The Cougar Holiday Experience returns for the fourth year of seasonal gatherings in Olympia, Lynnwood and Bellevue starting Friday, Dec. 3 and continuing through Sunday, Dec. 5.
Each event features an extended selection of Cougar merchandise as distributed by the Students Book Corporation. (S.B.C. is affectionately known by WSU students and alumni as "The Bookie.")
Limited supplies of Cougar Gold Cheese will also be available for purchase at each of the Cougar Holiday Experience events.
