Year at UW: First

About me: Hi! I'm Katherine. I'm only in my first year here at UW, but I'm loving it more than I thought was possible! From the Honors Program, to the many extracurricular opportunities, to the fantastic professors, and of course my inspiring fellow students, there are so many things to love about UW. I'm planning to major in Political Science, and minor in International Studies. There are a lot of things I'm interested in, so choosing was difficult, and it's possible I'll add another major on! I do love politics though, and I've gotten involved in as many things relating to politics and civic engagement as I can here on campus. I have lived in Seattle my whole life, so if you ever need advice on anything related to the city...public transportation, fun parks, good restaurants, potential internships, or anything else...I'll do my best.
