Back in Session: THINK CougsFirst! For All of Your Football and School Needs!

Tailgates and textbooks: two quintessential harbingers that the fall season is back. With football and school back in full swing, it’s also time to stock up on the key products and services for some of fall’s favorite activities.

From game day ride options to the Seattle Game at CenturyLink Field on August 28th to wearing WSU apparel at the first day back on campus, CougsFirst! is the ultimate resource for supporting WSU, your fellow Cougs and Coug-owned businesses everyday!

Game On:

  • Get your tickets to the season’s biggest games via the WSU Ticket Office. Offering a wide variety of season ticket options, you can secure quality seats and ensure continued success in WSU Athletics by making your contribution to the Cougar Athletic Fund.

  • Gear up with WSU sports attire from or The Very Last Play. From statement t-shirts to onesies for the future Cougs and logo flags, these web retailers put the swagger in swag.

  • Bruce Titus Automotive Group in Olympia has the proper tailgating truck for any fan, offering a large inventory of vehicles from Nissan and Ford to Jeep and Subaru.

  • Road-tripping to the game? Rent or buy a new RV for touring from Valley RV Super Center in Auburn or Broadmoor RV SuperStore in Pasco. Just need a tune-up or to get your RV serviced? Choose one of these Coug businesses for all your RV needs!

  • Park at the Marco Polo Bar & Grill, a Coug-patronized game day saloon since 1950, and hop a ride to and from the Seattle game via the Emerald City Trolley. Or park it in a seat by a big screen, order the COUG Supreme cheeseburger with Cougar Gold cheese on top and catch all the WSU games with your fellow Cougs. As an added bonus, all WSU Alumni card-carrying members receive 15% off their entire bill!

  • If taking to the road for an away game isn’t on your calendar, host the tailgate from the comfort of your own home with takeout pizza, salads and more from Tutta Bella Pizzeria with five locations around the Seattle area.

Class In Session:

  • Get the bumper fixed or give the car a new paint shine for the trek back to Pullman with CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts at one of their Cougar-owned locations: Everett, Marysville, and Bothell.

  • Customize your threads for class or your Greek house of choice with College Hill Custom Threads. The web retailer also offers internships and campus sales representative positions to make some extra cash and show your Cougar pride!

  • For students seeking more serious employment, reach out to the WSU Center for Advising and Career Development. Along with offering academic advising, peer tutoring and academic success coaching, the CACD also aids in locating student jobs to help finance their education and enhance their learning.

  • With a branch in Pullman and nearly 400 branches in the Northwest, Umpqua Bank handles finances from personal to commercial and small business. Sign up for an account with Umpqua Bank to hold finances from a sweet summer gig or from selling old textbooks back.

  • Allow the Brelsford WSU Visitor Center to acclimate new students and families to the Pullman way of life—this new information hub serves as a gateway to WSU through city and campus guides, facility rentals, gifts like honey, wine and cheese and much more.
