Question of the Month

Each month we will post a different frequently asked question and answer about the Student Recreation Center! Feel free to check out our FAQ Page to learn more about the facility. This month’s question:

  • Question: I just graduated from WWU last quarter. Can I still use the Rec Center?
    • Answer: As a graduating student, you are entitled to purchase a membership for one additional quarter beyond your graduation. Alternatively, you may also join the WWU Alumni Association, which will make you eligible to purchase quarterly and annual memberships as a non-student.
