Pierce College is attending a student rally from noon to 1 p.m. on Feb. 7 at the state capitol rotunda in Olympia.

A bus on campus will take students who attend this event. It’ll leave the school about 10:30 a.m and return at about 4 p.m.

The purpose of this rally is to bring students together from surrounding community and technical colleges state-wide.

This is one of the only times that an opportunity is given to bring such a diversity of colleges together to discuss how their legislatures work. Individuals will also get to learn more about how much the systems matter to Washingtonians and students in general.

This experience is known a fun and interactive way to discuss the different legislatures within the colleges. During these rallies, different representatives from all the joining colleges get together to speak to students. This rally is also a chance for students to address this crowd with any opinions or suggestions.

Students are given the chance to learn more about their own college, other colleges and become involved.

Brian McQuay, legislative senator at Pierce College Puyallup, said that one of the main topics that will be addressed in the rally is informing people on how individuals are affected by cuts made to the system.

It’s at this point that more people will be informed on the causes and effects of how things are working within our school systems.

“The rally is a way to get your message out there,” said Sean Cooke, director of Student Life.

Marty Cavalluzzi, president of Pierce College Puyallup, will speak at the rally and discuss the college’s perspective.

It’s a time for students to share their comments about their schools with others.
