Washington State University recognized as a Voter Friendly Campus

Washington State University has been named a Voter Friendly Campus for its success with voter education and registration.

The designation was announced by the nonpartisan Campus Vote Project and NASPA, a national association for student affairs professionals in higher education.

The Voter Friendly Campus designation is a system‑wide honor for WSU, the only four‑year institution in Washington to be named for the 2019–2020 election cycle.

“Receiving this designation recognizes our efforts to shift the campus culture at all of our locations to one of more student participation in our democracy,” said Ben Calabretta, associate director of the Center for Civic Engagement (CCE). “We are setting a new standard where we expect our students to know about the election issues, to register to vote, and then actually vote.”

The mission of the Voter Friendly Campus designation is to bolster efforts that help students overcome barriers to participating in the political process. Barriers can include voter ID laws, lack of information, transportation to the polls, and confusing residency requirements.

“I think it’s important to remove barriers that students face because those barriers are silencing the future,” said Savanna Navarro Kresse, vice president of the Associated Students of Washington State University Tri‑Cities. “Many people assume students do not care to be a part of the political process, but the reality is we care a lot. When voting is accessible, students show up to vote.”

Kresse is a member of the WSU Cougs Vote Coalition which consists of faculty, staff, students and community members who are interested in increasing student democratic engagement.

The coalition met throughout the summer and fall of 2018 and created strategies to establish a student-driven awareness and democratic engagement campaign, educate students about the importance of midterm elections in addressing local and statewide issues, increase voting rates of WSU students above the 2014 midterm levels, and improve voting rates among multicultural and other underrepresented students.

Calabretta said the coalition’s efforts were very successful. Although CCE is still waiting to receive official numbers from the Secretary of State, he estimates over 3,000 students registered to vote through Cougs Vote related activities. Local precinct data indicate a higher voter turnout, too, with an increase of 2,000 voters in the Pullman precincts where WSU’s main campus is located.

With the midterm election over, there is a lull in the election cycle before things begin to heat up for the 2020 race. In the weeks ahead, Calabretta said it will be important for the coalition to continue its efforts, and being named a Voter Friendly Campus is a good motivator to keep the momentum going.

“We want to keep voting in our students’ minds so they know it’s still important and it’s something that they will participate in for the rest of their lives.”

A total of 123 institutions received the Voter Friendly Campus designation nationwide. They represent a wide range of two‑year, four‑year, public, private, rural, and urban campuses. WSU joins Centralia College, a two‑year public institution, as the only two institutions selected in Washington.

North carolina university address

*******

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

See what students say:

Citing “academic prestige” and “affordability,” the “beautiful,” “historic” setting, and “world-renowned” faculty, students take pride in “being a Tar Heel” at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The professors at UNC Chapel Hill are “top-notch, many of them being academic celebrities,” but “like the students, are never flashy” and remain “humble.” Students find that their professors frequently stress that they are here to “learn from you all as much as you are here to learn from me.” UNC offers undergrads “bountiful resources” as “one of the top public research universities in the nation,” and students have the opportunity to participate in this research by applying for “generous academic grants.” Academics are “rigorous,” but the “quality of teaching makes the material intellectually stimulating.” The college is fairly large, so students will likely attend “large lecture-hall style classes,” yet students stress that as they advance, “class sizes are smaller,” and this “leads to “the opportunity to build more personal relationships with professors.” UNC’s “reputation and ranking in STEM programs,” along with its well-regarded business school, are among its greatest strengths. Said one transfer student, “I visited countless top universities,” but UNC was the only one that had a “population…both economically and ethnically diverse.”

Student Body

The student body is “as helpful, as it is inquisitive, and as creative as it is caring.” For every “get-to-know-you question someone asks you,” there is a “student happy to direct you to your classes.” Everyone at Carolina is “fun, energetic, and passionate about something.” UNC is “unified unlike any other school I have encountered,” says one student, “whether it’s in the common support of a sports team, music group, or simply the pride in saying you are a Tar Heel.” Another student agrees, “Donning Carolina blue almost constantly, we all just really love our school!” The students “are smart, but they aren’t haughty and ostentatious about it.” Students are “generally liberal, but there is a vocal religious/conservative presence on campus as well.” Although there is a “large Greek population, Greek life isn’t quite as conservative as it is at many other southern schools.”

Campus Life

UNC offers its “more than 18,000 undergrads” a host of opportunities to socialize, relax, and pack themselves all together at the Dean E. Smith Center to cheer on the men’s basketball team. Carolina has strong athletics, including opportunities for “potential student-athletes.” For non-athletes, it’s a great school to be a fan, “as basketball games especially create a special campus atmosphere that nothing can recreate.” Despite the university’s size, life on campus generally moves at a “slow pace”—in a good way. The campus is full of “gorgeous old buildings, towering oak trees, and ubiquitous birds, squirrels, and chipmunks,” and students “love walking through the upper quad,” a “beautiful green area with lots of old trees.” Raleigh is “only 30 minutes away” and “Durham only 15,” so students will head out there on weekends, and if they need to unwind during the week, they go “out to bars on Franklin Street.” There’s “always a party going on at UNC,” but there are also “plenty of ways to have fun if you’re not into the party scene.” There are several “day hikes somewhat close to campus,” and Carrboro is “within walking distance,” providing a “hip space for social life including a farmers market, concert venue[s], and many bars and restaurants.””

Your Voice

“As a graduate student, I use the library for my heavy research. The librarians teach me how to use research tools such as using subject headings and quotes to narrow my searches. I am always surprised that the library has already subscribed to databases or materials that I need to access. For example, I needed a 1950s New York Times article and instead of me subscribing, I discovered that we already have it through the library. I always encourage others to use the library when they are searching academic material.” — Ashlei Evans, Public History Graduate Student

Virginia Colleges and Universities

Colleges and Universities in Virginia

As a prospective college student, you want a school that provides a high quality education, access to career resources and an appealing on-campus experience. But your experiences off campus are just as important. So while you may be considering the more than 100 colleges and universities in Virginia, you should also consider the state’s excellent quality of life. As home to the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, many miles of Atlantic shoreline, 35 state parks, 21 national parks and 119 national historic landmarks, there’s plenty of outdoor recreation available: boating, cycling, fishing, hiking and exploring. And with urban areas ranging from bustling Richmond to scenic Virginia Beach and historic Williamsburg, there are plenty of fun places to go when the sun goes down. Plus, with a degree from one of the colleges in Virginia, you could be well-poised for a career; Virginia has the nation’s highest concentration of high-tech workers and, as of 2012, is home to 24 Fortune 500 companies.

Beginning a career in Virginia with your new college degree

Virginia could be a prime destination for graduates who are educated in high-tech fields such as information technology or information systems. Some of its major employers include Computer Sciences Corporation, Electronic Data Systems Corporation, General Dynamics Information Technology and IBM Corporation. Additionally, manufacturing and aerospace are major employers, with companies such as Northrup Grumman and Lockheed Martin located there. The state’s mid-Atlantic location also makes it a major transportation, trade and utilities hub. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov, 2012), May 2011 mean annualwages for careers that employ high numbers of Virginians include:

  1. Computer support specialists: $55,520
  2. Computer systems analysts: $96,080
  3. First-line supervisors of production and operating workers: $57,180
  4. Human resources, training and labor relations specialists: $66,510
  5. Software developers, systems software: $111,480

It could be hard to top Virginia when it comes to education, career opportunities and quality of life. Keep in mind that five of Virginia’s cities, including Reston and Centreville, were ranked in CNNMoney Magazine’s 2012 list of the 100 best places to live in the United States (CNNMoney, 2012).

Other Colleges & Universities in Virginia

We’ve been collecting links to universities and colleges in Virginia, where you can find information on admissions, courses, degree programs and more. We hope these links help your Virginia college search, but please note that each school is responsible for its own website, business practices and academic standards.

History of The University of Texas System

“In a real sense there has been a University of Texas System since the beginning of The University of Texas on September 15, 1883. At that time the main university at Austin and the Medical Branch at Galveston were under the authority of the Board of Regents. Over the years, other branches and components were added to the system.” (Donald W. Whisenhunt, The Encyclopedia of Texas Colleges and Universities, 1986)

“The University of Texas System was established gradually.” (Margaret C. Berry, The University of Texas: A Pictorial Account of its First Century, 1980)

The Texas Constitution was adopted. Article VII provided that “The Legislature shall as soon as practicable, establish, organize, and provide for the maintenance, support, and direction of a university of the first class, to be located by a vote of the people of this State, and styled “The University of Texas.” The Legislature vested the governance of the University in the Board of Regents of The University of Texas.

Enabling Legislation was passed. “Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, that there be established in this State, at such locality as may be determined by a vote of the people, an institution of learning, which shall be known as The University of Texas. The medical department of the university shall be located, if so determined by a vote of the people, at a different point from the university proper, and as a branch thereof; and the question of the location of said department shall be submitted to the people and voted separately from the propositions for the location of the main university.
