Price of Cougar Gold Cheese to increase next year
PULLMAN, Wash. — The cost of Cougar Gold Cheese is rising to help cover the cost of the new WSU Plant Sciences Building that is part of the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resources Sciences.
Brandon Schrand, interim director of marketing and communications for CAHNRS, said next year a 30 oz. can of Cougar Gold will cost $24, up from $22 per can this year.
He said the extra money will help make up the difference between what WSU requested from the state legislature for construction versus what the state gave.
“The proceeds have always gone to fund student learning and education,” Schrand said.
