PULLMAN, WA - Are you a Washington State University Cougar? Are you considering retiring in Pullman? If you answered yes, a new survey says you might not be alone.
Washington State University says a large number of alumni are expressing interest in retiring to Pullman. The school conducted an online survey, and found 28% of more than 1000 alumni say they are interested in retiring on or near the WSU campus.
The survey shows most of them are interested in living in Pullman seasonally, for about four months out of the year.
Washington State University says the findings follow national trends as many Americans are retiring to college towns because of the amenities.
WSU Director of Real Estate Mel Taylor says the university is not interested in creating housing for retirees, but private developers might find the data useful.
Washington State University conducts transformational research and provides educations to more than 26,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.
Founded in 1890 in Pullman, it is Washington state's original land-grant university, with a mission of improving quality of life.
