About 113 high school students are on the Washington State University campus at Pullman this week to take part in Cougar Quest, a hands-on interactive opportunity to immerse themselves in college life. Students take a variety of workshops – including creative writing, web design, popular culture, math, veterinary medicine, engineering, leadership and musical theater – taught by WSU faculty members and graduate students. Students live in residence halls and also visit the Holland/New Library, the Student Recreation Center, the Compton Union Building and Ferdinand’s during their stay on campus, which concludes Friday. Four years ago, the first Cougar Quest for high school students attracted 18 students. The program for junior high students, which was held last week, has seen similar growth. For details and to talk to people involved with the program, contact Linda Schoepflin, Cougar Quest director, at schoepfl@wsu.edu or 509.330.1792.
