Good morning, Coug fans! Quite the exciting news yesterday! In case you’ve been living under a rock- we have fall football again, starting in early November. The votes are in.

But- that’s not the vote I would like to talk about today. It’s no secret that WSU Student Athletes have been standing up for what they believe in, especially during the current climate of the world. The newest avenue is #CougsVote - a campaign to encourage students and athletes alike to get registered to vote. For example:

They also provide information on registration deadlines on their website. I think this is incredibly exciting as well. Make sure you're registered to vote here!

We have a lot of exciting stuff coming up, with the return of sports, so don’t forget to do your civic duty. It’s great to see my generation getting excited.

There has been some great news the past few days, which is a wonderful excuse to count your blessings, and do something nice for someone today! As always- stay safe, stay healthy, and stay hydrated!
