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 300 students, faculty and staff converged on Balmer Commons on September 29th for the annual Foster Ice Cream Social, which is a part of the Dawg Daze program to welcome students to campus.  

The Undergraduate Programs staff served free ice cream and everyone was encouraged to build their own sundae with various toppings. 

The event was the first chance for newly admitted Freshman Direct students to mingle with faculty and staff, while older students and a wide array of students interested in business from across campus enjoyed the festivities as well.
