Why the UW?
“The University of Washington fosters community, diversity, and excellence. It challenges students to recognize issues that we are facing as a society and gives the tools needed to approach and find solutions. Depending on your interests and passions, it is easy to utilize UW’s resources to build or find a community to make your own. As a Husky alumna, I can confidently say that the University of Washington has not only given me the tools to succeed after college, but has allowed me to be a part of a lifelong community filled with friends and experiences that has shaped me into the person I am today. With a proactive mindset you too can build your future at the University of Washington. Go Huskies!”
