The newly renovated CUB stands at the heart of student leadership, engagement, and culture on campus. It is home to offices for student government and many student services. The building houses a selection of food vendors, the campus bookstore, banks, and a post office. Both wired and wireless Internet services serve students and faculty. Ballrooms, meeting rooms, and a surround-sound auditorium host a variety of events. A passage through the CUB gives students 24-hour access to the library.
The whole student body comes together on Glenn Terrell Friendship Mall. Located at the heart of campus, the Mall is where culture, ideas, and lively dialogue are exchanged daily. It is the site of many outdoor events, including frequent live performances by student musicians. Students gather here as they walk to and from the library, the Compton Union Building (student union), and academic buildings, often staking out favorite spots to talk, relax, study, or catch a bite to eat.
The 160,000-square-foot Student Recreation Center features the largest student weight and cardio center in the country, basketball and volleyball courts, indoor soccer, a four-lane indoor track, racquetball and squash courts, roller hockey, badminton, and much more. Swimmers enjoy the five-lane lap pool, leisure pool, and 53-person spa.
Big crowds pack Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum for Pac-10 Cougar men's and women's basketball games and for big name entertainment for Dad's and Mom's Weekends. WSU students turn out for entertainment as varied as pop music concerts ballet, and wresting.
Located in the center of campus, Martin Stadium is home to the Pac-10 Cougars. Recent stadium renovations include a north-side concourse, additional concession and restroom areas, and a state-of-the-art scoreboard. Still to come are the addition of more seats and premium seating, slated for completion by fall of 2012.
