We feel lucky this St. Patrick’s Day because we’ve grown to 137 discounts! Every month we’re working to get more and more discounts from local vendors and businesses that the UW family can enjoy. Whether it’s your favorite gift store, yoga studio, restaurant, or something else, we will try to get a discount. To learn more of the savings you receive as a UW faculty or staff member click here.
