W Day toolkit


In 2011, W Day was established to commemorate the University’s 150th anniversary. Now, the W Day tradition lives on as a campus and community-wide celebration of the UW’s birthday, coinciding with Homecoming. Help us spread the word to fellow Huskies to join us on campus, online and in the community for the celebration of W Day!
