The Disabilities New Student Network provides additional support for students who self-identify as disabled. This Network Lead establishes a community, provides referrals, resources, and social opportunities. This is a great way to get to know other students and establish friendships with other students, an essential part to your experience coming into the University of Washington Bothell.
If you like to join the Network or want additional information, please contact the Network Lead for veterans. There are also Networks for Veterans, Undocumented, and a GLBTQ students. If you also identify with these networks and like to join or want information on these networks, feel free to contact the Network Leads by visiting the menu on the left.
Meet Your Network Lead: Jack Ramirez
My name is Jack Ramirez, and 2015-2016 was my first year at UWB. I plan to major in Community Psychology, though I'm involved in many aspects of UWB besides my intended major, like working at the Writing and Communications Center (WaCC) and now taking on the role of a Network Leader. I spend my free time cooking, drawing, and playing video games. In fact, I've been in the process of developing an original game since November 2015. Creativity drives me, and I love to explore new concepts and ideas. Being able to be involved in the Students with Disabilities Network is incredibly exciting; I am a disabled student, and during my transition to UWB I was not aware of any of the communities or services that could have helped me along the way. I look forward to connecting with you all during your first year at UWB!

Winter Workshop - Self-Care & Coping with Stress
Friday, December 2nd, 4-6pm
As the quarter is wrapping up and finals are approaching, it's easy to get overwhelmed- sometimes we even forget to take care of ourselves amid the stress. Let's take time to talk about practicing self-care, create simple DIY projects related to self-care, and learn ways to address and manage stress. Hot beverages will be provided, and a raffle will be held at the end of the event for a bundle of self-care goods.
