UW Bothell Husky 100

2018 winners

Each year, the University of Washington selects 100 students who are making the most of their Husky experience. Seven UW Bothell students were selected as part of the Husky 100 Class of 2018. What’s special about a Husky 100 recipient? They dare to do. They use what they learn in the classroom to create change in their community. We are proud to introduce our Husky 100 awardees.
