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

Husky Pawket Guide from the Desk of Dr. Denzil J. Suite.

Hi Huskies,

As we reach the midpoint of Autumn quarter, I am grateful for the many opportunities for all of us to be together again.

Expressing gratitude strengthens and nurtures our emotional and mental well-being, while helping us be more resilient in the face of stress and challenges.

I invite you to join us for the UW’s 4th Annual Gratitude Postcard Challenge. Take a pause in your day, write a postcard to someone you are grateful for, and LiveWell will mail it anywhere in the world for you! Find out where you can get a postcard or drop one off to be mailed.

Blake Delisa.Residential Community Student Association
Blake Delisa, President

Pronouns: He/They
Academic Year: Third year
Major/Studies: Biology-Physiology

What does your position entail?
I lead the Residential Community Student Association. In this role, I coordinate residential advocacy efforts, empower residents to communicate their concerns to Housing and Food Services staff and provide resources for professional development to residents.

Why did you get involved in student leadership?
I got involved in student leadership due to a deep concern for the effect of residential conditions on the performance of on-campus residents. Feelings of unsafety or overwhelming sensations in the face of living by oneself for the first time is a daunting obstacle in the way of new and continuing residents’ success. I wanted to elevate the residential experience to support the success of my peers and of the entire UW community.

What do you wish you’d known about the UW sooner?
I wish I had known about scholarships offered through various departments as well as the availability of various paying student jobs through the HUB as well as Housing and Food Services.

Anything you want to add?
Please come to General Council 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in Madrona 313 if you are a resident on campus! We would love to have you engage with residential advocacy!
