Making the Most of Life Online

Your Toolkit for Spring 2020

Our lives have been upended. And yet here we are online, trying to figure out how to study, work and stay connected. There are still classes to attend, projects to complete, jobs, internships, and scholarships to apply for, and friendships to enjoy – these goals and activities help us stay grounded in who we are and what we hope to achieve, regardless of our circumstances.

The UW community is working hard to make your remote experience the best it can be. Your part in that is to take care of yourself, do a little at a time, and reconnect with the energy and drive that first brought you to UW.

Below, the Husky Experience Toolkit Team has compiled a list of key resources to help you succeed in the weeks ahead. And you can always access the complete collection of Toolkit articles for more on making the most of your Husky Experience.
