Fall Dawg Daze has been a longstanding tradition of the University of Washington and is one of the nation’s largest weeks of welcome!
Winter Dawg Daze is a younger tradition at the University of Washington where we welcome our over 600 winter quarter admits to campus! Winter Dawg Daze takes place the entire month of January and is open to all students.
Through participation in Dawg Daze an entering student will:
Be exposed to a variety of people on our campus and see that it consists of people from different ethnicities, interests, backgrounds, and areas of the world.
Connect with new and returning students at the university during their first week on campus.
Be able to self-identify one new area of academic or social area of interest after the completion of Dawg Daze.
Be able to identify at least two concepts or areas of involvement that will help them be successful as a student at the university.
Annually, Fall Dawg Daze is host to more than 200 events, from more than 60 departments and student organizations, representing a diverse array of resources and opportunities.
