The Director’s Welcome – Winter 2019

There is no denying winter is here as UW was blanketed in snow for most of February. In fact, this is the most snow campus has seen since 1949, which also happens to be the year the HUB first opened (originally called the Associated Students Memorial Union). It is 70 years later and the main…


Bubba’s Bulletin – Winter 2019

Hey, y’all. Some people ask me how I am able to keep up with what’s happening in the lives of former students, and while I wish I could declare it is due to a brilliant and diligent mind, it really is aided by things like holiday cards, birth announcements and such. Thankfully, this is magnified…


Alumni Spotlight: Thom Gunn, ASUW 1968-69 President

What was your most memorable UW class? Well, I can’t single it out to one. I took all of the best classes, and zeroed in on all of the best instructors. One of the best classes I took was Modern English History with Giovanni Costigan. From my research, Dr. Costigan was the greatest history teacher…


HUB Student Spotlight: Kelsey Hood, GPSS 2018-19 Vice President of External Affairs

What are your goals as VP of External Affairs? My primary objective as Vice President of External Affairs is to make graduate and professional students a bigger part of the higher education conversations taking place on and off campus. I am extremely passionate about highlighting the importance of graduate education because we provide education to…


GPSS Resource Fair

On October 18, the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) partnered with Core Programs (Office of Graduate Student Affairs) to host UW’s first-ever GPSS Resource Fair. Held in the HUB Lyceum, the fair provided tabling services as well as refreshments, entertainment, and free swag for the 300 graduate and professional students who attended the event….


Humble Feast

On November 16, the ASUW Student Food Cooperative (SFC) celebrated its annual Fall Humble Feast in the University of Washington’s Intellectual House. This year, nearly 250 students and faculty dined together in support of affordable, locally-sourced, ethically produced food. Cooked and served entirely by ASUW SFC and student volunteers, the four-course meal consisted of butternut,…


HUB Highlight: Revolution & Evolution

In honor of the the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity’s (OMA&D) 50th anniversary, the HUB is currently showcasing Revolution & Evolution, a historical exhibit reflecting the resilient voices and actions taken by the Black Student Union. In 1968, the OMA&D emerged as a direct result of a BSU sit-in that challenged the mistreatment of…

The Director’s Welcome – Fall 2018

Hello HUB alumni and friends, we have some exciting things to share in this Fall newsletter.  The first – a change, I’ll be writing the newsletter welcome note moving forward. I have big shoes to fill, but do not fret, Lincoln will still be sharing stories in his own “Bubba’s Bulletin.” As you will read…


Bubba’s Bulletin – Fall 2018

Let me start off by staying – I’m still here and not going anywhere. Yet, the time has come to initiate the transition of the HUB Alumni Network into the extremely capable hands of Justin Camputaro, the Director of the HUB, who has now been in his role for 2.5 years. He has fully embraced…


HUB Student Spotlight: Gabby Rivera, ASUW 2018-19 Director of Community Relations

1. What are your goals as Director of Community Relations? My role in ASUW allows me to collaborate with students from all over campus. I’m really fortunate that I get to help other student leaders put on effective programming and critically think about how they can advocate for their constituents. Within my term, I hope…


Alumni Spotlight: Cordell Carter, ASUW 1997-98 Vice President

1. What was your most memorable UW class? I had many at UW. However, one that stands out is Political Science 101, as we dissected “Lord of the Flies” as a metaphor for civilization. When I used to do labor negotiations, I would mentally categorize people Jack Merridew or Ralph to determine how to approach…


ASUW and GPSS Elections + Inauguration

This past spring, a new team of inspiring and enthusiastic students were slated as candidates in the 2018-2019 ASUW and GPSS elections. ASUW Elections Campaigning for the ASUW election commenced two weeks prior to the voting period and successfully garnered support from a large number of UW community members. As always, there were many promising…

Letter from Lincoln

The end of the school year is upon us yet again and I can’t help but reflect on the amazing opportunity my colleagues and I have working with ASUW and GPSS student leaders. It is quite humbling…and exhausting at times…but such an honor. The conclusion of the year means that leadership transitions are underway. We…
