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.
