Fellow Huskies,
Do you want to have a say in the future of the Odegaard Undergraduate Library?  If tuition increases or financial aid is cut, will you still be able to attend school?  See below for two important actions you can take right now.

1. Odegaard Undergraduate Library Renovation Survey
2. Budget Cuts & New Revenue
3. Campus Events
4. Get Involved- the Vagina Monologues and Everybody EveryBODY Fashion Show

1. Odegaard Undergraduate Library Renovation

Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey on the renovation of the Odegaard Undergraduate Library. The Washington State Legislature has provided a little over $16.5 million in the 2011-13 biennium to renovate Odegaard to support 21st Century students and learning.  No tuition dollars from students are being used to fund the renovation and future renovations are dependent on additional state or outside funding.  In order to ensure that students have an opportunity to participate in the renovation, please follow the link below and fill out the student survey.
