Essence of Success is a one-day conference for African-American high school seniors who are interested in attending the University of Washington-Seattle. “Essence” was created to encourage African-American students to pursue higher education as well as give them a closer view of the UW through the eyes of academic excellence and diversity enhancement.

Participants will meet future classmates, learn about campus programs, and discover the diversity and unity that exists within the UW community. They will participate in writing and application workshops, cultural activities and get a chance to experience life as a future Husky! You are guaranteed a lot of fun and a rewarding, worthwhile experience! (Note: participation is open to all students regardless of race).
