When I was a UW senior, I was ready to go. But that doesn’t mean I wanted to cut my ties to the University. On the contrary, I was looking for ways to stay connected. That’s why I joined the UW Alumni Association straight out of school. I spent three years down South, and I couldn’t even watch the Huskies being in SEC country and all. But my UWAA connection helped me stay close to campus.
Well, the UWAA is taking it to a new level this year. Special for the Class of 2010 is an offer for free UW license plates. That’s nearly a $50 value and will put more of those stylin’ UW plates on the road. Pictured here with his UW plates is Eddie Pasatiempo, UWAA President and proud graduate from the Class of 1977.
We recognize the importance of giving back, and each UW senior who opts for a free set of plates will make a $28 donation to student scholarships with each year’s renewal fee. It’s a gift that keeps on giving and a win-win for new graduates and the UW community. Plus, staying connected this way is better than sticking around an extra quarter.
