First Year Programs

Dawg Daze

Dawg Daze allows students to engage with campus resources and experience life on campus. While some Dawg Daze events are not connected to orientation outcomes, hosting a Dawg Daze event as part of your department's strategy to introduce students to orientation concepts can be very effective. 

Fight Song Content in Dawg Daze: Students can attend a pep rally before the first home football game to get students excited and involved in athletics. The Dawg Daze schedule can include promotions for tailgate parties, tickets to sit in the student section, and other opportunities experience what it's like to sing the fight song with thousands of other Huskies fans. Other events can include an information session for students to learn more about joining performance groups on campus, attend acapella performances, or participate in other campus traditions.  

Dawg Daze events are scheduled every fall and winter quarter. Visit the Dawg Daze website for more information about how to submit an event.
