Love those tablets!


Aspen Capital Company has financed the WSU E-Warrior Digital Life and Learning Program since 2000. Their programs have helped to insure that every WSU student has access to state-of-the-art technology, to include comprehensive service and support, accidental damage protection, and periodic upgrades.

A key component of the partnership established between Aspen Capital and WSU includes Aspen’s commitment to “give back” to the University. Accordingly, Aspen Capital is pleased to provide scholarships for the 2014-2015 e-Warrior e-Flick Competition event.
