Each year, the University of Washington recognizes the top student (of roughly 7,500) in the previous year’s Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior classes as class Medalists.
This year’s UW Freshman Medalist is CSE’s Eric Lei. Eric entered the UW after 10th grade through the Robinson Center’s UW Academy.
CSE has an extraordinary record of UW Medalists: Eric is the fifteenth CSE student to be recognized as a University of Washington medalist since 2000.
