The Husky 100 has recently announced their third class of students, and FYP is excited to recognize a few of these 100 that have worked with our office! This award gives credit to students from all three UW campuses who have made the most of their Husky Experience through their commitment, engagement and achievements.
The application process was open to juniors, seniors and matriculated graduate students from all three campuses and included resume submission, personal statements, and letters of recommendation. This year’s selected students will be recognized in spring quarter and will have profiles on the new Husky 100 website. Additionally, they receive benefits including networking opportunities, exclusive career counseling, and invitations to events hosted by the president and provost.
Seven of these 100 aspiring students have worked within our office in various capacities. Mitch Aman, Ali Cho and Nadya Ekhteraee have all led First-year Interest Groups (FIGs) for one or more years. Emma Spickard served as an Orientation Leader in 2016 and a Student Coordinator in 2017. Mitch Aman served as an Orientation Leader in 2017 and Ali served as a Student Coordinator from 2016-2017. Dustine Bowker and Angel Chen are currently serving as Commuter and Transfer Commons Associates. Mitch Aman and Sarah Duncan were both Dawg Daze Leaders.
A huge congratulations to all of the students who make up the Husky 100, and thank you to those that have assisted us in the past!
