The University of Washington-Bothell is accepting applications for its first freshman class, and the school is inviting high-school seniors and their families to attend upcoming information sessions.

Thanks to a state bill signed earlier this year, UW Bothell’s first freshman class will enter in fall 2006, a significant change for a campus that has traditionally served transfer and graduate students.

Students and families interested in learning more about the campus and its academic programs can attend either of two information sessions: 6-8 p.m. Tuesday and 1-3 p.m. Dec. 2. Both will be held in the UW1 Building, Room 103, at the UW Bothell campus, 18115 Campus Way N.E. The deadline to apply is Jan. 15. For more information, call 425-352-5000 or visit freshmen.uwb.edu.
