Special Sections

Our Special Sections are just that: special. From our semi-scandalous (mostly-educational) Sex Edition to a paper-wide effort to commemorate Earth Day to the Game Daily fit for any true Husky sports fanatic, The Daily invites you to take a deeper look into the topics you care about.

    Campus Life 

    Summer 2020 



Welcome, new Huskies! One thing we all have in common this year: none of us know what to expect. None of us have ever experienced the UW in quite this format — socially distanced, masked up, and with a triple helping of Zoom classes. But let’s be honest, your college experience was bound to have a few curveballs. Plus, the fact that you are pursuing higher education during a global pandemic, a civil rights movement, and a recession, will be a great story to tell the grandkids (or anyone who gets on your case about your grades). This is truly one of the defining moments of our generation. It’s also a great opportunity to “zoom” (sorry) out and reexamine our priorities as a campus, as a community. How are we going to keep each other safe? How are we going to support each other from afar? What really matters to us? What we are doing in our virtual classrooms is as important as ever, but the world around us is there to provide us with a healthy dose of perspective as well. When you get tired of pondering the big questions, turn here. These pages are packed with tips to enrich your UW experience, venues for late-night shenanigans, and heartfelt well-wishes from current and past Huskies. We at The Daily are nervous but boundlessly excited to embark on this next year alongside you.

Without the parents around comes a new kind of freedom: late-night eating. And let’s be honest, in high school we all romanticized getting french fries at 1 a.m. on a school night in college. Speaking from experience, this exhilarating new freedom is something worth indulging in. These are t…

If any future Husky was ever hesitant to commit to the UW, a campus tour would surely seal the deal. The campus is beautiful — and it's not just the staff and students who believe this. In 2018, the Matador Network named our campus the third most beautiful in the country, behind University o…

With the UW announcing a hybrid model for this upcoming autumn quarter, students may not have in-person classes, RSOs, or anything else that is typically held on campus. While not ideal, this doesn’t mean that we can’t still make connections with our professors, peers, and the UW community a…

College is not looking like any of us expected it to, but for freshmen, the transition to online school may be particularly difficult. It may seem like there will be fewer opportunities to make friends and fewer places to study, and those weed-out classes may suddenly seem a lot more daunting.
