The campus is simply beautiful and we had it almost to ourselves throughout our discovery time there. It was founded in 1890, probably pretty modern by some standards but quite ancient by West Coast standards. I'm sure it has been added to many times throughout the years and is still in a state of growth. Most buildings were closed for the weekend, but the Student recreation center was open and it was state of the art modern and top notch. Pool, indoor track, racquet ball, all kinds of exercise equipment, even pool tables and ping pong. I'm sure every student hopes to have many free hours to spend there. Ashley will certainly try to make the most of the building that is for certain.
Eastern Washington is known for warm summers and cold winters but my daughter adores snow and says bring it on. The campus would be beautiful covered in snow. This weekend it was a very warm 88 degrees.
I know it will even hotter when we move her there in August.

I couldn't believe the football Stadium is mid campus
I, of course, took a shine to the hexagon pavers
While exploring campus was a lot of fun I was disappointed to learn that Pullman's quilt shop The Quilted Heart had closed up shop and was no longer at the address listed in the phone book. Since all the nearby towns are small...those that had quilt shops were all closed on Sundays. Next time will include a Monday visit so we can see more of the campus and I will have to look up a couple of the quilt shops that are close by...if I can get the DH to agree. I better start being extra sweet to him.
