The University of Washington has one of the largest weeks of welcome in the nation! We host over 250 academic and co-curricular events through the first week of the school year. This year, Dawg Daze will run from Thursday, September 24 through Sunday, October 4. To get a glimpse of Dawg Daze from a student perspective, check out this Dawg Daze Video.
Dawg Daze not only welcomes new students but also welcomes returning students, staff, and faculty to a new school year. Dawg Daze at the Mariners has been a key Dawg Daze event for almost 10 years! You, your colleagues, family, and friends are welcome to join us on Saturday, October 3 as the Mariners face off with the Oakland Athletics at 6:10 p.m. at Safeco Field.
This year we’re excited to kick-off a new event with the Seattle Sounders FC! Please join us for the inaugural year of Dawg Daze with Sounders FC on Sunday, October 4 at 6:30 p.m. The Supporters Shield winning Sounders will be taking on their long-time rivals the LA Galaxy and the singing, chanting, and scoring provides an atmosphere that’s fun and entertaining for all!
Discounted tickets to both events are available to the UW community and include a FREE Seattle Mariners Dawg Daze t-shirt and a Sounders Dawg Daze drawstring bag! Different t-shirt sizes are available for the Mariners game while supplies last. Grab your friends and family and join us as we kick off the school year with our beloved Seattle sports teams!
