ISS & ISHIP Hours this week

Friday is Veterans Day!

I'm sure you're all aware that you don't have school this Friday, November 11, but do you know why?
In the U.S., we celebrate Veterans Day every November 11th. During this day, we honor the people who have served in the military and fought in foreign wars.
You may actually meet veteran students in your classes here at UW. There is even an office dedicated to offering them support.
If you happen to meet a veteran student or community member this week, ask them about their life or experience. We have so much to learn from one another when we connect.

You can get your DS-2019 travel signature next Tuesday! Please join us!
