International Students, cash cows for the UW

“If you’re studying, you’re not living,” the man at the residency office said. 

In autumn of 2010, I had gone to the residency office to turn in my Washington Higher Education Residency Affidavit. I had been living in the state of Washington since January of 2007 and had graduated from a Washington state high school. I chose the UW over all other universities, thinking it would be the most affordable way to my diploma. 

Explosive crude oil trains: An issue no one knows about until it’s too late

Seattle residents have stood for hours this July protesting oil trains. What right do they have to protest when they knowingly moved onto a property bordering train tracks?

My dog and my paper: Saying farewell to both

I think my dog is dying. She might — hell, she’ll probably go by the time this is published. Mabel. She’s a long-haired, miniature dachshund, chocolate and tan, and she has liver failure and kidney failure and her back legs don’t work so hot and my mom’s getting acupuncture for her. We’ve seen dogs die before, we’ve seen people die too, but it sucks all the same. We got her when I was 8 years old. I’m 22 now. Fourteen is a long time for a dachshund, I’m told.

But that’s just how it started. When Gadau sat at the meeting and listened to the mission, she fell in love.

Since July 27, the Facebook group “FIUTS SUSI 2014” has been filled with posts of love, “adieus,” and nostalgia by those who have participated in the Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders in Journalism and New Media.
