You’ve passed the tests; you’ve made the grade — but how will you meet people? Which classes should you take? How will you tap into all that awaits?
College isn’t just about fitting in — it’s about finding a smaller community of people who will challenge you, and be challenged by you — a group of friends with whom you’ll discover your career. In your first year at the UW, you'll make choices that will shape the rest of your career as a student, and after you graduate.
The programs below focus on first-year transition. They will provide you with ways to shape your experience at the university and ensure that your experience fits with your interests. Introducing you to the company of a smaller group of students — people who share your interests, and people who will show you new perspectives you’ve never imagined.
