The Purple & Gold Experience

P&G Photobooth

Newly admitted students to the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle, along with their parents and others within the student’s academic network, are invited to discover all the UW has to offer through the 2017 Purple & Gold Experience. Participants will learn about programs that promote success both in and out of the classroom, interact with current UW students, and have opportunities to find out about academic majors, support services, and social/cultural happenings on campus.  There is definitely an abundance to see at the UW, and this event will give students and their families a glimpse into why the UW is a world premier university.
