Membership also provides you a discount on rental fees for use of the boats and equipment. This benefit expires 6/30/24 unless you had previously purchased a life membership.

Only Western Alumni Association members have the opportunity to purchase membership to this state-of-the-art facility. Unlike other Alumni Association member benefits, you must be a WWU degreed alumnus or President's Society member to join.
