Hi Huskies,

If you haven’t had a chance to vote for the next ASUW Board of Directors yet, you still have time. Tomorrow (April 20) is the last day of the election for next year’s student leaders. Learn more about the candidates and vote online by noon tomorrow. Results will be available tomorrow night.

Thank you to our outstanding student leaders for their service to our campus. If you’re interested in student government, there are many ways you can participate through the Associated Students of the University of Washington and Graduate and Professional Student Senate.

Getting involved in politics is one way to enhance your Husky Experience, but there are many more, from Registered Student organizations to rock climbing at the Crags Climbing Center. I encourage you to continue exploring and try something new this spring!

Take the spring Husky Check-In Survey

Student input is vital to ensuring quality instruction at the UW. That is why we want to better understand your experience, specifically with student course evaluations, through this spring’s Husky Check-in survey. Husky Check-ins are administered by the Office of Educational Assessment (OEA) two to three times a year and are supported by student leaders at UW. This one should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and can be completed through Wednesday, April 26. Read results from prior check-ins on the OEA website.
