Beyond First Year

This toolkit is designed to help you make the most of your time at UW. Wherever you are in your university career, use this toolkit to challenge yourself, explore your options, and integrate all you are learning — your Husky Experience is more than a major!

Toolkit messages are delivered to students every week of the academic year through MyUW. In addition to First Year messages, the articles below can be found by students through the Husky Experience tab on MyUW; they address four interconnected dimensions of the Husky Experience: Know Yourself, Know the World, Make Your Way, and Weave it Together.

Creating your Husky Experience is an opportunity unique to you, but you don’t have to start from scratch or go it alone. We are a team of UW staff members who spent time collecting suggestions — from students, faculty, and other staff — on how to help all students successfully create the kind of Husky Experience that will serve them well.

The Husky Experience Toolkit is a collection of suggestions to help you challenge yourself, think about options, and weave together all you are learning. They are being delivered via MyUW so that all students have access to these ideas and resources.

Why We Made This Toolkit

We are a team of UW staff members who care about your success. We want to help you create the kind of Husky Experience that will serve you best. To do this, we gathered and curated advice from students, faculty, and staff from across UW on how to make the most of your time here.

The toolkit was curated by Michaelann Jundt of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Janice Fournier and William Washington of UW Information Technology and Katy DeRosier from the Office of the Provost.

How it works

These articles are delivered via MyUW so that all students have access to these ideas and resources. New articles are highlighted each week on the home page to provide timely advice, but read and explore them anytime.

We plan to add new articles and resources each academic year.
