All first year students will be assigned a Peer Coash as part of the First Year Coaching Program.  You will meet your Peer Coach at your virtual A&O.  In September, you will be contacted by your Peer Coach who will serve as your mentor and personal guide to UW Bothell throughout Fall quarter.  This peer will set-up monthly meetings with you to go over your goals, answer questions, and point you in the right direction as you create your Husky experience.

A personal computer or tablet with internet access to and sound will be ideal to fully participate in the orientation process. Accessing the orientation process on a smartphone device will make it more difficult to participate fully. Please also be prepared to engage in activities actively and take notes.
