University of Washington-Bothell Campus Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


Before coming to this school, I wish I had heard of it a lot sooner, that way I could have spoken to admissions earlier and submit my applications for admission and housing a lot earlier. I had just recently learned that it was a small community compared to the main campus, which is absolutely perfect for me since I have grown an attachment to the like since high school. It definitely takes a lot of unecessary stress off my shoulders


I wish I knew how difficult some of the classes were going to be, that way I could have studied them a little bit before that quarter started.


There computer science program has some differences between UW Seattles program. Also, my girlfriend does not go here, but I don't mind driving her to UWS in the mornings and going to class at Bothell in the evenings. :)


The only thing I wish I knew before coming to this school would be that it existed. If I had known about UW Bothell I would have been here in my freshman year. The school changed the way I think about higher education. It is a caring, innovative, community oriented, sustainable, diverse, growing and vibrant campus. If possible I would go back and tell myself that I should follow every opportunity and get involved! It is the best thing you can do for your higher education experience.


That there are many group projects, it was hard to meet up on campus with the other students because most of the older students have jobs off campus. The class times are inconvenient also since it's geared towards students who work in the morning-afternoon. All of the classes I needed to take were usually in the night time, and I work in the evenings.


I wish i would of filled out more scholarships for school so i could focus on school versus working and maintaining grades. I would like to focus more on learning but it is time related since i have to work.




That the age range of students is very diverse, making opinions and values very different than those of a typical 18 year old student.
