As part of Dawg Daze in September (the University’s welcome week for incoming students), over 4,200 excited new students visited the HUB for HUB Crawl 2014. The HUB Games Area was packed, HUB rooms were filled with X Box and Wii tournaments, the hot dog eating contest was a cutthroat competition, and the Elvis impersonator elicited raucous applause. The HUB lawn was alive with a large temporary rock climbing wall and an inflatable obstacle course, and thousands of students enjoyed a tasty late night breakfast as part of the festivities. The crawl encourages incoming students to meet one another, take home some UW swag, enjoy fun and free activities, and get to know the HUB and the groups that call the HUB home. The event opened the doors of the HUB to a new class of Huskies for the first time, introducing them to a key campus spot that will serve them for the rest of their time at the UW.
