A positive force for change 

2024 UW Bothell Husky 100 honorees support issues ranging from social justice to science.

Every year, the University of Washington recognizes 100 undergraduate and graduate students from the Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses who have made the most of their time at the UW — inside and outside the classroom. 

These Husky 100 students actively connect the dots between what they learn in their studies with what they want to do to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for our world. 

Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.  

Six UW Bothell students were selected as part of the Husky 100 Class of 2024. They exemplify a desire to be a positive force for change through their drive to support issues ranging from social justice and mental health to advances in science and technology. 

We recognize them here with a brief introduction, to be followed in coming months by individual profiles on their experiences and future plans. Browse more quotes from the honorees on the UW Bothell Husky 100 webpage and see all 100 winners on the main UW Husky 100 webpage
