International Welcome Programs Summer

To help all new international students transition into their lives at the UW and in Seattle, CIRCLE, in coordination with key campus partners, will lead the execution of the CIRCLE International Welcome Programs (IWP) for all four quarters. The CIRCLE IWP will be offered from June 16 to June 23, 2023 for the summer quarter and will showcase programs that vary in size and scope. As international students are able to arrive up to 30 days prior to the beginning of the academic year, students usually arrive at different times during these 30 days to get situated and settle their personal affairs before the beginning of the school year. With this in mind, the CIRCLE IWP complements First Year Programs’ Dawg Daze by providing new international students targeted and tailored programming to ensure they get the information or services that meet their unique needs. To help CIRCLE enhance this experience in future, please fill out the form in the button below to ensure new students have a great experience. Check out the schedule of events for the upcoming IWP.
