Queer Guide to Dawg Daze
The UW community welcomes its students back to campus with an annual week-long extravaganza of events, introductions, and workshops called Dawg Daze. To new students this is an opportunity to embrace all that the campus has to offer- clubs, resources, student groups, academic programs, housing accommodations, and more. This was how i found the Q center when i first came to campus- during the sexuality, gender, and treats information session- the rest is history. As a returning student it is an opportunity to share what i have learned with new students and explore the campus in a new light, one with a year’s experience- that of having changed (potential) majors, of having been acquainted with new perspectives and goals, of inhabiting the truths of my true gender identity, and the need rediscover the campus with these changes in mind. The events are designed as such- for all students. This said, the Q Center, along side GBLTC, DLP, and CCSL has planned a week full of queer events! Be sure to check them out for more information on queer resources on campus, how to get involved, and meet new friends! Don’t be shy, come on by!
