What does it mean to you to be part of the Seattle Community, your neighborhood, your Greek house, your Dorm. What are the voices in your community? How do different people celebrate their community…or feel isolated from it? What do the voices say? Does everyone have a voice?
Whether at home, in an organization, in a group of friends, or in a video game, we all belong to an organism that is a community. We are asking you to share the voices of your individual community–to explore the broad range of experiences, micro communities, and people that make up the diverse and living campus of the University of Washington. The voices that define UW aren’t always those that are present or visible, but they nonetheless influence the culture and community that thrives at UW. The voices in your community make up the UW choir.
