The WWU Women’s Soccer team is facing off against CWU, and you can be there! Due to rain and high winds, the WWU Alumni Association has moved the party to the Campus Services Building above Harrington Field. Attendees will be able to come and go during the game, grab some food and warm up in the lobby of the Campus Services Building.

In addition to the game, you’ll also have tasty hot dogs and chili, chips with queso, mac-n-cheese and beer, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages to keep you satisfied.

You are invited with your family and friends to enjoy the glittering holiday magic of Zoolights. Enjoy a light buffet dinner in our private room, a complimentary glass of beer or wine, and a self-guided tour during this sparkling holiday tradition.
