Each year, the Husky 100 recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students from Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma in all areas of study, who are making the most of their time at the UW.  Out of the seven students from UW Bothell selected in 2017, three are from IAS.

Aretha Basu (Society, Ethics & Human Behavior) has served as director of student advocacy for the Associated Students of UW Bothell.
