Each year the University of Washington recognizes 100 students from all three campuses who are making the most of their Husky experience. This year, 12 of the Husky 100 are from UW Bothell.
What all these impressive students share — along with the dozens of other students from UW Bothell who have been honored since the Husky 100 program launched in 2016 — is their commitment to completing and sharing their education, their skills as leaders and innovators, and their drive and tenacity.
Below, we briefly introduce the 12 students selected to be among the 2021 Husky 100 from UW Bothell. You can read more of their comments on the UW Bothell Husky 100 webpage and see all 100 on the main UW Husky 100 webpage.
