What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a huge school, so lots of people, but the campus is so beautiful. There’s lots to do. You can go visit Downtown Seattle, go to University Village, The Ave, basically anywhere the Link or busses can take you. Work load does depend on how many and what classes you take. But other than that it’s been pretty great. Go Dawgs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, I didn't expect to enjoy my time at UW as much as I did. I grew up in the Seattle area and in high school I was 110% set on not going there. I went to a school in another state for 2 years and it turned out to not be a great fit for me. I initially thought of UW as my backup school for schools I was looking to transfer to, but I am now so glad I ended up going to UW. I grew so much as a person during the short 2 years I was there, and I will always be grateful for the opportunities I was able to pursue there (study abroad, student leadership, clubs, internships, etc.) There is always so much happening on campus! Also, if there is any subject you are interested in, there is probably a class, department, or club relating to that subject. There are classes at UW (such as Icelandic) that you will not be able to find at any other university in the area (or even the country). UW provided me the much needed change that I was hoping for after I left my previous university. That school was a small, private school in a small town, and I was very bored there. If you want a school with a lot of excitement, UW is the place for you. GO HUSKIES!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

By each dorm room in the University of Washington there's a chalkboard where students can draw whatever they please. As I was heading to my dorm room I stopped to see that someone had written a story about bunnies by the beach, stopping mid-sentence to give other students space to "complete the story". I took a piece of chalk and described that "the bunnies were having a great day when all of a sudden..." As I passed by this room the next day I found that "...all of a sudden one of the bunnies decided to go for a swim..." Each day as I passed by that door to get to my room I noticed that more had been added to the story. There were times when a scrawling hand would write about the bunnies drowning in the ocean and then, written in large, bubbly handwriting, a segment where the bunnies would be saved. Sometimes someone would write something completely predictable, while the next day I would find out that the bunnies were now riding on dragons. This was my first impression of the student culture at the University of Washington. My point with describing this story is that the University of Washington may be a huge university, and while this can seem daunting (it was for me), its size allows you to build smaller communities of extremely diverse individuals, each with their own addition to the story. If you have an open mind and are looking to make connections that encourage you to build off of the ideas of others, then this school is for you.

I love the school atmosphere! Everyone is so friendly and willing to accept each other. The staff is also wonderful. So understanding, and most actually care about how students are doing! It’s a great feat for a university, and I applaud them for how clean and pretty the campus is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a big campus with a lot of people. I struggled to find like minded people as myself in the beginning but with time and through extracurricular I found some. Class are difficult and are usually a large size in your undergrad. It can be hard to find one on one help from professors, TA's, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For those that don't want to read, overall the UW is a great school to go to. There's a community for everyone and it's a generally safe space to be. However with that, I do have some problems, mainly with accommodations. For my first year at UW I stayed at the dorms, specifically in McMahon hall. Now I'll admit I knew going in that my experience wouldn't be the best since it was an old dorm, but the extent of my disappointment was greater than I originally anticipated. The dorm was very dirty, and even with frequent cleaning, dust seemed to accumulate very quickly. There was a very poor system of central heating and an even less in terms of cooling. The internet was bad and overall I would not recommend dorm life. However, the dorms are my only complaint because outside of the dorms, the school becomes a lot better. The walk to classes is always a highlight of my day as I get to pop in a podcast and admire the beautiful collaboration between building and nature. The people in the school are very friendly and I think that with the plethora of on campus groups, you would have no trouble finding a place to fit in. The night life at UW is also something that I would highly recommend to people, whether you want to go out to eat, party at Greek row, or just play some smash bros at Area 1, I guarantee that you can find something to enjoy after the classes are done. All in all, I recommend that campus and vibe of UW but really suggest that you stay away from living in the dorms.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The UW offers many clubs and opportunities to find your own home inside the larger community. As a Freshman and from a smaller town, it was quite intimidating attending such a large school. In that vein, there is exceptional diversity on this campus. You'll meet people from all tracks of life, from as young as 17 to as old as 65, and from every continent (besides Antarctica, of course)! The campus is expansive and will most certainly impress anyone who gets the chance to explore it. As for academics, it's a research school and the classes reflect this standard. Every teacher I've had has been well informed in their topics and project true enthusiasm for student learning. However, many of the classes offered are what's called a "weed out" class, meaning they are very intense and meant to oust those unfit for that major. The university does provide methods for studying and tutoring, however, which can aid those who are struggling.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Washington is a college that will always have a place in my heart. The campus is filled with students and professors bustling around with enthusiasm. There is always something fun to do, whether it be cheering on the Huskies at Montlake Stadium or getting bubble tea on The Ave. The immense libraries are open all night long, there are warm coffee shops everywhere, and people seem genuinely happy. The campus itself is beautifully chiseled with pink cherry blossom trees, gothic architecture, and views of the snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance. As an upcoming junior, I have nothing but positive things to say about the University of Washington. I live in my dream apartment, have made lifelong friends, work on campus, and genuinely enjoy attending my lectures. I am thriving in my chosen major and feel as though I am receiving a well-rounded education. I have personally benefited greatly through creative assignments, presentations, career fairs, speeches, and other forms of learning that the university regularly offers. Overall, the University of Washington provides an exquisite experience for a higher education. The campus is located in the heart of Seattle, Washington, and there is so much to do, see, and experience. The lectures are refreshing and it seems as though the professors genuinely care about the well-being of their students. There are many exclusive opportunities for students to flourish, such as: membership to the Intramural Activities Building, access to art museums, free concerts, sporting events, clubs and organizations, and so much more. I can honestly say that there is no place I would rather be. Go dawgs!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UW! It's the best choice I could have possibly made! While Seattle is a little pricy, there are so many things to do that won't break the bank. There is a possibility of a new adventure every day. The people in Seattle aren't the warmest, but once you find your people there is nothing better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experiences here have changed a lot going from freshman year to sophomore year. Class sizes for introductory level courses are huge (~400-500 people), so you really have to rely on yourself. Now that I'm in a small major, class sizes range from 80 for our department introductory courses and more like 15-30 for specific, higher level classes. UW is a research school and as I'm interested in doing research as a career, I've found attending this school great for networking and gaining experience. However, having researchers doing high level research as your professors can be a huge hit or miss (not all of them are great at teaching or explaining basic, lower level concepts).
