Winter Resources & Opportunities (Volume 1) Husky Pawket Guide

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


Hello Huskies,

I hope your winter quarter is off to a good start! Thank you to our Pac-12 Champion Huskies and Husky Nation for a football season to remember.

I encourage you to make the most of your Husky Experience by trying something new this quarter — take a class at the IMA, meet with a Peer Wellness Coach or join a Registered Student Organization. It’s a great way to begin 2024!


Husky Experience

Husky 100 applications are now open

The search is on for the next Husky 100 — UW juniors, seniors and graduate students on all three campuses who are making the most of their Husky Experience. Nominate a fellow student by Jan. 24 and apply for yourself by Feb. 6. Learn more about Husky 100.


Student Impact Council

All UW students are invited to join the Student Impact Council (formerly Class Gift Council) by Jan. 31. As a volunteer you will help build a more inclusive campus community, shape Husky Giving Day and choose the area that will benefit from funds raised.

Students enjoy a fitness class.Rec Class Pass

The Recreation Class Pass is back. Winter quarter classes run until Mar. 8. Purchase your class pass and enjoy unlimited access to dozens of fitness and mindfulness classes. Don’t forget to register ahead of time for classes!

Study Abroad Fair

Students seeking to enrich their academic journey and embrace diverse cultures from around the globe can attend the Study Abroad Fair on Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. –2 p.m. at the HUB. Register and learn more about study abroad options.

Campus Community Safety

UW Alert to add student phone numbers for emergency texts

When an emergency occurs on or near UW’s campus, you need to know as quickly as possible, but only 8% of students have signed up for UW Alert text messages.

To make it easier for students to receive UW Alert texts, UW will be adding the phone number from your UW student profile to the UW Alert system. If the number is for a cell phone, UW will send you UW Alerts via text.

Students who don’t want to receive texts can reply STOP to any UW Alert text message (except for students living on campus in Seattle, who must contact Housing & Food Services for account changes). You can also add your cell phone number to your UW Alert account yourself.

UW will start adding student phone numbers to UW Alert at the end of January 2024.

Career and Internships

Careers in International Development & Diplomacy

Register to attend a panel discussion about public service and international development on Jan. 18 from 3:30–5:00 p.m. in HUB 332. Panelists include representatives from the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the US State Department and the Peace Corps.

Navigating the UW

Where to use your Husky Card
