Spring 2022 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 4) – Husky Pawket Guide


Hi Huskies,

As sunnier, warmer weather (hopefully) becomes increasingly the norm, consider taking time away from your screen(s) and your studies to get outside and enjoy some of the outdoor wonders that Seattle and the Pacific Northwest have to offer. And, for the times you feel stuck in your books, remember – summer is near, Huskies!

A note for graduates – Don’t miss another special Commencement section with news and reminders for your big day!
