On July 30th UW EE advisors are welcoming university representatives from WSU - Pullman and Vancouver, Eastern Washington University's satellite campus at NSCC, UW-Bothell, Seattle University and Seattle Pacific University to speak with you about their EE programs. EE alternatives and strategies for admissions to other local EE programs will be presented and you will have time to meet with these representatives for additional information and advising after the main info session. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about other EE programs in Washington - and potentially be admitted to an EE program for autumn 2012!

We first offered this info session in February - after spring quarter admissions this year - and had a great turn-out; Students commented they were very happy they came to the session, and followed up and were admitted to area EE programs.

This info session will cover:

*What alternatives/strategies are available to you?
*Which accredited EE programs in this area are accepting applications now or in the near future?
*Important resources at the UW for potential majors.

Time: 3:30-5:30pm
