Hello Huskies,

Make your plans to stop by for free snacks at our Fuel for Finals event on Mar. 7 from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Say hi to folks from some of your campus support teams — we’ll be at four locations. Make sure to bring your Husky card! Follow us on Instagram @uwstudentlife and @uw_parents for location and event updates closer to finals week.

Wishing you a successful end to winter quarter!
