Featured Announcement

The Hackberry tree outside the R.A. DuFresne Performing Arts Center on WSU’s campus is scheduled to be removed due to safety concerns.

This tree has stood in its place and served passers-by as a silent witness, provider, and campus benefactor for about 115 years (1905-2020).

Learn more about this century-tree whose long life served witness to most of WSU’s 162-year history.
