Pullman is a magical place. Nestled in the rolling hills of the Palouse, the campus is far from the shimmering lights of, well, pretty much anywhere. Perhaps it's that isolation that makes it so special... and so much fun.

2. You have a slightly irregular reaction (to people who didn't go to WSU) to the color purple.

You don't know what it is, but every time you see a Husky fan, you want to break into that chant we all know...

3. Your mastery of the saying "Go Cougs" knows no bounds. You can use it as a salutation, exclamation, questions - you name it!

The "Go Cougs" saying is an internationally-known phenomenon and actually happens without much thinking upon seeing someone around the globe wearing WSU gear.

And you dream of it happening in Pullman one day. One day...

Even Tom Tuttle from Tacoma, Washington belts one out for WSU.

7. You spent as much time at The Dunes as you could before classes got too heavy (and even stayed for Summer school just to enjoy them longer).

A couple hundred of your closest friends on a sand bar with no restrooms in sight? Sounds like a great time.

8. You judge all other cheeses against the measuring stick that is Cougar Gold.

You even perfected your cheese tin rolling in case you were called upon to perform the duties at the Seattle Game.


9. This kid made the USWNT's win over Japan all that much sweeter for you.

That kid has been offered countless beers (when he's of age of course) at more tailgates than he'll ever have time for.

12. This song was on your winamp playlist and now is on your iPod...still.
