COLLEGE SUCCESS For students… the Husky Experience is a method for demystifying college success. COLLEGE SUCCESS For staff… the Husky Experience is a way for to assist students as they navigate their undergraduate experience. COLLEGE SUCCESS The HE incorporates 4 universal themes (or reference points) Identity: Who am I becoming and what will I stand for? Choice: What am I doing with my time and effort and is it helping me to get where I want to go? COLLEGE SUCCESS Networks: Who am I meeting at the UW and how can these people help me? Trajectory: What will I be doing in 1, 2, 5, years and are those things connected to what I’m passionate about? The HE incorporates 4 universal themes (or reference points) The hope is that wherever an undergraduate goes for help – with each contact point – these themes get brought up on conversation. Identity Choice COLLEGE SUCCESS Networks Trajectory So what is the Husky Experience? • A promotional effort to get students and staff a way of theming college success. • A scaffold for getting students and staff to have purposeful, intentional, and reflective conversations about their own HE • HE is NOT a plan to tell anyone how to do their work • HE is a “way” of doing our work with students Identity Choice COLLEGE NetworksSUCCESS Trajectory WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON? The Husky Experience Provost’s Office • Provost Series – Faculty Focus • Helping UW Students Prepare for Life after Graduation: It Takes All of Us • Follow up conversations with faculty • Developing resources for faculty • Responses to Futures Committee Recommendations – • Producing our next generation of leaders • Proficiency in what the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) calls “essential learning outcomes”— broad, transferrable skills. • Transformative, “high-impact” learning experiences that help students develop skills through real life problem-solving whether in or out of the classroom. • Introducing students early to career strategy skills.

But because of this, I feel helpless and stressed a lot of times because I do not know how to ask for help. And I would like to have a group or community that I can talk with and find some support. Also I think the seminar will be very helpful to the rest of my studying because I also plan on going to graduate school so it would be great to learn more about the American culture” (3.8 GPA) “As an first year international student, I tried my best to get involved in the society here and learn well. However, I found there is a lot of difficulties that is hard to overcome by myself. Besides, I have a lot of questions about how to get more involved in the life here and how to get better academic performance. So I want to get involved into this research” (3.7 GPA) bagels + coffee with the ISSC!
