While the start of fall brings many of our favorite things (hello, pumpkin spice everything and Husky Football), it’s also one of the most hectic times of the year. With the new school year starting up in under a week, UW campuses (and our schedules) are bound to be busier. The perfect way to combat autumn craziness? Keep your work-life balance intact by taking advantage of our many discounts.

So, if you bleed purple and gold, this offer is perfect for you. Alaska is offering 10% off all airline tickets, so book your travel now!
If you’re already in the Seattle area and don’t need to travel far to cheer on the Dawgs, we’ve got you covered.

While fall is just beginning, baseball season is sadly coming to an end. Enjoy the last of it during a special Dawg Daze Mariners game on October 1.
