Each year the University of Washington welcomes over 8,000 new undergraduates to the campus and the U-District. Dawg Daze is the UW’s comprehensive effort to build community among new students, assist them in their transition, and introduce them to their new neighborhood. The program is massive, with more than 250 events over 10 days and participation by more than 60 campus departments.
