Dawg Daze Afternoon

Monday, December 13th, 2010

The 2010-2011 school year kicked off on Tuesday, September 28th, with the annual Dawg Daze Ice Cream Social. Foster Undergraduate Programs Office staff scooped ice cream and doled out a variety of toppings as the line stretched out the doors of the “campus entrance” on the second floor of the brand new Paccar Hall. Students, faculty and staff wandered around the new space as more than 450 people were served free ice cream sundaes during the one-hour event.

Dawg Daze, sponsored by UW First Year Programs, happens prior to the start of classes each Fall quarter and acts as the UW’s official welcome week.

  Over 500 Foster graduates participated in the annual Undergraduate Graduation Celebration on June 6, 2010 at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.

Families and friends watched as keynote speaker Ken Denman spoke about his experience and passed on words of wisdom to the audience. Student speaker Buddy Waddington encouraged his classmates that the Class of 2010 can ”go with the flow of the current and still create our own wake”  and the Senior Class Gift Committee presented the deans with their collected total. The graduates crossed the stage to thunderous applause, some with creative designs on their mortarboards or leis around their necks. Foster faculty and staff were excited to congratulate the graduates and mingle with the families, and GradTrak photographers were on hand to commemorate the day.
