I got to experience CHID hospitality for the first time in Autumn 2006. As a new member of the Husky Marching Band, I was on campus nearly two weeks before the start of the term, I didn’t know any of the good spots on campus, and there wasn’t much student activity on campus yet.

Thankfully, she’s not the only one. Anyone who has ever taken a CHID class at all knows that there’s something unique and... Read more
