Go Huskies!

Living the Husky Life is a state of mind and a lifestyle that's shaped by campus traditions, community connections, and confidence-building adventures. As a Husky, you are part of an inclusive community of diverse perspectives. We celebrate our differences and our shared connections. Traditions bring us together to define our purpose and explore new human experiences. Our time together makes for life-long friendships. We bring out the best in each other and rally in support of each other's accomplishments.

The Husky is intelligent and free spirited. We are agile and resilient in new environments. We are driven and will hunker down to take on new challenges, discover something new, or create a solution. We are welcoming and enjoy the diversity of the members of our pack. We work together as a community but support each other as we show our unique strengths and become leaders in our professions and our communities.
