center;">Central Washington University Organization Donates 1000 Pairs of Socks to Local Clothing Closethttps://www.cwu.edu/housing/node/3066Thu, 07 Nov 2019 15:29:33<p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/images/socks.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 600px;" /></p> <p>The National Residence Hall Honorary Tom Ogg Chapter of Central Washington University collected 1000 pairs of socks in a Socktober donation drive. Donations for Socktober started October 14, 2019 with 136 pairs of socks donated within the first week, 186 pairs of socks within its second week, and 678 pairs of socks donated in the final week.</p> <p>Socktober started off a service project pitched by the Executive Vice President of the Chapter, Alexis Daggett. Often, clothing donation centers receive an influx of jackets, coats, and pants to provide community members with gear to prepare for the winter season, but do not see a lot of sock donations. The CWU NRHH chapter decided to start the sock donation drive or, &ldquo;Socktober&rdquo; to ensure members of the community had access to warm pairs of socks for the upcoming winter season. Ronnie Burris, the Coordinating Officer of Service for the chapter worked with the chapter&rsquo;s advisor Fiona Corner, the Assistant Director for Leadership and Development in Residence Life, to develop marketing and create donation drop off boxes.</p> <p>The CWU NRHH chapter partnered with the Residence Hall Association and the Residence Life Office staff throughout Socktober to collect sock donations. The CWU NRHH chapter, in partnership with RHA, developed a competition to encourage the different residence halls on campus to donate socks. The Residence Life office staff worked with NRHH to decorate collection boxes for the drive that were placed inside of the NRHH/RHA Office and Residence Life Office</p> <p>All sock donations for Socktober went to the Ellensburg Community Clothing Center connected to the Ellensburg United Methodist Church. Members from NRHH and RHA went to the clothing center to donate the socks and help organize the socks.&nbsp;</p> </p style="text-align: center;">New year, new building: CWU opens Dugmore Hall residence hallhttps://www.cwu.edu/housing/node/3065Mon, 30 Sep 2019 13:14:58<p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://www.cwu.edu/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/dog1.jpg" style="width: 70%;" /></p> <p>Students are settling into a new residence hall at Central Washington University as school starts Wednesday.</p> <p>On Friday, roughly 2,000 students began moving into CWU residence halls, including the 402-bed, brand-new Dugmore Hall.</p> <p>&ldquo;Our building committee has been working on this for almost two years and working with great partners,&rdquo; said Tricia Rabel, CWU&rsquo;s executive director of housing and residence life. &ldquo;Getting to see people start to move into the building has been delightful. Watching streams of students coming in smiling and looking up and seeing the mass of it &mdash; it&rsquo;s a big building &mdash; but then coming in and seeing, this is my area.&rdquo;</p> <p>The four-story, 105,000-square-foot Dugmore Hall is host to 60 double rooms with restrooms, 144 double rooms with suite-style restrooms and single living quarters.</p> <p>The $40 million project was approved by the board of trustees in 2017 in response to a growing enrollment of first-year students and a need for north-campus housing. Construction began in May 2018. The project was funded through a special bond sale, rather than state or tuition funds.</p> <p>Rabel said much of the building design was created based on student feedback, including color-coded floors inspired by the natural themes of Kittitas Valley &mdash; highlights of red, yellow, green and blue on doors and ceilings to represent the earth, soil, trees and sky. Another student-inspired aspect is that doors can remain propped open unless a fire alarm sounds, for example.</p> <p>Each floor of Dugmore features study rooms, laundry rooms and communal showers with bathtubs. Throughout the building, there are 22 gender inclusive and 10 male and female bathrooms.</p> <p>The building also features lounges with coffee tables, couches, flat screen TVs and ceiling-to-floor windows that provide a view of campus and the Kittitas Valley hillsides on each floor. A first-floor kitchen and second-floor game room are available to all students.</p> <p>The new residence hall was named for&nbsp;William Dugmore, a CWU Department of Psychology professor from 1969 to 2014, who also provided counseling to students at the campus counseling clinic. Dugmore left his entire estate of roughly $1.2 million to the university when he died in early 2018. It is the university&rsquo;s largest gift in recent history and contributes to scholarship endowments for the departments of music and psychology, as well as funding for the counseling center.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://www.cwu.edu/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/dugnews2.jpg" style="width: 70%;" /></p> <p>Beside the new residence hall is the new Northside Commons, a 6,000 square-foot dining facility with a Panda Express voted in by students and the 1891 Café and Market.</p> <p>Priority is given to first-year students in the new dorm. Freshmen are expected to occupy 320 spaces, while the remaining 80 spots are open to upperclassmen.</p> <p>On the second floor of Dugmore on Friday, McCall deChenne and Maggie Gatlin, freshman students planning to study biology and special education, respectively, were unpacking boxes and getting to know each other better.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was a random match, but we bonded pretty well,&rdquo; Gatlin said. &ldquo;We knew that we were going to be roommates, so we contacted each other (over the summer) and we&rsquo;ve been talking up to this point.&rdquo;</p> <p>The two said they were excited to be living on campus, and were surprised by how big their room was and how easy the building layout had been to navigate. In the days leading up to class, they planned to do as many campus activities as they could to get to know campus and other students, including flag football and &ldquo;big volleyball,&rdquo; or volleyball with a beach ball.</p> <p>Down the hallway, freshman Josh Rodgers from Olympia also was moving in. He said he was most looking forward to figuring out how to live on his own, and intended to hit the ground running the first few days on campus.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m going to try to spend the least amount of time in my dorm so I&rsquo;m out meeting new people and then probably walking around trying to find each location of my classes so I&rsquo;m not the freshman asking everyone where everything&rsquo;s at,&rdquo; he said. &rdquo;I&rsquo;m excited. I&rsquo;m happy to be here. I&rsquo;m really excited to meet a bunch of new people and new friends.&rdquo;</p> <p>Arthur Mosiman, the residence hall association president, moved from Kamola, the school&rsquo;s oldest residence hall, to Dugmore Hall this year. On Friday, he was giving students directions and helping orchestrate move-in day at the new hall.</p> <p>Mosiman said the modern bathrooms and showers in the new building were a highlight of the new space, as well as the color-coding of each floor. But he said he looked forward to continuing to shape Dugmore for future students, as well.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://www.cwu.edu/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/dognews3.jpg" style="width: 70%;" /></p> <p>&ldquo;Throughout Kamola Hall, we had pictures of what it looked like in the 1800s &hellip; and the early 1900s, and so we don&rsquo;t have that legacy here, but that&rsquo;s something we&rsquo;re creating right now,&rdquo; Mosiman said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m super excited about actually being the first (students to be) building a legacy of what happens at Dugmore. We&rsquo;re shaping the future right now.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://www.cwu.edu/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/dognews4.jpg" style="width: 70%;" /></p> </p style="text-align: center;"></p style="text-align: center;"></p style="text-align: center;"></p style="text-align: center;">Dugmore Hall opens in time for new school year at CWUhttps://www.cwu.edu/housing/node/3064Thu, 26 Sep 2019 13:06:58<p>Fall quarter at Central Washington University starts Wednesday and some new students will enjoy living in a brand new dormitory.</p> <p>Dugmore Hall finished recently and just in time for the new school year.</p> <p>The building houses 400 CWU students, most of them in their first year at Central.</p> <p>It features single rooms and suite-style living. Next door is Northside Commons which has 1891 Cafe and Market, which sells espresso, bakery items and convenience items.</p> <p>The main attraction is a full-service Panda Express.</p> <p>Associate Dean of Student Living Dr. Jenna Hyatt says it&#39;s an ideal location for CWU students.</p> <p>&quot;It&#39;s a very modern building and it&#39;s situated perfectly on the north side of campus, right next to our Rec Sports Complex and across from our library,&quot; Hyatt said.</p> <p>Hyatt says about 40 percent of the approximate 4,100 students at Central live on campus.</p> Housing and Residence Life Announces New Residence Hall Coordinatorshttps://www.cwu.edu/housing/node/3062Fri, 13 Sep 2019 10:58:03<p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://www.cwu.edu/housing/sites/cts.cwu.edu.housing/files/RHC_New%20members.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 375px;" /></p> <p>Housing and Residence Life is excited to announce the following Residence Hall Coordinators to their team:</p> <p>Ashley Derr is the Residence Hall Coordinator, RHC, for Beck and Hitchcock Halls, located in the Bassetties.
