BOTHELL, Wash. – The University of Washington Bothell begins classes Wednesday, September 28. To commemorate the start of the 2011-2012 academic year, the campus is hosting a week of events including convocation, academic workshops and student receptions.
With the recent addition of on-campus housing for 240 students, UW Bothell now has a permanent, 24-hour residential community. According to UW Bothell Chancellor Kenyon Chan, “Husky Village, our student residential complex, is full, and the campus is more vibrant than ever.”
University officials are expecting another record-setting enrollment, which will be confirmed when the school releases its complete Fall Quarter statistics in early October.
The activity was sponsored by the university’s alumni council. According to council chair, Mary Howisey, “Volunteer service is one important way for our former students to stay connected with the Bothell community. Our students enjoy the benefits of living and studying in this growing college town, and we like to give back however we can.”
