W Day

Together UW

Every year on W Day, Huskies turn the world purple and gold. Huskies everywhere throw on their favorite gear to show off their Purple Pride, coming together to share their love for the UW. What began in 2011 as the University’s 150th anniversary celebration now lives on as an annual tri-campus party.

So, let’s celebrate what it means to be a Husky! All are welcome at this free, community event on the UW Bothell campus.

Grab a free W cupcake, a slice of pizza and UW shirt. Throw your Dubs up in the photo booth, enjoy music by UWAVE and hang with fellow Huskies.
