Your backstage pass to the UW

Join us next year, April 13–15, for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at what the Husky Experience is really like.

Take an immersive campus tour (special access to Husky Stadium, anyone?), expand your mind at a faculty lecture, chat with UW leadership over coffee and croissants, sing “Bow Down to Washington” at the top of your lungs, paddle around the same waters where the boys in the boat trained for Olympic gold, be dazzled by Huskies at the PFW Talent Show — the possibilities are endless.

“We enjoyed spending time with our son on campus, because we saw UW through his eyes as a freshman. He showed his where his classes are held, his dorm room, where he eats, where he goes with his friends, etc. We also really enjoyed the ‘Boys in the Boat’ book reading/signing, especially because of its connection with UW.”

“I loved the canoe ride through Lake Washington and just spending time with my son walking around the campus. I saw so much of the campus I would have never seen otherwise.”

“We enjoyed everything about the weekend! The weather was perfect! The staff, administration and volunteers were friendly, interesting, approachable and helpful. Food was delicious! The schedule was packed with so many interesting choices – we loved the career panel the most. Thank you for such a wonderful, memorable weekend!”

“I hope you will offer this event every year. We live out of state and this weekend gave us the opportunity to feel more connected and part of our daughter’s experience. Thank you.”
