Husky Pawket Guide From the Desk of Dr. Denzil Suite, UW Division of Student Life

Hi Huskies,

Spring quarter isn’t even halfway over, and I’m already thinking about June. I’m looking forward to in-person Commencement June 10 at Husky Stadium. It’s one of my favorite events of the year – student and celebrating their accomplishments with their loved ones, faculty and staff.

If you’re planning to graduate, it’s time to register for commencement. Complete the Commencement Registration/Order Form by May 21 so you can join us. I look forward to congratulating you in person!
