Student Stories

Sarah Anderson

I think that every student should know about the UW Counseling Center. I heard about it spring quarter, but I wish I had heard about it sooner and had been encouraged to go at least talk to someone about my first quarter. I experienced Transfer Shock, I barely overcame it, but I had my family’s love and support! Thus far, my favorite Husky memory has been attending football games with my sister.
