Dawg Daze

Key Event Descriptions

We are still assembling our official Schedule of Events. The official Schedule will be released in Mid July!

Dawg Daze 2014 will feature over 200 events that create great opportunities for students to Connect, Explore, and Get Involved at UW and in the U District community! You will learn more about Dawg Daze Welcome Week at your Advising & Orientation session. Below is a short sampling of our key events that will be featured again this year:

Quad Flicks

Come enjoy an outdoor movie experience on the UW quad with other new UW students. This event is FREE. There will be food, games, activities, and of course a great movie to watch!

Husky Kickoff

It is expected that new students will attend Husky Kickoff on Sunday, September 22. Students will get a chance to meet other incoming freshman, see what being a student at UW is all about, play games, and participate in the annual class photo known as “the W photo.” This is one of UW’s greatest and most deep-rooted traditions.

Fall Fling

Fall Fling concert is back again for 2013. This event brings a student selected musical act to campus for a live show that is free for students. Another bonus, the show is outdoors, so you get to enjoy some great music in the September sun!

Hub Crawl

This event allows you to enjoy some fun inside of the new Husky Union Building, better known as the HUB. The building was re-opened after a remodel in fall of 2012. This facility is a favorite spot on campus for many students. Come check it out with games, activities, and some free food.

Late Night Shopping at Fred Meyer

During this late night event, students get a free bus ride to the northwest one stop shop Fred Meyer, and Fred Meyer gives students great deals and discounts all throughout the store. Be ready, because this shopping trip starts at 10:00pm and a live DJ greets you at the entrance of the store. Every year, over 2,000 students take the trip to Fred Meyer for fun and to get great deals. Fred Meyer closes the store to outside customers and UW students move in. It’s a great way to spend a Monday night!

Dawg Daze Night at the Mariners

Each year during Dawg Daze, the Seattle Mariners host new students for a night game at Safeco Field which is the home of the Mariners. Hundreds of students attend each year and receive a t-shirt with the purchase of their discounted ticket. This year, the UW will even throw out the first pitch. Don’t miss out!

Remember, this is just a sampling of events for Fall Dawg Daze 2013. Dawg Daze Welcome Week will feature over 200 events for you to Connect, Explore, and Get Involved in the campus a local community.
