About the Program
The WSU Pullman K-8 Field Trips Program provides groups visiting the Washington State University Pullman campus with a hands-on, interactive and engaging experience as a way to learn about the university and college life in general. All field trips begin with check-in and an introductory activity led by staff from the WSU Pullman K-8 Field Trips Program at the Brelsford WSU Visitor Center.
Visiting groups, ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade, are able to learn about various areas of study through tours, demonstrations and interactive activities lead by WSU Pullman faculty and staff who are experts in their fields. Groups also have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with college students about WSU Pullman, eat in the dining halls and visit Ferdinand’s Ice Cream Shoppe – the campus creamery!
The field trips program is dedicated to sharing knowledge, education and access to Washington State University through its complimentary group visits service and strives to ensure visiting groups leave having learned something new. Each group receives a custom, detailed itinerary based on preferences listed on the registration form and available activities to create a positive, fun and educational experience.
Group coordinators can view available field trip dates by visiting Availability Calendar for the online calendar. All groups are required to complete the online registration form. Please keep in mind that we can only facilitate one field trip per day.
Please call the WSU Pullman Field Trips Program at 509-335-4821 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions.
