The UW Celebrated its 150th Anniversary with W Day last Friday, November 4th, commemorating the day that the UW opened its doors in 1861. On W Day, Huskies from around the world came together decked out in purple to celebrate the UW and all of its accomplishments. Here on campus alumni, students, faculty & staff celebrated on Red Square with 150th celebratory t-shirts, W Day cupcakes created by Cupcake Royale, a performance by the Husky Band, face painting and appearances by President Young, Coach Steve Sarkisian, Coach Lorenzo Romar and even Harry the Husky!

Take a look at the W Day slideshow which captured some fun photos from the day.

    The slide show pictures are fantastic! As a UW alum (class of ’85) I’ve got to get some new Husky gear. Happy 150th everybody!!!
