Huskies on the Hill Lobby Day
Lobby Day 2013
On February 15, 2013, more than 200 students, including 70 graduate and professional students, descended upon the Capitol in Olympia to speak with legislators about the importance of adequately funding higher education. The day started with the House of Representatives voting to repeal differential tuition for undergraduates, followed by student meetings with legislators where graduate and professional students fought to protect students that are in fee based programs. Many graduate students also participated in a Research Showcase where legislators and aids dropped by to learn about the valuable research students at the University of Washington are working on.
