The University of Washington, Bothell, is holding a "Freshman Preview Day" Jan. 7 as part of its expansion to include a freshman class.
The university’s Bothell campus, which has served only transfer students, will have a freshman class starting in fall 2006. The preview day will give students a glimpse of what life will be like on the campus.
The events take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Faculty and students will be on hand to discuss their experiences, and those attending the event will get a look at academic programs and student services. Reservations for the event should be made by Jan. 4. The priority-application deadline for the first freshman class is Jan. 15.
