Welcome to the ESC!

The Ethnic Student Center (ESC) is a student-run organization within the Association Students (AS) of Western Washington University and was established in 1991. Our goal is to help students Affirm their identity, Build a sense of community, and Cultivate leadership (Our "ABCs"). The ESC is also home to 19 diverse clubs open to students of all backgrounds. These clubs promote the values of the ESC and offer a “home away from home” for all students. Many students within the ESC have moved on to become leaders on campus and in the community. The Ethnic Student Center is located on the 7th floor of the Viking Union in the Multicultural Center and provides anything a student might need-- comfortable lounging space, TV with cable, plenty of desk space, computers, supplies, and a supportive staff. Students often come before, between, and after classes to have lunch, study, have meetings, or just relax and hang out. Come down and join us!
