Highlights from NASI 2019

  • Our friends from New Zealand, who are a part of the Maori community, came to UW and performed various songs, dance, and language exercises in exchange of culture.

  • The workshops that the faculty and staff, from many different departments across the UW campus, provided an experience that allowed students to learn, engage, and take away from their involvement.

  • Through teaching the students of NASI their cultural traditions, the experience was enriching, with a broader example of different Indigenous cultures from around the world.

Peer Mentors of NASI:

Our team would not be the same without our dedicated Peer Mentors. Every year, 4-5 outstanding UW Students step forward and assume positions that help the NASI board get going! While not only being tremendous team builders, these mentors monitor students to make sure their time during NASI is one of fun, excitement, safety, and enjoyment. They help students to and from their mock-college classes, as well as stay with them in the residential halls. The NASI team is dependent on their creativity and perseverance!
