2009posterIf you’re at Qwest Field for the Sept. 12 Cougar Gridiron Classic, don’t forget about Future Cougar Day, a regular part of the annual WSU in Seattle festivities. The academic fair begins at 1 p.m., three hours before kickoff. Among those answering questions for prospective students will be three College of Education representatives: Associate Professor Jennifer Beller, Director of Field Services Chris Sodorff and Clinical Assistant Professor Guy Westhoff.

By the way, Friday, Sept. 4, is the deadline to enter photos in the “My Color is Crimson” contest. Top entries will be displayed during Seattle pregame festivities. Game-day fans will choose their favorite crimson-colored scene during halftime. The winner will receive a Cougar football weekend package, including hotel room, game tickets and pregame sideline passes for two. Click here for details and some fun examples of Cougar-themed photos, including one that captures four WSU alumni in non-crimson fatigues on the job in Afghanistan.

Speaking of the military…
You may have read that WSU ranked among the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s veterans  in this year’s list of military friendly schools published by the magazine G.I. Jobs. EduCoug would like to salute the veterans among College of Education students and alumni. Can you help identify them? For that matter, do we have vets among our faculty? If you know, please share.

A sign of foreboding?
