Registration for Summer quarter is now open!

If you are a current or incoming UW student, there are a number of great reasons to take classes during Summer Quarter. It's a perfect time to enroll in a course you need, explore a new interest, or check out a special program. Earn academic credit and make this summer count.

Why UW Summer Quarter?

  • Better Access. Grab a seat in a popular course. Many courses that fill up fast during the regular academic year are open during the summer and often have fewer students.
  • Major, Minor and Requirement Courses. Catch up or get ahead with Summer Quarter classes. Check off a major requirement, a prerequisite or an Area of Knowledge course.
  • Accelerated Learning. Make the most of your time with condensed, intensive summer courses. The full quarter lasts nine weeks, and some classes are half that length.

Get started here:

Team up with a visiting student from South Asia this summer to learn and have lots of fun!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: From June 20 to July 16, 2016 FIUTS is hosting the Study of the US Institutes for Student Leaders in Journalism and New Media (SUSI) in Seattle. This exchange program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, brings 20 undergraduate students between the ages of 19 and 25 from Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Nepal to Seattle. While here, international participants will study journalism and new media, participate in volunteer and service activities, leadership workshops and cultural excursions.

SUSI Ambassadors are University of Washington students who volunteer for the FIUTS SUSI program and receive training and experience in leadership, planning, teamwork, and citizen diplomacy. Ambassadors are an integral part of the SUSI program and act as cultural liaisons, peer mentors, friends and leaders during the international participants’ time in Seattle. As a SUSI Ambassador, you can learn new skills, have fun, make friends, build your resume and support FIUTS’ mission to inspire cross-cultural friendship and understanding on campus and in our community.

Ambassadors will have the opportunity to meet and spend time with all 20 SUSI students, but will be matched with one specific SUSI participant to support throughout the program. Ambassadors should be available for 3 hours of pre-program training, an overnight retreat with SUSI participants on Sunday, June 26th and 1-3 service, leadership and social activities per week (including a Mariners Baseball Game, a visit to the Space Needle, a service project, the Closing Ceremony, and more!) between June 22nd and July 16th. Ambassadors are invited to attend the series of leadership workshops alongside participants throughout the program.

Please note that SUSI Ambassadors are volunteers. All Ambassador meals, transportation and admission fees during program activities are provided by FIUTS.

Please complete the application here, and contact Tom Lang with questions. Application deadline is May 30, 2016.
