Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) have been part of the Husky Experience since 1986. In the beginning of 2014, we changed the name to First-year Interest Group (still FIGs) to be more inclusive of our transfer populations as well as encourage an identity as first-year students to the UW.
We are still supportive of transfer students and their unqiue needs by offering Transfer FIGs. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like to learn more about this change and how you can get involved!
First Year Programs fosters a successful undergraduate student experience through strategic programming that focuses on positive academic transitions and the development of learning communities. Through partnerships with faculty, staff, alumni, and student leaders our programs create the space for students to define how they will engage, learn, and thrive at the University of Washington.
