Husky Help Organization (H.H.O) is a nonprofit registered student organization in the University of Washington established by several enthusiastic UW Chinese international students at the beginning of 2013. It is an organization dedicated to help UW international students especially those from China, to adjust to the new living/social/studying environment in UW, and also helping them to get a better sense of belonging to the UW life and our “Husky Help Family”. There are already 40 officers and 3500 members in this organization. (till November, 2015)
In 2014, our organization passed through a big transaction. Before the summer vacation, we hold a lot of meaningful events, such as the Major Introduction Meeting (quarterly), Tulip Visiting, Chinese Spring Festival Party, Seattle Cultural Meeting, and so on. Because of our helpful supporting to students, the Office of Admission of UW asked help from us to help the first in person and online Admitted International Student Preview to help answer questions from freshman applicants who were offered admission.
During the 2014 summer vacation, we hold the First Chinese Freshman Reception in Beijing, China, which get a great affection in both China and America. And in 2015, this event also got the attention from our Vice Present for Student Life. He even showed up and have a wonderful speech at the beginning of our event. Now, this event became our annually big part of the celebration for these incoming freshman before they came to UW.
At the beginning of fall quarter, we hold a more than 500 Freshman Welcome Party in the HUB ballroom. In this party, we offered free drink and food, and a nice social area. During the quarter, we especially put our focus on helping students in a more realistic way. We invite a coach from a local formal driving school to hold an opening lecture for those students who are interested in or might need some professional driving skills. Moreover, we hold the Amazon Info Open Meeting in order to popularize the career future. We invite the vice president of Amazon China to introduce and solve all the common questions from UW students, such as how to apply Amazon, how to be outstanding, how to build their resume, etc. There were more than 100 students showed up during the meeting. Finally, some of them even have dinner with those faculties of Amazon. Furthermore, we organized the question-answer event, which is also a part of our annual events, we reserve a room and invite some in major juniors and seniors to share their experience to freshman and sophomore students who might need some help on choosing courses and getting into majors.
In less than 2 years, Husky Help Organization already has such major accomplishments. This is not the end. There will be more exciting events coming soon... Keeping follow us and BE BOUNDLESS!
