Greetings #EverCougs!

We are excited to get our academic momentum back this fall semester with remote-learning classes starting August 24!

Yes, this semester will be a little different. Those of you who are returning students know that remote learning is in our DNA at Washington State University Everett. This campus brings the very best of the WSU to Everett, and we have been using remote learning since we began our first mechanical engineering classes in 2012.

That said, I want you and your families to feel comfortable with the tools we have ready for you, and for you to understand all of the resources that are still available to you. From engagement with faculty and peers, to career advising, to the basics of WiFi hotspots and Chromebooks, and all of the software that goes with it, we are here. Students, please complete this survey to help us better understand the impacts this will have on your learning experience.

Together, we are going to have a Coug experience, and you will take critical steps toward the career you have been working so hard to achieve.

Please join me and senior staff from WSU Everett for a campus virtual town hall on Tuesday, August 11, at 11:00 a.m. via Zoom. I will personally answer your questions and share resources available to you. We’ll also discuss the rare exceptions available for in-person laboratories and the steps we are taking to keep everyone safe and healthy. The Zoom meeting information is in your email and was sent on July 31.

I also highly recommend taking advantage of four Tech Ready student and parent training sessions from WSU Academic Outreach and Innovation. Prepare for those sessions here. The dates and times of the YouTube sessions are:

  • Monday, August 3, 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 6, 1:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, August 11, 5:30 p.m.
  • Friday, August 14, 1:00 p.m.

See you soon on Zoom, and Go Cougs!

Paul Pitre, Chancellor
Washington State University Everett
