2023.10.14 -  UWAAJ Reunion 2023

Thank you to all the Huskies who joined us for the reunion yesterday 🎉 We're so happy to finally resume our annual gathering and see everyone.

2019年ぶりのUWAAJ Reunion 2023にご参加をいただきました皆様、ありがとうございました。久しぶりに皆様と再会ができ嬉しく思います🎉今後ともUWAAJをよろしくお願いいたします。

2023.07.08 -  Husky Japan Send-Off

19 undergrads will be attending the UW from this fall and 6 of them (plus 4 mums and dads) participated in our annual Kick Off (formerly called Send-off) on Jul. 8. 2 JSA officers presented what should be very useful information to the students-to-be and there were LOTS of questions during the mingling session.

(3 UWAAJ Board members were present to assist with the logistics.)

We wish the students well and hope that they enjoy their stay in Seattle while staying safe. We also hope that we'll see them back for our events in the future!

(We have their prior permission to post their pictures on this page.)
