Seven UW Bothell students in Husky 100


Seven University of Washington Bothell students are among the 2018 Husky 100 — an honor that recognizes undergraduate and graduate students from all three UW campus who make the most of their college experience. 

Husky 100 students are acclaimed for “connecting the dots” between classroom learning and experience. They engage in community-based projects, internships and study abroad opportunities. They are recognized for their innovation, commitment to inclusivity, capacity for leadership and academics. 

In its third year, being chosen for the Husky 100 was very competitive, with more than 1,700 nominations and nearly 600 applications. As part of this prestigious group, students receive more career-boosting opportunities to expand networks with alumni, faculty, staff and business leaders.
