First Year Students

First Year Student Visits

As a student transitioning from high school to university life, you have lots to consider. Visit campus for a test drive! Sit in the driver’s seat to gain a sense of how UW Bothell will help you get where you want to go.

Daily Visits

Campus visits provide you with a general overview of our academic programs, student support services, and the application process. After the information session, you will go on a walking tour of campus where you will see classrooms, science labs, student life facilities, and more! Tours are led by current students who will provide you with an “insider’s” point of view; student tour guides are happy to answer any questions you may have about becoming a future Husky.

When: Monday – Friday (except holidays)
Time: 10 AM and 2 PM
Length: Typical visits last about an hour and fifteen minutes.

College Awareness Day is a day for students to explore opportunities in higher education and learn about diversity and inclusion. High school students will connect with UW Bothell students, faculty and community leaders to celebrate our racial and ethnic identities and discuss the importance of diversity in education.

The conference will consist of five affinity group tracks in the morning: Asians Connecting and Empowering Students (ACES), Black Opportunity and Leadership Day (BOLD), Día de Avanzando Latinx en Educación (DALE), Pacific Islanders Pursuing Education (PIPE), and Reaching American Indian Nations (RAIN), while the afternoon will focus on college awareness and intersectionalities in identity with respect to access and success in higher education.

Additionally, in the afternoon, we will be hosting a college fair.

Featuring as keynote speaker: Nikkita Oliver - one of Seattle Mets 2018 50 Most Infuential Women in Seattle and recent Seattle mayoral candidate.
