Happy Halloween Husky Battalion! The Navy and Marine Corps Birthday Ball is this Friday, November 2nd at the Lynnwood Convention Center. Make sure you leave early enough to make it to the ceremony on time, as Seattle traffic on Friday can be problematic.

Citadel Challenge Outcome/ Future Plans

Apr
02

During the past weekend 4 of our MIDN participated in the Citadel challenge. The team consisted of MIDN Schedler, MIDN Greenslade, MIDN Zeigar, and Sgt Lewis. Congratulation to the team for placing 55th out of 180 teams! The interesting thing to note though is that although all the teams were allowed to wear running shoes, but our UW Nrotc team participated in all boots and still managed to defeat a majority of the teams. This was also the first time that the UW Nrotc team participated in the Citadel challenge.
