Give to the UW

Senior Class Gift

2016Over the past century, UW classes have united to give back to the University in a variety of ways. From Sylvan Grove to the Yoshino cherry trees in the Quad to the numerous scholarships and endowments available to students across our campus, the mark of past generations of students is evident and everlasting. Becoming part of this tradition shows that the Class of 2016 is a class of Real Dawgs who:

  • Value the education they’ve received.
  • Carry the same spirit and Husky pride of past UW classes.
  • Believe in reaching out in order to give back and help future students.
