The Point is your one-stop student support and success center that offers a true peer-to-peer experience to make you feel welcome and confident as you begin your PNW journey.
Students can ask questions, get connected to resources and learn more about being part of the Pride. Campus Ambassadors will plan and coordinate various hangouts and transition programming to help find your place on campus (or outside the classroom).
We believe some of the best community building happens at The POINT.
