Alumni Connections

Beginning your college journey can be exciting and overwhelming; it can help to have an extended UW network to reach out to for guidance and advice.  Many alumni faced the same challenges and are eager to share their stories and encouragement with the next generation of Huskies. Here are three easy ways to make a connection.

Read alumni stories

If you need a quick dose of inspiration, the UW Alumni Association keeps an ever-growing catalog of personal stories and advice from alumni who identified as First Generation students during their time at UW. 


Visit UW Husky Landing 

This online professional development network is a welcoming community for career-minded Huskies, ready to connect. Find other First Generation students and alumni, as well as recommendations to grow your own UW network, career-related events, professional resources and more.  

Join a UWAA event or program

Every quarter the UW Alumni Association (UWAA) offers a series of programs and events designed to bring alumni and students together – from career panels to 1-on-1 job shadowing to Husky Socials, focused on fun.  Learn more.
