Welcome back to another exciting quarter at UW! I hope you all had a relaxing and long spring break to return to a campus that is in full cherry blossom bloom.
“Quote of the Week”
“There is no comfort in the growth zone and there is no growth in the comfort zone” – Rabbi Will Berkovitz
The ASUW Student senate officially passed a resolution in support of improving lighting from high pressure sodium lighting to LED lighting which has been proven to be effective lighting on and off campus to reduce crime.

U-District Night Walk and Safety Survey:
Last quarter we were able to successfully have 1000 students respond to the student safety survey as well as have a large turn out of students from various living communities (Commuter, Greek, Residence Halls, etc) to join UWPD and SPD and survey on and off campus to find issues that are affecting campus. Look forward to hearing presentations in the future.
