The Whulshootseed Lounge

Named after the language of the Muckleshoot tribe, the Whulshootseed Lounge is a safe and welcoming environment for all of our students to build community and solidarity. It's a space that honors, respects and recognizes the First Peoples of this land. Located on the second floor of the Mel Lindbloom Student Union office 240, our lounge is a space for students to study, attend study tables with peer navigators, use computers, network with student leaders, build community, and host group meetings. The lounge gives students access to a screen, speaker, and whiteboard. For more information regarding this resource or to reserve the space, please contact Fernando.
