Pitch a Tent at Gonzaga
If you signed up for four years at Gonzaga, you signed up for four years of basketball madness.
Join hundreds of your fellow classmates by building Tent City to show your pride, enjoy the sweet victory of camaraderie, and earn your free burritos and coffee for breakfast. If you end up grabbing the first tent, we applaud you for earning the highest of honors for Gonzaga traditions.
Back to School Style Tip: To stay warm overnight in the tent, we recommend our insulated jackets.
Cheer on a Civil War Game at University of Oregon
Attending a sports game is a common tradition across most campuses, but this one comes with a Platypus Trophy.
Between the Ducks and Beavers, this trophy has been passed down since 1959. We should probably mention it went missing for 40 years, but now it’s back in safe hands.
From football to volleyball, you can attend Civil War games across every sport and season. Make sure to throw your “O” in the stands too. Fun fact: The popular college movie, Animal House was filmed on campus.

Dance at the DAM JAM at Oregon State
In the springtime, you can look forward to great tunes at the DAM JAM, an annual music festival run by students featuring popular artists.
Before the show starts, check out the Dam Jamboree, which features student group performances and games. This is one of the best Oregon traditions to close out the school year.

Wander through the Cherry Blossoms at University of Washington
Captivating views are available year-round across the University of Washington campus, but the star of the show are the cherry blossoms in springtime, which are replanted from the Washington Park Arboretum.
Our second pick for stunning views? The Drumheller Fountain in the center of campus, which comes with a jaw-dropping backdrop of Rainier Vista.
Back to School Style Tip: Pose for photos in style with our button-up styles.
Ring the Victory Bell at Washington State University
Once a coug, always a coug.
After a huge hometown football win, you can celebrate one of the most famous Washington State traditions by ringing the Victory Bell on campus. Fun fact, the bell was purchased back in 1892 to sound the changing of classes. Get ready for homecoming with our looks below.
