Transfer Students Welcomed at Reception During Dawg Daze
By Terry Hill, Program Coordinator, First Year Programs
More than 500 new transfer students attended a welcome reception the day before classes began this fall as part of Dawg Daze, the UW’s week of welcome for new and returning students. Students gathered in the Husky Union Building and sat at tables according to their past colleges. There, students reconnected with old friends and in many cases met new friends. Following a short welcome by the First Year Program Staff and the new Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Dr. Ed Taylor, students broke out in groups where they discussed the realities of student life at the UW with current students who were former transfer students. Food and door prizes kept the event light and fun. With the support of staff, current students, and new and old friends, 500 new transfer students hit the campus ready to call their new campus home. The UW intends to continue offering this welcome reception each year during Dawg Daze. For more information about Dawg Daze, visit the website:
