RICHLAND, Wash. — Students at Washington State University Tri-Cities will be one step closer to imagining the possibilities of a student union building when they vote Sept. 16-18 on a $100 per semester fee for its construction. The fee would be ongoing for maintenance and repairs.
PULLMAN – Compton Union Building administration will introduce a new room rate structure beginning July 1, 2010.
The intent of the new rates, CUB administrators said, is to provide more flexible scheduling options and to make space more accessible to WSU community members.
