The Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center is recruiting student mentors for the year of 2017 – 2018 Mentor Power For Success program. The Mentor Power for Success Program is a dynamic autumn quarter partnership between first-year Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity (OMA&D) students (protégés) and continuing UW students (mentors), to help protégés make a successful transition to university life. Mentor students use their knowledge of UW resources and services to guide protégés as they navigate the breadth of what the university has to offer.Read more
On Friday, May 19th, we’ll be cutting, weighing, and bagging crab bait (mackerel) that will be distributed to volunteers throughout Puget Sound. No prior experience is required but you should have a strong stomach and not be too squeamish about blood (mackerel blood, that is). You should wear ‘field clothes’ you don’t mind getting dirty/stinky. It’s smelly, messy work but we make it fun.Read more
My name is Jieying Chen (Jaylin) and I recently graduated with a B.S Biochemistry from the UW. I am interning for a community DIY Bio Lab called SoundBio Lab located just off campus. Our mission is promoting science education, providing access to biotechnology, and fostering self-learning in order to inspire the next generation of scientists. We work with local after school programs and home school organizations to host in-lab workshops as well as provide outreach events to bring science directly to our community.
