Carrie Newman wins orientation award


One of the first people to greet new students at the University of Washington Bothell is Carrie Newman.

As the advising and orientation program manager, she plays a big role at the UW Bothell Office of Orientation and Transition Programs in welcoming first-year and transfer students to campus.

Now her work has been recognized by the Association for Orientation, Transition, Retention in Higher Education. She was awarded the 2017 Region 1 Outstanding Orientation, Transition & Retention Professional Award at a conference last month in Corvallis, Oregon.

Newman, who has worked at UW Bothell since June 2015, is noted for innovative online orientation programs and her work with first-year mentorship, advising and orientations for students and parents.
