There are academic counselors … and then there is Lindsay Michimoto.
Lindsay joined the UW CSE family as our staff graduate advisor in November 2000. Since then, she has:
- processed 14,245 applications to the Ph.D. program,
- personally attended to the needs of 602 Ph.D. students,
- and provided more than 250,000 M&Ms (peanut and plain) to students, staff and faculty.
Current and former students, faculty, and staff gathered on Friday to thank her and wish her a wonderful retirement.

Hilarious tribute video created by grad students here.
