Cougar “tailing” program

WSU Vancouver’s alumni/student mentoring program. We are always looking for alumni in the SW Washington/Portland area to team up with us to host a student on a one day job shadow.

Show current students your daily duties and help them fine tune their career choices. To participate or find out more information, email us.

Share your Cougar success story

Have you met another Cougar in your line of business? Have you made a business contact because of another WSU alumnus?

Tell us about it! We are looking for those Cougs who work with other Cougs

To submit your Cougar success story, email us.

Speak to current students

Do you have an hour that you could come to campus? We are always looking to connect alumni back to their colleges. Professors are continually looking for professionals to come speak to their current students.

If you are working in a field such as accounting, human resources, psychology, social work, teaching and more, email us.

Spread Coug spirit throughout the community

Twice a year WSU Vancouver organizes service projects for alumni, students and Cougars at heart to support a local non-profit cause. The events are family friendly, last 2-3 hours and treats are often provided. Cougs in the Community events are a great way for Cougars to support our SW Washington and Portland metropolitan area organizations and give back to the community.

Previously our Cougar teams have painted the inside of a Second Step women's transitional home, helped at the Clark County and Oregon Food Banks, cleaned up Downtown Vancouver's Main Street and Heritage Square, and planted trees here on campus.

New service projects are happening each year. If you are interested in getting involved please email us.
