This week we are talking about the University of Washington where Mrs. Austin earned a Bachelor of Science in Zoology, a Bachelor of Science in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology as well as her Teaching certificate. Mrs. Austin’s favorite place in college was the HUB where she played foosball, pool, and bowling with her friends. Interesting fact about UW, Husky stadium has the record for having the loudest game in college football history: 130 decibels in 1992 when the played the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
