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


Hello Huskies,

Have a voice in who represents you on campus — vote for the next ASUW Board of Directors. ASUW is your association of students; there is a record number of candidates running this year and your voice is critical. Get to know your candidates and vote online between April 15–17.

Thank you to our outstanding student leaders for their service to our campus. If you’re interested in making an impact in your campus community, there are many ways you can participate such as the Associated Students of the University of Washington (ASUW) and Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS).


P.S. Student Life is hiring a Social Media Coordinator Intern! Are you interested in social media, marketing and communications-related work? Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply by April 21.
