COVID: As a reminder, as part of the WSU spring 2021 Semester Testing Program, many WSU students will need to take a COVID-19 test upon their arrival to Pullman. This includes: students living in WSU residence halls or WSU-owned apartments; students who work on campus; students who have in-person activities, classes or appointments, including athletic programs; students who plan to access any campus facilities (e.g. dining facilities, CUB, Chinook Student Center, recreation facilities, SPARK, etc.). Students living in Pullman are strongly encouraged to take advantage of arrival testing.
All volunteers must complete the WSU attestation form before working on a CCE project. This can be done at https://attestation.wsu.edu.
You are required to provide your own transportation. We will be meeting at PCEI 10 minutes before our start time. Once the project is completed, students will leave through their own means of transportation that they used to arrive on site.
All COVID regulations will be followed. You MUST have a mask on at all times while on site and do your best to keep 6 feet social distancing. Please dress for the weather, and be sure to bring a full water bottle.
Cancellation Policy: Participants can unregister on GivePulse up to 24 hours before the scheduled project start time. Please let CCE staff know if you are unable to participate if it is within 24 hours of the project meeting time. The CCE has a strict No Show Policy. After 2 No Shows students will be unable to participate in CCE-led Projects for the rest of the semester.
