UW Impact

Husky Caucus Directory

The Husky Caucus is comprised of current state legislators who are graduates of any program from any of the University of Washington’s three campuses. We are proud to have UW alums on both sides of the aisle, representing various communities across Washington state, and from all types of educational backgrounds. With degrees from statistics to social work, pharmacy to electrical engineering, these alums have dedicated themselves to public service. UW Impact is proud to highlight the Huskies serving in office.

What is your favorite place on campus?: I enjoy traveling the world for many reasons, but one, in particular, is to see all the great architecture that was built long before any of us were even a thought. The Suzzallo Library has some of the most beautiful architecture I’ve ever seen and reminds me of many of the great structures from around the world. One of the primary missions of every university is to teach students about our history so that they can help build a better future. UW is well known for its progress and innovation, and there are plenty of buildings on campus that reflect that. The Suzzallo Library provides that anchor to our past. The solid oak tables, vaulted ceilings, and natural light in the Reading Room are simply stunning and provided the perfect setting for studying.
