Advising News

Welcome to the Pol S Advising blog. See also our new searchable lists of Internship Opportunities and Scholarship & Award Opportunities.

The nature and purpose of this website is to assist students interested in the study of political science by helping them find resources provided by the University of Washington and outside providers. This information is forwarded to this blog as a courtesy and an illustration of possible resources. The Political Science department does not endorse or promote any specific products, services, or vendors.

I know it is short notice but my RSO is hosting an event this Tuesday with Pramila Jayapal. The congresswoman will give a brief update and then open the floor for questions from students! I was told that you run an event list serve for the Political Science department and thought that people in the department might be interested in attending! I have attached a flier with more information.  The event is 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm this Tuesday the 5th in Gowen 201.
