Of course, we're a bit biased - it's the home state of CEEP founder Paul Loeb, Associate National Director Geov Parrish, and several other national and state CEEP staff - but we mention it now because CEEP's Washington staffperson, Luke Shipstad, reports that between schools working with CEEP and the efforts of the Washington Student Association, WashPIRG, and Washington BUS, new and updated (e.g. address changes) student registrations statewide so far have topped 13,000! Those aren't complete numbers, but even as is, they're a fine testimony to lots of hard work on many different campuses. Highlights: 552 registrants at Seattle University (out of 7,000 students); 641 at Central Washington University (11,000 students); 664 at Eastern Washington University (also 11,000 students); 788 at Bellevue College; 1,483 at University of Washington; 1,748 at Washington State University; and a phenomenal 2,261 (out of 14,000 students - better than one in seven!) at Luke's home school, Western Washington University in Bellingham. Congratulations to all involved!
