Natalie Lang

The Office of Student Affairs at the University of Washington Bothell invites you to celebrate the life of Natalie Kay Lang, Admissions and International Student Advisor, who passed away on December 23, 2007.

The Celebration of Life Service will be in the UW Bothell North Creek Events Center on Friday, January 11, 1:00 p.m. To celebrate Natalie's contributions, especially to international students, people are encouraged to wear something with an international aspect.

Natalie passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, friends, coworkers and her beloved international students. She died of unexpected liver problems while on dialysis from kidney failure.

Among many contributions over her 12 years at UW Bothell, Natalie had been very involved in welcoming and supporting international students through a Thanksgiving dinner and a festive Intercultural Night on campus. Natalie was awarded the very prestigious 2004 Staff Award from the Associated Students of the University of Washington Bothell in recognition and appreciation for her outstanding dedication and commitment to her students. 

Natalie Lang graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies with an Option in Comparative U.S. Studies in 1997 and had been working on a Master of Policy Studies degree from the UW Bothell. 

In memory of Natalie, Student Affairs has kept her office, UW1 183, as she left it. You are invited to visit her office to write in a Book of Memories or, if you prefer, write in the adjacent conference room (UW1 192) for more privacy, or send a letter. 

Letters may be mailed to:

Student Affairs, UW Bothell 18115 Campus Way NE
