    Dawg Daze leaders develop programming and logistical support for all Welcome Week events, and act as UW ambassadors to ensure that the week is a memorable and enjoyable experience for all participants.

    • Help new students transition to the University
    • Meet new friends 
    • Share your love of UW with new students
    • Give back to the UW community
  • Commitments
    • Be available to attend training on Monday, September 16, 2019.
    • Be able to commit to volunteering for the Husky Kick-Off on 9/22 and two or more other Dawg Daze events (September 19-27).

As a result, you need to show up to events on time and be willing to step up to the challenges of the event. Be aware that students, faculty and staff will recognize you as a Dawg Daze Leader, and that you will be serving as a professional representative of UW.
