University of Washington Turns 150!

It’s a big day east of Laurelhurst in the University District. University of Washington celebrates its 150th birthday! Congratulations UW and GO DAWGS!

Keeping with the tradition, there should be a sea of people dressed in purple, as it is Purple Friday today. Additionally, there are lots of freebies for fellow Huskies. Cupcake Royale is giving out a free cupcake and you can snag a free shirt if you stop by Red Square on campus. Additionally, there’s special deals at various vendors and down at University Village, such as Something Silver, To see a full list and to see more details on what to expect for “W” day, visit the official website.

If you have a cute UW picture that you’d like to share, post it on University of Washington’s Facebook. It’d be great to see some Laurelhurst folks up there, sporting their college pride.


GO UW!
